Genie to Launch High-Reach Electric Slab Scissor Lift at Bauma

Genie will debut its electric GS-4655 scissor lift at Bauma in Munich, set for April 8-14, 2019.

The eco-friendly model comes in a compact, lightweight package and is equipped with the latest generation of fully sealed AC electric drive motors. This new model will be available globally in Q3 2019.

The GS-4655 provides a maximum indoor working height of 52 ft., maximum outdoor working height of 34’6”, and horizontal outreach of 4 ft. with fully rolled-out deck extension. With its 770-lb. lift capacity for up to three people and their tools and materials, it also offers 25% gradeability and 14° breakover angle to climb steep ramps.

With its 4’7” chassis width and 7,800-lb. weight, it has been engineered for high access in restricted spaces. Key applications for this new model include narrow aisle warehouses, electrical installation and facilities maintenance tasks, as well as demanding tilt-up and heavy-duty construction jobsites.

“Thanks to its heavy-duty, fully sealed front-wheel AC electric drive motors, the new Genie GS-4655 scissor lift is designed with sustainability, productivity, and a low cost of ownership in mind,” said Zach Gilmor, Genie product manager, Terex AWP for the Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEAR) region. “Maximizing productivity, this model’s regenerative braking system also offers the benefit of industry-leading battery runtime per charge. And replacing traditional hydraulic drive motors with its new AC system, this model relies on less hydraulic service points reducing service time and costs for a cleaner and greener usage.”

Other features of the new Genie GS-4655 scissor lift include:

  • Side-by-side railings
  • Diamond plate platform flooring
  • Side forklift pockets in the chassis
  • Swing-out service trays
  • Centered link stack under the platform
  • Genie Smart Link control system
  • Compatibility with the Genie Tech Pro Link handheld diagnostic tool option
  • Proportional joystick lift and drive functionality
  • Commonality with the Genie GS scissor lifts and in design, parts and accessories
