REDMOND, WASH. (February 28, 2011) Genie is launching a new series of 69 inch wide rough terrain scissor lifts introduced at The Rental Show in Las Vegas. The three new models (GS™-2669 RT, GS™-3369 RT and GS™-4069 RT) are a significant redesign of the 68 inch series through increased capacity and improved jobsite performance. The new 40 ft model introduction is the only one of its kind in the market. The scissors may be viewed at booth number 4262, February 28th – March 2nd.
“In the competitive rental industry, our customers need equipment that will be in high demand by jobsite personnel for uses such as commercial construction and infrastructure improvements,” said Jeff Weido, senior product manager, Terex Aerial Work Platforms. “Customers can be confident in the quality of our new RT scissors series. The products address today’s most intensive jobsite demands while offering excellent value and simplified service access.”
The new GS™-4069 is the world’s first 40 ft full drive-height rough terrain scissor lift in its class. “This is a tremendous addition to our scissor line,” said Weido. “This product will enable end users to dominate the jobsite with increased productivity and efficiency.” Providing end user uptime while on the jobsite, the 26 ft and 33 ft models are also equipped with the full drive-height feature.

An increased platform work space of 13 percent gives end users more room to get their jobs done more efficiently. Increased lifting capacity on the GS™-2669 RT of 20 percent, from 1250 lbs to 1500 lbs, provides the end user with more lifting capability. The GS™-3369 RT has a lifting capacity of 1000 lbs; the GS™-4069 RT has a lifting capacity of 800 lbs.
A standard front active-oscillating axle keeps all four wheels on the ground during operation, providing the end user with more machine control and power when climbing hills and jobsite obstacles. Up to a 30 percent increase in horsepower from dual fuel engines will enable the machines to drive through sand, snow, mud and uneven terrain with ease.
Wheel drives and high efficiency piston motors were added to get more torque to the rear wheels, providing jobsite performance similar to the large Genie® boom products.
The new Genie® Rough Terrain Scissor Series will be available in ANSI markets beginning in the second quarter of 2011, and in CE markets in the third quarter.
