Genie debuts material carrier attachment for scissors
By Lindsey Anderson22 October 2018
Genie has debuted a material carrier attachment for its Genie GS-2669, GS-3369 and GS-4069 DC and RT scissor lifts.
Approved for use in ANSI and CSA markets, the new Genie Lift Tools Material Carrier attachment is designed to accommodate a range of materials and higher load capacities than a standard pipe cradle attachment, the company said. The 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, 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 multitude of 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 pounds (317 kg)
- Genie GS-3369 DC and RT models with a capacity up to 500 pounds (227 kg)
- Genie GS-4069 DC and RT models with a capacity up to 350 pounds (159 kg)
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 can be installed, or removed, in less than 20 minutes, the company said. It might be approved for further markets in the future.
