“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.”

Other features of the new Genie GS-4655 scissor lift include: Side-by-side railings for easy deck extension and retraction; Diamond plate platform flooring; Side forklift pockets in the chassis; Swing-out service trays for unobstructed access to all machine components; Centered link stack under the platform; Genie Smart Link control system; Genie Tech Pro compatibility; Proportional joystick lift and drive functionality and; Commonality with the Genie GS scissor lifts and in design, parts and accessories, as well as serviceability benefits to reduce service costs and storage space.
