GENIE will display its new electric scissor lift series at the Hire and Rental Industry Association Convention in Adelaide on April 29-30.

The 69-inch bi-energy hybrid rough terrain, electric scissor lift series – described by Genie as the next evolution of the current RT and DC models – is said to offer exceptional jobsite versatility.

“They are the first rough terrain, high performance electric scissor lifts with an onboard integrated generator to charge the batteries and supply power to the platform and chassis,” Genie said.

Genie said its new GS-2669, GS-3369 and GS-4069 BE hybrid scissor lifts will be available in the Australian and New Zealand markets later in the first quarter 2015.

Terex Aerial Work Platforms general manager Brad Lawrence said the Genie hybrid scissor lift provided users with a “true start-to-finish machine”.

“In the early stages of construction, the scissor keeps itself charged and can supply 240 V AC power when onsite power is not available,” Mr Lawrence said

“As the jobsite progresses it can switch to hybrid or electric to meet rough terrain or indoor slab environments. This type of versatility ultimately leads to higher utilisation for rental companies.”

The series is available in 7.7 metre, 9.75 metre and 12.12 metre models, with all three featuring a 1.52 metre slide-out deck.
