Terex AWP debut its new rough-terrain scissor lift family at The Rental Show.

Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP) is introducing new Genie aerial work platform products at The Rental Show (Feb. 28-March 2) and ConExpo (March 22-26), both in Las Vegas.

Terex AWP will first showcase the Genie GS-4069RT rough-terrain scissor lift at The Rental Show. The GS-4069RT has the same style of oscillating axles as the RT90, which adds to its performance, the company said. The GS-4069RT is one model of an entire new family of scissors from Terex AWP, including the 2669RT, 3369RT and 4069RT.

The units have increased horsepower by up to 30 percent, a simplified line stack and a more durable chassis. "The new design enables the machine to drive and function at full height," the company said. The units are available in 26-foot, 33-foot and 40-foot applications. The 4069RT will also be on stand at ConExpo.

Terex AWP will also feature its new GR-20J and GR-26J self-propelled vertical masts with jibs at ConExpo. These units were first introduced in Europe.

The units have a lifting capacity of 440 pounds, up-and-over clearance of 13 feet, 10 inches and 21 feet, 10 inches, a maximum working height of 25 feet and 32 feet, and a maximum horizontal reach of 10 feet, 7 inches and 10 feet, 3 inches respectively.

The jib's range of motion is 140 degrees and both units have hydraulic turntable rotation. The GR-26J will be on display at The Rental Show, as well.
