Genie hybrid and electric work platforms

Genie will showcase its new generation of environment-friendly hybrid and electric work platforms, new additions to the Genie Xtra Capacity (XC) boom lift family and an upgraded model of the electric Genie GS4047 scissor lift. The company will also demonstrate its new Genie Lift Guard line of operator protective systems and new Genie Lift power generator.

Hybrid and electric models on show will include the ERA 20-m Genie Z-60/37 FE hybrid articulating boom lift, the 12-m Genie Z-33/18 electric articulating boom lift and the 11.89-m Genie GS-4047 electric slab scissor lift. Genie XC models on show will include the 41.15-m Genie SX-135 XC boom lift and the 13.86-m Genie Z-45 XC articulating booms lift.

The Genie Lift Guard contact alarm system is an electronic secondary guarding system, which in some circumstances can provide additional operator protection. Designed to immediately activate and alert ground personnel if an operator makes contact with the breakaway cable by means of a sound alarm and a flashing beacon, the Genie Lift Guard system is compatible with 2.4-m auxiliary top rails and new control box protection accessories. Installed standard from the factory on most new Genie articulated and telescopic boom lifts, it is also available as an aftermarket kit which can be retrofitted in less than 30 minutes.

The Genie Lift power generator features a dedicated hydraulic circuit, a right-sized breaker and no pressure switch to run the unit, and it allows the power to lift and drive during operation. The 3kW power system is available on Genie XC telescopic boom lifts and is convertible from the European 230/50 power system to the 110/50 UK system at the click of a switch. A new fall arrest bar enables workers to move around a greater working area while remaining connected to the platform. Other products  include the GTH-2506 compact telehandler and AWP personal lift and SLA materials lift.
