Genie® GS™-1330m Scissor Lift Designed For Compact Manoeuvrability

Post Date: March 03, 2019

A new micro-sized addition to the eco-friendly Genie® product range.

Thanks to its power-efficient e-drive system that offers industry-leading runtime for full day productivity and cleaner operation, the new   Genie® GS™-1330m electric scissor lift provides rental and contractor customers the means of differentiating their business by adding more eco-responsible machines to their fleets. With environmental challenges in mind, this new “micro-sized” model responds to worldwide demand for productive, “green”, compact, low-level access solutions adapted to space and weight-restricted applications. 

“With the need to replace ladders with safe, productive and environment-friendly alternatives, low-level access is an activity sector that is growing in general, notably for industrial and institutional jobsite applications. Furthermore, rising demand for efficient solutions adapted to the constraints of low floor load and zero emissions sites implies the need for equipment that is sufficiently lightweight and respectful of the constraints of indoor jobsites,” says Zach Gilmor, EMEAR Genie Product Manager, Terex AWP. “Responding to the needs of customers working in today’s increasingly competitive, “green” aerial access market, the Genie GS-1330m scissor lift combines an efficient 100% electric drive system with the benefits of quiet, emission-free operation and industry-leading runtime in a compact package for productive, all day long performance. This increased runtime is especially important in applications that involve significant amounts of driving,” adds Gilmor.

Providing a maximum working height of 5.9 m (18 ft 8 in), the new Genie GS-1330m scissor lift offers   227 kg (500 lb) lift capacity to take two people on the platform, a machine weight of just 885 kg (1,950 lb) and incorporates the Genie® Smart Link™ control system that simplifies troubleshooting with easy-to-read and user-friendly onboard machine adjustments and diagnostics. The Genie Smart Link control system is compatible with the Genie® Tech Pro™ Link handheld diagnostics tool. 

Thanks to the efficiency of its DC E-drive system, the new Genie GS-1330 scissor lift combines the benefits of the power needed to work productively with quiet, zero-emissions operation as well as the benefits of longer battery life, low maintenance and industry-leading runtime on a single battery charge especially important in applications where there is significant amounts of driving. 

Ensuring full workday shift operation in a compact package adapted to indoors jobsites, as a result of its e-drive technology this new unit delivers more traction power than previous solutions. Making it faster and more responsive to work with, operators can work confidently knowing that there is no risk of damaging sensitive surfaces with leaking oil. 

Designed for exceptional jobsite accessibility and transportability, as well being drive enabled at full height and in stowed position, the new Genie GS-1330m scissor lift provides the ability to climb up to 25% graded slopes (14 degrees), at the same time as the advantage of climbing ramps easily for transport between rentals even when battery charge is low. They will also appreciate its driving efficiency notably on carpet flooring during maintenance work. 

Measuring just 1.4 m (4 ft 7 in) long and 0.78 m (30 ft 5 in) wide and weighing less than the standard service elevator capacity limitation of 1000 kg (2,205 lb), the Genie GS-1330m scissor lift is able to access jobsites previously off limits to heavier slab scissors and vertical mast lifts. Unlike other products equipped with casters, the Genie GS-1330m scissor lift features solid non-marking 25 cm (10”) tyres to combine the benefits of a ground clearance of 6 cm (2.4 in) with high-precision drive manoeuvrability adapted to sensitive surfaces..

Heavy-duty and rental-ready, this new micro-sized scissor lift is the perfect fit for low floor load and zero emissions applications among which hotels, supermarkets, theatres, gymnasiums, malls and institutional jobsite tasks. Other top applications include construction and facilities maintenance duties in space-restricted or congested locations such as offices, high-rise and retail areas.

Designed with operators in mind, the Genie GS-1330m scissor lift is equipped with side-by-side platform guardrails for easy 0.46 m (1.5 ft) deck extension offering an extended platform length of 1.72 m (5 ft 8 in). It is engineered with diamond plate platform flooring, which provides a durable, long-life gripping surface. And with the link stack centred under the platform, operators also benefit from a stable feel for optimal comfort while working at height.

In addition to sharing significant commonality with the Genie GS scissor lift family, the new Genie GS-1330m scissor lift includes design features that enhance serviceability. This micro-sized model notably offers the advantage of generously proportioned swing-out service trays equivalent to those used on large slab scissor lifts that allow for unobstructed access to all machine components, simplifying service and maintenance and ensuring that machines can get back on rent, faster. 

Produced in Changzhou, China, this new model is available EMEAR-wide.
