HRIA con­ven­tion ig­nites cus­tomer in­ter­est in four new Ge­nie prod­ucts

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

Since the HRIA Con­ven­tion in Ade­laide in April, lead­ing ac­cess equip­ment man­u­fac­turer Ge­nie has seen strong cus­tomer in­ter­est in the four prod­ucts it launched and promi­nently dis­played at the event.

On dis­play for the first time in Aus­tralia were the Ge­nie® Z™-33/18, Z™-62/40 boom lifts, the GS-69 BE scis­sor lift, and the GTH-2506 tele­han­dler, which all in­cor­po­rate the latest tech­nol­ogy.

The con­sid­er­able re­ac­tion to the Z-33/18 and Z-62/40 boom lifts, which are avail­able for sale in the third quar­ter of this year, trans­lated into im­me­di­ate cus­tomer or­ders at the con­ven­tion.

The high level of in­ter­est in the Ge­nie Z-33/18 boom lift was an­tic­i­pated, ac­cord­ing to Brad Lawrence, Gen­eral Man­ager, Terex AWP Aus­tralia, be­cause the com­pact, light­weight elec­tric boom lift of­fers ex­cep­tional cus­tomer ROI.

The Ge­nie Z-62/40 ar­tic­u­lat­ing boom lift is a com­pact and hard­work­ing unit that of­fers an out­stand­ing work­ing en­ve­lope, ver­ti­cal and hor­i­zon­tal reach, ma­noeu­vra­bil­ity, and ease of use and ser­vic­ing. Lawrence said, “The Ge­nie Z-62/40 will help re­duce rental com­pa­nies’ in­ven­tory costs, be­cause pre­vi­ously they would have needed to pur­chase a sig­nif­i­cantly larger and more ex­pen­sive ma­chine to achieve the ex­tended reach and ca­pa­bil­i­ties of this new model.”

“We were also very pleased with the ex­tent of the cus­tomer in­ter­est in the GS-69 BE scis­sor lift, that is avail­able now and the GTH-2506 tele­han­dler that will hit the mar­ket in Q1 2016. In­deed or­ders are al­ready f low­ing in for these ma­chines,” said Lawrence.

The Ge­nie GS-69 BE is the first Ge­nie rough-ter­rain high­per­for­mance scis­sor lift with elec­tric power and an on­board diesel en­gine to recharge the bat­ter­ies. The “BE” in its name stands for “bi-energy.”

“This unique mo­tive sys­tem en­ables the GS-69 BE lift to com­mence work out­side on a green­fields site and recharge us­ing the diesel en­gine, then move in­side in DC elec­tric mode, pro­duc­ing no emis­sions or en­gine noise, once the build­ing is con­structed,” said Lawrence.

“No longer do op­er­a­tors have to change ma­chines — and end a con­tract with an equip­ment hire com­pany — when the job moves from out­side to in­side stages. With this ma­chine, it’s a case of be­ing the ‘first on, last off’ the job­site.”

Light­weight and com­pact, the Ge­nie GTH-2506 tele­han­dler is sim­ple to trans­port to the job­site and easy to ma­noeu­vre once it’s there.

“The Ge­nie GTH-2506 is ideal for out­side work as well as jobs con­ducted in­side mul­ti­level carparks and build­ings where no other tele­han­dler can go,” said Lawrence.
