Genie Runabout for North America

30 October 2012

The new Genie GR-26J Runabout self-propelled vertical mast with jib has been introduced to the American national Standards Institute (ANSI) and CSA markets.

This unit is the latest in the Genie vertical lift family and is suitable for locations where outreach is required in a confined space. “The Genie GR-26J brings new outreach capability to our best-selling Runabout product line with a class-leading lightweight design,” said Chad Hislop, Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP) product manager. “The rotating turntable combined with an outreaching jib allows operators to easily get up and over obstacles to access areas that were previously out of reach.”

The unit offers an up-and-over maximum clearance of 21 feet, 10.5 inches, a maximum working height of 31 feet, 9 inches and a maximum working horizontal reach of 10 feet, 1 inch. A 140° jib range and 350° non-continuous hydraulic turntable rotation enable the unit to deliver precise positioning of loads, Terex said.

Offering the lowest weight in its class of 6,250 pounds, the GR-26J is particularly useful where floor loading may be a concern, added the company. The electric drive motors make for smooth operation at high and low speeds. In addition, the Genie GR-26J also features 25% gradeability and a full height drive function for two occupants, both indoor and outdoor.
