Genie's DC units could be ideal options for optimal suitability within industrial work locations, especially when low noise and zero-emissions are needed. Genie hybrid, bi-energy systems are available for applications where the machinery are needed to drive long-distances. These units combine the best of both worlds, utilizing the positives of a 48V DC equipment and the flexibility of diesel-powered generators.
Genie DC models have systems on-board to charge the battery and offer the operator with long battery life between charges. When being charged overnight or between shifts, there is a 30 amp universal smart charger system that will automatically convert to the AC voltage input and frequency. In order to save unnecessary power usage that will cost your company this charging system will automatically shut down when the battery pack has reached full charge. Genie DC models offer proportional drive and lift controls that help the operator to utilize smooth and accurate movements and regulate the speed of each and every function. This ensures precise positioning with every lift. On non-jib units, the self-levelling platform rotates to 90 in either direction. For jib models, the jib can rotate 80 degrees in either direction as well as 135 five degrees to 139 degrees vertically, which depends on the model used. Working heights range from 12.52 meters to 15.94 meters, which depends on the unit. Genie DC lifts are stable when rotating the turntable in tight spaces. Due to lack of tailswing, lift repositioning whilst rotating the turntable is not necessary. Up and over reach on these machines is great for working in small spaces and the compact unit size is perfect for when lighter weight equipment are required.
Genie models are quite quick and easy to maneuver with no tailswing and a smooth ride on its pneumatic tires to produce long-lasting performance on tough jobs. Air-filled and non-marking foam tires help to increase the advantages in industrial settings.
