Terex Corporation will mark its 39 year as an exhibitor at the American Rental Association (ARA) The Rental Show in Atlanta, GA, this week by introducing two new Genie products.

The newly redesigned Genie S-85 is engineered to optimize value through greater up time and lower cost of ownership. Multiple design enhancements improve the productivity of this model.

Fixed width axles provide a smooth transition from transport to working on the job, and an exclusive virtual pivot boom assembly keeps the weight of the boom over the chassis, reducing the amount of counterweight needed.

Improved ground and platform control boxes feature simple colour graphics and have been redesigned with like functions grouped together. The new control system provides a swift 68 second ascent and smooth comfortable operation.

Serviceability has also been enhanced; the former shotgun style cylinder boom assembly has been replaced with a single cylinder and sequencing cable system. Many of the hydraulic hoses on the swing chassis have been replaced with hard lines that provide consistent routing, longer life and easier maintenance.

The new Genie GRC-12 Runabout Contractor is designed to withstand the rigors of tough indoor construction sites. The steel platform on the GRC-12 comes standard with a slide-out extension deck that gives operators an extra 17.5 inches of outreach. It is designed to be efficient in small spaces, with capacity for up to two workers and zero inside turning radius, and it is engineered with a steel platform and rails. The telescoping mast is encased in steel, giving it additional protection against worksite debris.

This unit also boasts a narrow 2 ft 5.5 inch width by 4 ft 5.75 inch length profile, allowing the unit to fit in most passenger elevators and to be driven through doorways with an operator onboard. Key serviceability features include a quick disconnect platform, large service doors to easily access maintenance components, and an easy to access mast hydraulic cylinder for efficient servicing.

Genie and Terex equipment is designed and engineered for serviceability and operator comfort. Common parts and components are used across the entire range enabling technicians to be familiar with service procedures when moving between different models and rental companies also benefit from stocking the same commonly used maintenance parts to use when needed, no matter what model requires servicing.
