By On-Site StaffEquipment
The Genie GTH-1056, introduced to North America last month, has been designed to lower total cost of ownership by about one-fifth, while offering 20 per cent more lift capacity at maximum height.
The new telehandler has a side-mounted engine, a stronger boom design and a telescopic handler capable of lifting 4,536 kilograms (10,000 pounds). Genie has also improved durability by strengthening the boom and chassis.
“Design enhancements focus on delivering reliable machine performance for increased productivity on even the most rugged and challenging of job sites, while improving serviceability and lowering total cost of ownership,” Josh Taylor, Genie product manager, said in a release.
Customers can choose from one of three powertrain options for the GTH-1056 to match their job site needs.
