Genie lifts UK rental company

25 March 2008

A Genie Gth 3512 is helping UK rental company sangwin plant hire cope with demand for low level lifting duties in the northeast of the country. Sangwin's crane manager, Andrew Fenton told CE, “The machine is very robust, has a powerful 60 kW Deutz turbo-diesel engine, and a maximum lift height of 12,1 m. Its forward reach of 8,43 m and the ability to lift up to 3,5 tonnes made it an attractive option.”

Designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind, its low pivot boom provides good visibility, while the hydraulically actuated independent front stabilisers and 430 mm of ground clearance make it ideal for operation on rough terrain. Featuring three steering modes (front wheel steer, crab steer and coordinated steer) the hydrostatic drive allows smooth and precise positioning and the hydraulically piloted proportional joystick provides multi-function operation.
