Terex-owned powered access equipment maker Genie has introduced a new electric scissor lift, the Genie GS-1330m, which comes with a power efficient e-drive system and allows users and rental outfits to add more eco-responsible machines to their fleets.
Introducing the GS-1330m, Genie said the new machine offers industry-leading runtime for full day productivity and cleaner operation, enabling customers to differentiate their business. With environmental challenges in mind, this new “micro-sized” model responds to worldwide demand for productive, green, compact, low-level access solutions adapted to space and weight-restricted applications, the manufacturer said.
Zach Gilmor, EMEAR Genie product manager, Terex AWP, said: “With the need to replace ladders with safe, productive and environment-friendly alternatives, low-level access is an activity sector that is growing in general, notably for industrial and institutional jobsite applications. Furthermore, rising demand for efficient solutions adapted to the constraints of low floor load and zero emissions sites implies the need for equipment that is sufficiently lightweight and respectful of the constraints of indoor jobsites.
“Responding to the needs of customers working in today’s increasingly competitive, ‘green’ aerial access market, the Genie GS-1330m scissor lift combines an efficient 100% electric drive system with the benefits of quiet, emission-free operation and industry-leading runtime in a compact package for productive, all-day-long performance. This increased runtime is especially important in applications that involve significant amounts of driving.”
Providing a maximum working height of 5.9m, the new Genie GS-1330m scissor lift offers a 227kg lift capacity to take two people on the platform, a machine weight of 885kg and incorporates the Genie Smart Link control system that simplifies troubleshooting with easy-to-read and user-friendly onboard machine adjustments and diagnostics. The Genie Smart Link control system is compatible with the Genie Tech Pro Link handheld diagnostics tool.
Genie added that with the efficiency of its DC E-drive system, the GS-1330 scissor lift combines the benefits of the power needed to work productively with quiet, zero-emissions operation as well as the benefits of longer battery life, low maintenance and industry-leading runtime on a single battery charge especially important in applications where there is significant amounts of driving.
The GS-1330m provides the ability to climb up to 25% graded slopes (14 degrees), at the same time as the advantage of climbing ramps easily for transport between rentals even when battery charge is low.
Measuring 1.4m long and 0.78m wide and weighing less than the standard service elevator capacity limitation of 1000kg, the Genie GS-1330m is able to access jobsites previously off limits to heavier slab scissors and vertical mast lifts, the manufacturer adds.
The model has solid non-marking 25cm tyres to combine the benefits of a ground clearance of 6cm with high-precision drive manoeuvrability adapted to sensitive surfaces. The GS-1330m also has side-by-side platform guardrails for easy 0.46m deck extension offering an extended platform length of 1.72m.
For ease of access to machine components to aid serviceability, the new model swing-out service trays equivalent to those used on large slab scissor lifts that simplify service and maintenance to increase uptime.
