REDMOND, WA - Genie is launching a new series of 69-inch wide rough terrain scissor lifts. 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 job-site performance, the company stated.

The new GS-4069 is the world’s first 40 ft. full drive-height rough terrain scissor lift in its class. Providing end user uptime while on the jobsite, the 26-ft. and 33-ft. models are also equipped with the full drive-height feature.
An increased platform work space of 13 percent gives end users more room to get their jobs done. The GS-2669 RT features 20-percent greater lifting capacity, from 1,250 lbs. to 1,500 lbs., provides the end user with more lifting capability. The GS-3369 RT has a lifting capacity of 1,000 lbs.; the GS-4069 RT has a lifting capacity of 800 lbs.
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. The company said this model also offers a 30-percent increase in horsepower from dual fuel engines, which will enable the machines to drive through sand, snow, mud, and uneven terrain. The company added wheel drives and high-efficiency piston motors 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, Genie stated.
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.
