Soon, all Genie® GS™ scissor lifts and GR™, QS™ & GRC vertical mast lifts will be manufactured in compliance with applicable national standards adopted by each country
A pre-operation inspection is a visual inspection of a mobile elevating work platform (MEWP) performed by the operator prior to each work shift.
A pre-operation inspection is a visual inspection of a telehandler performed by the operator prior to each work shift.
Performing function tests is a crucial part of safe work practices before operating any telehandler because function tests are designed to discover any malfunctions before the machine is put into service.
As is the case with all equipment, mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) require regular, preventive maintenance to maintain peak performance. Ensuring a MEWP gets the maintenance it needs is not only important to safety, but to performance as well.
With many size classifications of boom lifts available, understanding key features and benefits offered by each size of machine can help you ensure the right lift for the job, maximizing productivity.
As use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) across different industries and applications continues to grow, understanding how to safely load and transport your Genie® MEWP is essential for safety, as well as to protect your investment.
In response to increasingly stringent emissions and noise regulations, demand for hybrid- and electric-powered mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) is growing worldwide.
Throughout the life of your Genie® equipment, and especially as your fleet ages, performing scheduled and preventative maintenance can minimize the risk of unforeseen repairs and breakdowns.
From auto racing to amusement parks and movie sets, aerial equipment applications reach beyond the more typical construction and maintenance settings.
Every jobsite has its unique challenges and requirements; there is a lot of variety in the type of work that end-users are doing. For rental companies that serve customers in a range of industries and trades, there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach when it comes to their equipment fleets.
When Stage V engine standards took effect as of January 1st, 2019, it impacted the majority of Genie® machines, including GTH™ telehandlers, higher horsepower S® and Z® boom lifts and GS™ rough-terrain scissor lifts.
Over the past two decades, the European Union (EU) has adopted a series of seven directives to address exhaust emissions for engines used in non-road equipment like telehandlers, boom lifts and scissor lifts.
The idea and purpose of hybrid machines have not really changed since their introduction, but the execution of these machines has evolved significantly along with the technology that powers them.
Industry standards governing the design, use and manufacture of any aerial product will require periodic reviews, as new technologies and best practices enter the market.
Power systems for mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) continue to evolve, just like the machines they drive.
There is no substitute for a face-to-face communication. But, getting together in person isn’t always possible, particularly right now as cities, states and countries are asking people to stay at home.
In today’s technology-driven economy, data provides many benefits to equipment manufacturers and rental stores, as well as their customers — there is real value in exploring it, using it and sharing it.
Material lifts are portable aerial work platforms that offer affordable solutions for lifting, positioning and installing materials.
Mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) are used in a variety of work environments.
