Articulated Boom Lifts

Genie®Z® articulating boom lifts provide the ability to lift up, over and out with precise positioning for ultimate versatility in hard-to-access work areas. Genie introduced the articulating Z-boom in 1985 with the Genie Z-30/20 model — a product that launched the company into the rental segment. These lifts gained incredible popularity due to their unique “up-and-over” capabilities to navigate obstacles at height.
