• Before using the Genie Boom Z-30/20HD or the Genie Boom Z-30/20, thoroughly inspect machine for

damage such as cracked welds, hydraulic leaks, damaged control cables, loose wires and
connections or tire damage. Do not use damaged equipment. (Contact Genie Industries for
instructions.) Do not change operating or safety system.

• Do not raise platform unless machine is level.

• Always survey work area for surface hazards such as holes, drop-offs, bumps and debris before

elevating platform. Do not drive while elevated except on firm, level surfaces with less than 1° slope.

• Do not allow speed of machine down any slope to exceed 3 mph / 4.8 km/h (walking speed).

• Always look up and around for overhead obstructions and electrical conductors. Do not operate

machine or position platform within 10 ft / 3 m of power lines. THIS MACHINE IS NOT
ELECTRICALLY INSULATED.

• Always lower mid-rail bar across entrance after mounting platform.

• Always use OSHA required safety belts and lanyards when occupying platform.

• Do not recharge batteries near sparks or open flame; batteries that are being charged emit highly

explosive hydrogen gas.

• Do not sit, stand or climb on guard rail or mid-rail.

• Do not attach overhanging loads or increase platform size.

PRE-OPERATIONAL & SAFETY INSPECTION

• Open module covers. (Photos 1, 2, 3, & 4)

• Visually inspect machine for any damage or missing parts.

• Check that platform is secured, with all fasteners in place.

• Check hydraulic oil level with platform fully lowered and boom completely retracted. Oil should be

within 1 inch / 2.5 cm of tank top. (Photo 5) IMPORTANT: If hydraulic oil is required, use only Shell
Tellus No. 46 or equivalent.

• Check battery fluid level. CAUTION: To ensure proper battery care, add battery fluid only after

charging.

• Check battery terminals for tightness of connectors and cleanliness. (Photo 6)

• Check battery charger to verify that output meter indicates charging current. (Photo 7)

• Check tires daily. Maintain 45 psi (310 kPa) air pressure. Make sure all lug nuts are securely

tightened. Torque lug nuts to 65 -75 ft-lbs / 289 - 334 Nm. (Photo 8)

• After preceding checks have been completed, operate machine from the ground through all functions

to check that machine and controls are in safe working condition. (Photo 9)
