Genie has extended its boom extend/retract cable replacement intervals for selected boom lifts from seven to 10 years.

Genie says replacement of the boom extend/retract cables is essential to good machine performance and safe machine operation.

Genie National Service Manager Reg Moss says the extension offers operators more equipment uptime and a lower cost of ownership over the potential life of a machine.

"In the spirit of continual improvement, we will analyse additional products with similar requirements, seeking further solutions for our customers," he says.

The replacement interval changes apply to the entire Genie S-60/S-65 and S-100 through to S-125 model families, including all current and previously produced versions of the models.

Related service changes are represented in the most current service manuals by Terex AWP who manufactures the Genie brand of equipment.

The boom extend/retract cables are responsible for the extension and retraction of the number three boom tube.

Genie adds that in addition to the mandatory 10 year cable replacement, regular inspection and adjustment of the cables is essential to good machine performance and safe operation.

The company says the boom extend/retract function should operate smoothly and be free of hesitation, jerking and unusual noise.
