Our electric and hybrid-powered boom lifts provide the obvious benefits: Energy efficiency, quiet operation, lower weight and lower cost. Industrial applications where the machines must be driven significant distances, the Genie FE hybrid system combines the benefits of a 48V DC machine with the power.
Several models feature a 48V DC electric drive system, which can be freely used in areas where quiet, emission-free operation is important. The Genie Z-40/23N model was the first in the industry to feature an AC drive system, which combines DC batteries with 3-phase AC drive motors for boom lift quiet, more energy efficient operation and longer battery life. This advanced system yields better drive speed and grade-ability, and the drive wheels work independently for excellent traction control. This system is also found on the Genie Z-33/18 boom.
Feel about alternatively powered booms. The market is looking for cleaner, greener and quieter equipment in the field, especially for indoor applications, and Genie has responded. These models offer ideal up and over reach in confined work spaces. Zero tails-wing means there’s no need to reposition the lift when rotating the turntable in crowded areas. And, the compact size suits applications where a lower machine weight is needed.
High performance, high efficiency and low emissions, Genie hybrid boom lift rental use an environmentally-friendly, fully compliant engine-powered generator to maintain the battery state of charge or to supplement the battery power to get a boost in machine performance. Constantly monitoring the state of the battery, our hybrid technology maximizes run time and minimizes fuel consumption.
