Genie’s new series of 69 in. (175 cm) wide rough terrain scissor lifts — GS-2669 RT, GS-3369 RT and GS-4069 RT — are a significant redesign of the 68 in. (172 cm) series through increased capacity and improved job site performance, according to the manufacturer.

“In the competitive rental industry, our customers need equipment that will be in high demand by job site personnel for uses such as commercial construction and infrastructure improvements,” said Jeff Weido, senior product manager, Terex Aerial Work Platforms. “Customers can be confident in the quality of our new RT scissors series. The products address today’s most intensive job site demands while offering excellent value and simplified service access.”

The new GS-4069 is the world’s first 40 ft. (12 m) full drive-height rough terrain scissor lift in its class.

“This is a tremendous addition to our scissor line,” said Weido. “This product will enable end users to dominate the job site with increased productivity and efficiency.”

Providing end user uptime while on the job site, the 26 and 33 ft. (7.9 and 10 m) models also are 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 more efficiently. Increased lifting capacity on the GS-2669 RT of 20 percent, from 1,250 to 1,500 lbs. (567 to 680 kg), provides the end user with more lifting capability. The GS-3369 RT has a lifting capacity of 1,000 lbs. (453 kg); the GS-4069 RT has a lifting capacity of 800 lbs. (362.8 kg).

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 job site obstacles. Up to a 30 percent increase in horsepower from dual fuel engines will enable the machines to drive through sand, snow, mud and uneven terrain with ease, according to the manufacturer.

Wheel drives and high efficiency piston motors were added to get more torque to the rear wheels, providing job site performance similar to the large Genie boom products.

Full swing-out doors provide easier service access to electronics, manifolds, hydraulics and engine.

The 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.
