New scissor lift from Genie
Hire19 will display the new Genie GS-1330m scissor lift in Melbourne 22-23 May in 2019. The Genie GS-1330m has compact maneuverability in low-level access and spaces and is suitable for construction applications in offices, high rise and retail areas, and facility maintenance tasks.
Heavy-duty and rental-ready, this new micro-sized scissor lift is suitable for construction applications in restricted or congested areas like offices, high rise and retail spaces. It also works well with facility maintenance tasks, according to Genie national sales manager at Terex AWP Australia, Kurt Kinder.
The Genie GS-1330m scissor lift offers a maximum platform height of 3.75m”) and a maximum working height of 5.75m, with a 2-person, 227kg capacity, and weighs in at only 885kg.
“Low-level access is a growing segment in the aerial access industry, with increasing pressure to replace ladders with safe, productive alternatives including applications beyond the typical job site, such as industrial and institutional facilities. Additionally, the growing need for productive solutions in low-floor loading applications is driving innovation in lightweight product segments. The new Genie GS-1330m scissor lift is specifically designed to meet the needs of our customers in the ever-changing mobile elevated work platform market,” Kurt says.
The Genie GS-1330m scissor lift has an efficient, all-electric DC drive system that offers productive power for getting around indoor job sites with a quiet, zero-emissions operation. With the Genie GS-1330m scissor lift, operators can drive at full height, and in the stowed position, while the scissor lift can climb up to 25% graded slopes, which delivers job site accessibility.
“As the Genie GS-1330m scissor lift weighs less than 907kg, it can access job sites previously off-limits to heavier slab scissors and vertical mast lifts,” says Kurt.
“The Genie GS-1330m scissor lift is equipped with platform load sense,” Kurt adds, “which will help operators understand when they have overloaded the platform.”
Designed with the operator in mind, the Genie GS-1330m scissor lift has side-by-side platform guard rails for easy deck extension and retraction. It’s engineered with diamond-plate platform flooring that provides a durable, long-life gripping surface. With the link stack under the platform, the operator has a stable feel and optimal comfort while working at height.
