Genie's DC units may be perfect options for optimal suitability within industrial work sites, specially 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, using the positives of a 48V DC machinery 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 which will automatically convert to the AC voltage frequency and input. In order to save unnecessary power usage that will cost your company this charging system will shut down automatically once the battery pack has reached full charge. Genie DC models offer proportional drive and lift controls which help the user to utilize precise and smooth movements and regulate the speed of every function. This ensures accurate positioning with each lift. On non-jib models, the self-levelling platform rotates to 90 in either direction. For jib models, the jib can rotate 80 in either direction as well as 135 to 139 vertically, which depends on the unit utilized. Working heights range from 12.52 meters to 15.94 meters, that depends on the unit. Genie DC lifts are stable when rotating the turntable in confined areas. Because of lack of tailswing, repositioning of the lift whilst rotating the turntable is not necessary. Up and over reach on these machines is great for working in small spaces and the compact model size is perfect for when lighter weight machinery are required.
For long-lasting, all-day performance for tough jobs, Genie equipment 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 benefits within industrial settings.
