New addition completes full line of Genie telehandler product offerings for increased customer benefits.
Genie is announcing the Genie GTH-1256 telehandler, providing industry-leading performance and exceptional usability with high capacity while leveraging a proven design. By adding the GTH-1256 to the smaller telehandlers, the Genie GTH-5519, 636, 844, 1056 and the larger GTH-1544 telehandler, it completes the Genie telehandler line.
“Genie is making its mark by launching a full telehandler line,” said Karen Stash, Senior Director, Marketing and Product Management, Terex AWP. “Our expanded fleet provides customers with a single contact for all their needs, whether it’s for buying new machines, maintaining their fleet or providing service and support. Telehandlers are excellent for most applications on a variety of jobsites, such as construction, oil and gas, masonry or demolition.”
Providing high visibility over a low boom profile, the Genie GTH-1256 telehandler has a lift capacity of 12,000 lbs. with a category-leading vertical reach capacity of 7,000 lbs. at a maximum lifting height of 56 ft. and a 42 ft. horizontal reach capacity of 3,500 lbs. The telehandler has a total weight of 36,600 lbs. A tight steering radius and hydrostatic transmission enable precise placement of materials and smooth machine control on jobsites.
The Genie GTH-1256 is a telehandler that is built to last featuring a military grade chassis design, the same chassis which is found on the largest Genie telehandler, the GTH-1544. The rugged chassis with field-proven Dana axles offers full-time planetary four-wheel drive along with four-wheel steering capability. The telehandler has a four stage boom with internal chains and hydraulic hard lines for extra protection. It has durable heavy duty fenders and is powered by a Deutz 154 hp Tier 4i engine, or a Perkins 148 hp Tier 4i engine.
“Telehandlers as a product category are intended for lifting and moving objects. They need to be tough enough to handle the most challenging conditions and the new Genie GTH-1256 telehandler will satisfy this need,” said Anders Mantere, Telehandlers Product Manager, Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP).
The GTH-1256 telehandler has a side mounted engine, providing excellent service access to the engine as well as hydraulic and electrical components. “Because the GTH-1256 is easy to service, that translates into maximum uptime for our customers which is a tremendously important quality,” said Mantere. Genie also offers its industry-leading service support and Genuine Genie Parts to help maintain the best uptime on the jobsite.
