Responding to worldwide demand for compact maneuverability in low-level access and space and weight restricted applications, the new Genie GS-1330m scissor lift offers a maximum platform height of 12.8 ft and a maximum working height of 18.8 ft, with a 2-person, 500-lb capacity, and weighing in at only 1,950 lbs. Rental-ready, this new micro-sized scissor lift is well suited for construction applications in space restricted or congested locations, such as offices, high rise and retail spaces, as well as facility maintenance tasks.
“Low-level access is a growing segment in the aerial access industry, with increasing pressure to replace ladders with safe, productive alternatives,” says Mike Flanagan, Genie product manager, Terex AWP. “The low-level access segment is poised to replace ladders in applications beyond the typical jobsite, including in industrial and institutional facilities. Additionally, the growing need for productive solutions in low floor loading applications is driving innovation in lightweight product segments. The new Genie GS-1330m scissor lift is specifically designed to meet the needs of our customers in the ever-changing global mobile aerial work platform market.”
The Genie GS-1330m scissor lift is equipped with an efficient, all-electric DC drive system that offers productive power for getting around indoor jobsites with quiet, zero-emissions operation. Industry-leading runtime ensures full day productivity in a compact package. The Genie GS-1330m scissor lift enables, operators to drive at full height, and is capable of climbing up to 25% grade slopes in the stowed position for exceptional jobsite accessibility and transportability.
“Weighing less than 2,000 lbs, the Genie GS-1330m scissor lift is able to access jobsites previously off limits to heavier slab scissors and vertical mast lifts in the industry due to passenger elevator capacity limitations,” says Flanagan.
“At Genie, we build high quality and productive machines that offer high rental return on invested capital (rROIC) to customers worldwide and meet regional and global standards,” says Flanagan. “To be in compliance with the upcoming changes to ANSI and CSA standards in North America, as well as to adhere to ISO standards globally, the Genie GS-1330m scissor lift is equipped with new features, such as platform load sense, which will help operators understand when they have overloaded the platform.” According to Flanagan, a number of other changes will be also incorporated across the entire Genie GS slab scissor family to adhere to new global standards, including the addition of toeboards on all entrances and standard swing gates on the platforms.
Reliable Design, Productive Operation
The Genie GS-1330m scissor lift incorporates the Genie Smart Link control system, offering a familiar interface, as well as fully proportional lift and drive control for precise positioning in the work environment. “The Genie Smart Link control system simplifies troubleshooting with onboard easy to read and user-friendly machine adjustments and diagnostics, and it is compatible with the Genie Tech Pro Link handheld diagnostic tool,” adds Flanagan.
Designed with the operator in mind, the Genie GS-1330m scissor lift is equipped with side-by-side platform guardrails for easy deck extension and retraction. It is engineered with diamond plate platform flooring, which provides a durable, long-life gripping surface. And with the link stack centered under the platform, the operator is provided with a stable feel and optimal comfort while working at height.
Service and Support
“The new Genie GS-1330m scissor lift shares significant commonality with the Genie GS scissor lift family, including design features that enhance serviceability. For example, swing-out service trays allow for unobstructed access to all machine components, including the hydraulic and electrical systems, simplifying service and maintenance and ensuring machines can get back on rent, faster,” finishes Flanagan.
