Genie Releases New Scissor Lift for the Aviation Industry
Genie, Redmond, Wash., is introducing its new Genie GS-2646 AV scissor lift at the Cygnus Aviation Expo in Las Vegas, Nev., March 7-9, 2012. The scissor lift offers a working height of 32 feet (9.92 m) and a drive height of 26 feet (7.92 m). The width of the scissor with the Padded Aircraft Protection Rail (PAR) is 4’8” (1.42 m). The scissor lift has an inside turning radius of zero and a lift capacity of 900 pounds (340 kg).
Targeted for aircraft maintenance and manufacturing applications, the Genie GS-2646 AV scissor lift offers a smooth, powered extension deck option that provides an extra 5 feet of reach. The PAR system cushions the platform railings, providing an extra level of protection. Gates at both ends of the platform provide easy access for operators. The platform extension deck and gates are interlocked, preventing the machine from being operated while the deck is extended or while the gates are open.
A thick platform deck provides a slip resistant surface for operator comfort. A “flight line” option also provides a higher maximum wind speed rating of up to 35 mph. The new Genie SmartLink control system provides onboard diagnostics that enable software updates to be implemented remotely or while connected to a laptop.
The Genie GS-2646 AV will be available in all ANSI markets with production beginning in mid- second quarter.
