Genie Introduces Material Carrier Attachment for RT Scissor Lifts

Genie is offering the Lift Tools Material Carrier attachment designed for Genie GS-2669, GS-3369 and GS-4069 DC and RT rough terrain scissor lift.

Approved for use in ANSI (United States) and CSA (Canada) markets, the new attachment provides operators a solution to efficiently carry materials to jobsites. Designed to accommodate a wide range of materials and higher load capacities than a standard pipe cradle attachment, this new Genie accessory is ideal for use in applications that require lifting materials to height, such as tilt-up construction, post-frame building construction, fire suppression installation, HVAC installation, rooftop contracting, and facility maintenance.
 
“The Genie Lift Tools Material Carrier attachment is designed with operators and real-world applications in mind,” said Mike Flanagan, Genie product manager for Terex AWP. “Rough terrain scissors are employed in an increasingly wide range of applications, and with the platform size and capacity to bring multiple occupants and their supplies, we want to make sure that operators can safely and securely transport materials in the platform to the jobsite.”
 
The large carriage and high capacity of the Genie Lift Tools Material Carrier attachment is suitable for many material types, including lumber, pipe, HVAC materials, siding, and plate material. It is approved for use on:

• Genie GS-2669 DC and RT models with a capacity up to 700 lbs. 
• Genie GS-3369 DC and RT models with a capacity up to 500 lbs. 
• Genie GS-4069 DC and RT models with a capacity up to 350 lbs.
 
Other benefits of the Genie Lift Tools Material Carrier attachment are that it can accommodate more than one pipe; can be positioned on the scissor lift’s main platform or extension deck; can still be used with the extension deck retracted; and can be installed laterally or longitudinally.
 
Available in North America, the Genie Lift Tools Material Carrier attachment is a factory-approved option and is available as an aftermarket part, kit #1288239GT. It can be installed or removed in less than 20 minutes.
 
This accessory may be evaluated for use in select areas of Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Russia (EMEAR) in the future, pending CE certification and country-specific regulations approval.
