The new Genie GS-4655 provides a maximum indoor working height of 16.02 m (52 feet), maximum outdoor working height of 10.70 m (34 feet, 6 inches), a class-leading horizontal outreach of 1.22 m (4 feet) with fully rolled-out deck extension, as well as 25% gradeability and 14-degree breakover angle to climb steep ramps and make transport easier. The GS-4655 scissor lift offers a 350 kg (770 pound) lift capacity for up to three people and their tools and materials.
The unit has a 1.40 m (4 foot, 7 inch) chassis width, weighs 3,538 kg (7,800 pounds) and is engineered for high access in restricted spaces. The Genie GS-4655 scissor lift features the latest generation of AC electric drive motors for excellent indoor and outdoor efficiency, the company says.
“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. We engineered this model to deliver the height and emissions-free power to work indoors and out, even in harsh outdoor jobsite conditions,” said Zach Gilmor, Genie product manager, Terex AWP for the Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEAR.)
He continued: “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.”
