Access Hire Australia’s Genie ZX-135/70 Boom Lifts Flexing their Muscles on Mega-Projects


Genie’s ZX-135/70 boom lift has always proved to be a high demand product in the Access Hire fleet, with the company owning the greatest number of Genie ZX-135 boom lifts in the country.  Extremely highly utilised, the Genie ZX-135/70s are regularly rolled out to some of the largest projects Australia has ever seen, fetching a top weekly rate of $3500-$4000 plus levy.

Access Hire’s Genie ZX-135/70 booms lifts have been hired out to some of the biggest resource projects across the country, including Barrow Island in Western Australia, the Wheatstone LNG Project in Onslow and the INPEX Ichthys Project in Darwin.  The mammoth worksites are tough, demanding and are some of the most extreme environments on earth.  The mega-projects are regularly subjected to the searing Australian heat and harsh conditions, with the Genie ZX-135/70 boom lifts proving themselves time and time again with their persistent reliability.  The Genie ZX-135/70 boom lifts are used extensively at their full working height of 43.15m, getting stuck into tasks like allowing operators to reach into pipe racks and reaching up to cooling towers and compressor buildings.  The average weekly use of the Genie ZX-135/70 boom lifts on these sites is approximately 40-50 hours per machine – a reliable, robust and productive worker under the most testing conditions.
