Lift and Access magazine recently announced winners for their annual Lifting Equipment and Aerial Platforms (LLEAP) Awards.
The LLEAP Awards take into account entries for 5 categories:
- – Aerial lifts: Self-propelled boom or scissor lifts, manually or self-propelled vertical lifts, specialty lifts, and trailer- or truck-mounted aerials.
- – Cranes: Rough-terrain, all-terrain, truck, telescopic-boom crawlers
- – OEM-Developed Features/Essential Components for OEMs: Features developed by an OEM (original equipment manufacturer), or developed jointly by an OEM and a supplier.
- – Aftermarket Support Products or Services: Products and services developed and sold specifically for end users.
- – Material handlers: Rough-terrain telescopic or straight-masted forklifts.
For the aerial lift category, the big winner was the Genie SX-180 Ultra Boom Lift. Some of the reasons this lift won was due to its 180-foot maximum platform height and also the capability to be hauled on a standard 8’2”-wide trailer without requiring an over-width permit.
The SX-180 was the world’s tallest self-propelled boom lift upon release. Plus, it also has a maximum platform capacity is 750 pounds anywhere in the work area.
