Genie® Lift Tools™ Material Carrier attachment
October 11, 2018 - Approved for use in ANSI (United States) and CSA (Canada) markets, the new Genie® Lift Tools™ Material Carrier attachment offers Genie GS™-2669, GS-3369 and GS-4069 DC and RT rough terrain scissor lift operators a solution to efficiently carry materials to job sites.
Designed to accommodate a wide range of materials and higher load capacities than a standard pipe cradle attachment, this new Genie accessory is ideal for use in applications that require lifting materials to height, such as tilt-up construction, post-frame building construction, fire suppression installation, HVAC installation, rooftop contracting and facility maintenance.
“The Genie Lift Tools Material Carrier attachment is designed with operators and real-world applications in mind,” says Mike Flanagan, Genie Product Manager, Terex AWP. “Rough terrain scissors are employed in an increasingly wide range of applications, and with the platform size and capacity to bring multiple occupants and their supplies, we want to make sure that operators can safely and securely transport materials in the platform to the job site”
The large carriage and high capacity of the Genie Lift Tools Material Carrier attachment is suitable for a multitude of material types, including lumber, pipe, HVAC materials, siding and plate material. It is approved for use on:
• Genie GS-2669 DC and RT models with a capacity up to 700 lb (317 kg)
• Genie GS-3369 DC and RT models with a capacity up to 500 lb (227 kg)
• Genie GS-4069 DC and RT models with a capacity up to 350 lb (159 kg)
Other benefits of the Genie Lift Tools Material Carrier attachment are that it can accommodate more than one pipe, can be positioned on the scissor lift’s main platform or extension deck, can still be used with the extension deck retracted and can be installed laterally or longitudinally.
Available in North America, the Genie Lift Tools Material Carrier attachment is a factory-approved option and is available as an aftermarket part, kit #1288239GT. It can be installed or removed, in less than 20 minutes.
This accessory may be evaluated for use in select areas of Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Russia (EMEAR) in the future, pending CE certification and country-specific regulations approval.
