The unmatched versatility of the latest Genie® 69BE scissorlift will make its first EMEAR appearance at the APEX show in Amsterdam from the 24th to 26th June, on stand 350 and 450.
The Genie Bi-Energy 69 models (two operating modes) are the next evolution of the current Genie 69 RT and DC scissor lift series. Offering exceptional jobsite versatility, they are high performance electric scissor lifts with an onboard integrated generator to charge the batteries and supply power to the platform and chassis. They are equipped with active front oscillating axle to improve terrainability. The new Genie GS-2669, GS-3369 and GS-4069 BE hybrid scissor lifts will be available in EMEAR second quarter 2014.
"The new Genie hybrid scissor lift is a best in-class series that provides users with a true ‘start to finish’ machine," said Mark Powell, Scissors Product Manager, Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP). "In the early stages of construction, the scissor keeps itself charged and can supply full AC power when onsite power is not available. As the jobsite progresses it can switch to hybrid or electric to meet rough terrain or indoor slab environments. This type of versatility ultimately leads to higher utilization
for rental companies."
The series’ AC sealed electric drive motors provide full performance in both operating modes. "Compared to DC motors, these AC motors contain fewer parts, lower maintenance due to a brushless design," said Powell. "They run cooler and cleaner which translates to longer life and high reliability for internal parts such as wiring, brakes and bearings."
HEIGHT AND CAPACITY
The new bi-energy hybrid scissor lift series is available in 9.70 m (31 ft 9 in), 11.75 m (38 ft 6 in) and 14.12 m (46 ft 3in) working heights. All units provide the ability to drive at full height for jobsite efficiency and uptime. Non-marking foamfilled rough terrain tires provide the versatility needed to start the job on rough terrain and finish on indoor slab surfaces. A front active oscillating axle helps keep all four wheels on the ground during operation providing the operator with more machine control and power. It automatically senses the terrain and adjusts the axle position based on ground conditions, regardless of whether the scissor is elevated.
A 1.52 m (5 ft) slide out deck on all three models provides plenty of room to get the job done. Indoor, these new models permit to 4 operators and their tools (3 person platform occupancy indoor for the GS-4069 BE) to accomplish what they set out to do.
As the name implies, the BE scissor lift series features two operating modes. This selectable feature meets the needs of both outdoor jobsites with no onsite power, and indoor jobsites with sensitive noise and emission environments. When the power management hybrid operation is selected, the system automates the charging function of the integrated generator, maintaining the battery charge and allowing the operator to focus on getting the job done. All models are also equipped with an onboard charger for wall power charging. A standard feature supplies 220 V, 2.1 kW power from the integrated generator to the platform and chassis. Operator can power additional tools from the scissor without needing onsite power.
CLEAN ELECTRIC ROUGH TERRAIN PERFORMANCE
"Diesel deliveries on jobsites are costly. Using electric bi-energy scissor lifts can provide huge savings; especially those that stay on the jobsite from start to finish. This can be significant for jobs that last up to a year. It’s simply a great product for the rental market," said Powell. Users are able to charge the BE-series scissor lifts anytime to be ready to go during working hours. "They run cooler and cleaner which translates to longer life and high reliability for internal parts such as wiring, brakes and bearings."
COMMONALTIY AND EASY TO SERVICE
The simplified 3-4-5 link stack design provides commonality across the entire range to help simplify parts-stocking for fleet owners. The Genie GS-2669 BE provides an unmatched lift capacity of 680 kg (1500 lbs) to provide operators with the ability to lift more with greater efficiency.
