March 3, 2011 – Genie introduced a new series of 69-inch wide rough terrain scissor lifts at The Rental Show in Las Vegas. The three new models (GS-2669 RT, GS-3369 RT and GS-4069 RT) are a significant redesign of the 68-inch series through increased capacity and improved jobsite performance. The new 40-foot model introduction is the only one of its kind in the market.
The new GS-4069 is the world’s first 40-foot full drive-height rough terrain scissor lift in its class. Providing end user uptime while on the jobsite, the 26-feet and 33-feet models are also equipped with the full drive-height feature.
An increased platform workspace of 13 per cent gives end users more room to get their jobs done more efficiently. Increased lifting capacity on the GS-2669 RT of 20 per cent, from 1250 pounds to 1500 pounds, provides the end user with more lifting capability. The GS-3369 RT has a lifting capacity of 1000 pounds; the GS-4069 RT has a lifting capacity of 800 pounds.
A standard front active-oscillating axle keeps all four wheels on the ground during operation, providing the end user with more machine control and power when climbing hills and jobsite obstacles. Up to a 30 per cent increase in horsepower from dual fuel engines will enable the machines to drive through sand, snow, mud and uneven terrain with ease.
Wheel drives and high efficiency piston motors were added to get more torque to the rear wheels, providing jobsite performance similar to the large Genie boom products.
Full swing-out doors provide easier service access to electronics, manifolds, hydraulics and engine.
The new Genie Rough Terrain Scissor Series will be available in ANSI markets beginning in the second quarter of 2011, and in CE markets in the third quarter.
