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.
In response to increasingly stringent emissions and noise regulations, demand for hybrid- and electric-powered mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) is growing worldwide.
From auto racing to amusement parks and movie sets, aerial equipment applications reach beyond the more typical construction and maintenance settings.
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.
Power systems for mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) continue to evolve, just like the machines they drive.
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.
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 mining 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.
Increased market competition and competitive rental rates are significant challenges for rental companies.
For scale, no show in Scotland can rival the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
As the construction industry continues to modernize its business operation, telematics technology is now being widely adopted and more commonly used in the aerial rental market.
As more firms are designing in 3-D, we are receiving an increase in demand from architects and our customers for Genie® BIM files.
Telehandlers are multi-purpose machines that lift, move and place material.
Around the globe, capital cities and large provincial towns are going greener.
As aerial industry standards continue to become more closely aligned worldwide, manufacturers like Genie, who produce scissor lifts (a classification of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPS) named for their lifting mechanism design — a stack of crossed tubes that work in a scissor-like fashion when the platform is raised and lowered) for global markets are taking a closer look at how requirements in these standards impact machine design and safe use.
“We think of BIM as a beginning-to-end concept,” says Josh Lyons, architect for The Thrasher Group, an architecture, engineering and field services company, headquartered in Bridgeport, W.Va.
In today’s competitive market, we, at Genie, know that it is more important than ever for you to establish and earn your rental customers’ respect as a trusted advisor.
