The machines were supplied by Saudi Arabian-based authorised Genie distributors Middle East Development Co. Ltd. (Medco).

For Saudi Aramco’s steel erectors, electricians, welders, pipe and millwright fitters, whose work involves the use of heavy tools and materials, these heavier capacity machines will provide the ability to work more efficiently and productively. All 10 Genie SX™-125 XC booms were delivered this January.

“When we invest, we are looking for equipment with an excellent reputation in the market backed by a local distributor that understands our needs who we can consider as a true business partner,” said Hamad Bin Quraya. He continued, “With Genie and Medco, we have both. In addition to the reliability and quality that Genie products are known for, Medco has a great track record for its holistic vision of after-sales service.”

Genie Xtra Capacity booms are designed to work in applications that require higher capacities. Like all models of the Genie XC family, the Genie SX-125 XC boom features a dual envelope design offering an unrestricted platform capacity of 300kg and a restricted capacity of 454kg. “Offering a third more capacity than standard, our Genie XC booms combine the latest new generation Genie technologies to raise more people, more tools and more materials to increase productivity, and make work in applications that require higher capacities faster and easier,” added Gary Cooke, Genie regional sales manager, Terex AWP, for the Middle East at Terex Equipment Middle East LLC.Genie BinQurayaThe Genie SX-125 XC delivery line-up.

“But, this is not all. Even though Bin Quraya’s Genie SX-125 XC booms are painted orange, which is the company’s corporate colour, they are still Genie blue at heart. This implies that they are engineered to support our customers’ business by keeping their cost of ownership low, which is exactly what forward-looking companies like Bin Quraya are looking for.”

Focusing on a total cost of ownership, in the same way as other Genie XC booms, the Genie SX-125 XC model offers the advantages of extended service intervals. As a result, machines cost less to service and spend more time at work in the field and less time in the workshop, which all add up to increase rates of utilisation and reduce their total cost of ownership.

The Genie SX-125 XC boom also includes a new low-maintenance load-sense cell that monitors the weight on the platform and disables function if the load exceeds the platform load limit. The overload sense functionalities allow the SX-125 XC to offer increased platform load capacity, enhancing the booms’ utilisation and performances in heavy-load applications compared to units with more restrictive platform load limits.
