Terex releases new Genie GS-4047 electric scissor lift
The new Genie GS-4047 electric scissor lift is designed to meet the demands of tightly packed, high rise indoor spaces.

The new 11.75m Genie GS-4047 has a lifting capacity of 350kg and a working height of 13.70m plus a platform height of 11.70m.

"With dual front-wheel drive and zero inside turning radius, combined with a compact footprint of just 2.44m long and 1.19m wide stowed, the GS-4047 is ideal for manoeuvring around tight restrictive work environments," says David Greene, Genie's Regional Sales Manager for VIC and TAS.

The model comes with a 91 cm extension deck which Terex says will give workers plenty of workspace.

Terex claims the new scissor lift has a travel speed of 3.1km/h and is able to handle a 25% gradient to get up slopes and loading ramps.

The company says a new 24V 300 Ah battery pack powering the lift offers more strength for elevation and enables the operator to storm through full eight hour working shifts.

"The GS-4047 incorporates the new Smartlink control system that offers the operator the choice of two lift speeds based on the work environment and the application," says Greene.

Terex says the Smartlink system used in Genie's lifting equipment allows for troubleshooting with new grouped fault codes, easier battery detection and user-friendly machine adjustments.

A joystick installed in the lift is used for drive and steer only, thus allowing for simpler operation.

The machine is equipped with a four-wheel braking system that combines dual rear spring hydraulically-released brakes with dual front wheel hydraulic dynamic braking. The brakes are fully enclosed in steel for protection against worksite debris and machine wear, thus prolonging the machine's life cycle.

Heavy-duty steel swing-out service trays allow for access to all machine components for easy service and maintenance. Terex says 90 per cent of the components are common across the Genie slab scissors family, therefore allowing service departments to stock fewer parts and technicians to apply existing maintenance knowledge.
