Genie's DC units can be perfect choices for optimal suitability in industrial work locations, specially when zero-emissions and low noise are required. Genie bi-energy, hybrid systems are available for applications where the equipment have to drive long-distances. These models combine the best of both worlds, making use of the positives of a 48V DC equipment and the flexibility of diesel-powered generators.
Genie DC units have systems on-board to charge the battery and provide 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 would automatically convert to the AC voltage input and frequency. To save unnecessary power usage which will cost your company this charging system will shut down automatically when the battery pack has reached full charge. Genie DC units offer proportional drive and lift controls that help the user to use precise and smooth movements and regulate the speed of each function. This ensures precise positioning with each and every lift. On non-jib units, the self-levelling platform rotates to 90 degrees in either direction. For jib units, the jib can rotate 80 degrees in either direction as well as 135 five degrees to 139 vertically, which depends on the unit used. Working heights vary from 12.52 meters to 15.94 meters, that depends on the model. Genie DC lifts are stable when rotating the turntable in confined spaces. Because of lack of tailswing, repositioning of the lift whilst rotating the turntable is not necessary. Over and up reach on these types of machinery is great for working in small spaces and the compact unit size is ideal for when lighter weight equipment are needed.
Genie units are fairly quick and easy to maneuver with a smooth ride on its pneumatic tires and no tailswing to produce long-lasting performance on tough jobs. Air-filled and non-marking foam tires help to increase the benefits within industrial environment.
