Genie's DC units may be ideal choices for optimal suitability within industrial work sites, particularly when low noise and zero-emissions are required. Genie bi-energy, hybrid systems are available for applications where the machines are required to drive long-distances. These models combine the best of both worlds, using the flexibility of diesel-powered generators and the positives of a 48V DC machinery.
To charge the DC battery and to provide the operator with long battery life between charges, Genie DC models have systems on-board. There is also a 30 amp universal smart charger system utilized to charge overnight or between shifts. The smart charger system would automatically convert to the AC voltage frequency and input. In order to save unnecessary power usage which will cost your business this charging system will automatically shut down once the battery pack has reached full charge. Genie DC models provide proportional lift and drive controls that help the operator to use smooth and accurate movements and regulate the speed of every function. This ensures accurate positioning with each 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 to 139 degrees vertically, depending on the model utilized. Working heights vary from 12.52 meters to 15.94 meters, that depends on the unit. Genie DC lifts are stable when rotating the turntable in tight spaces. Because of lack of tailswing, repositioning of the lift while rotating the turntable is not required. Over and up reach on these types of machinery is great for working in small spaces and the compact model size is ideal for when lighter weight machinery are needed.
For all-day, long-lasting performance for tough jobs, Genie machinery are easily maneuverable and quick with the smooth ride of pneumatic tires and no tailswing. Air-filled and non-marking foam tires help to increase the advantages within industrial settings.
