Genie Lift Power system provides power at the lift platform and includes a new generation of hydraulically driven generators that runs on a stand-alone circuit.
“This new configuration is a significantly different design from its predecessor system,” says Zach Gilmor, Genie Product Manager, Terex AWP. “Instead of relying on the lift or drive hydraulic circuit, this new generator system runs on a stand-alone circuit with a separate hydraulic pump to supply continuous electrical power from the generator.”
The system allows users to simultaneously drive and reposition the machine, raise the boom, and power tools.
The dedicated hydraulic circuit, includes a third hydraulic pump separate from the lift and drive hydraulic pumps, a right-sized breaker, and no pressure switch. When boom operators turn on the generator, the dedicated pump drives hydraulic fluid to the generator, which spins to produce power.
“This modernized generator system requires much less time to spool up — power is almost immediately available with the flip of a switch,” says Gilmor. “And, it offers increased productivity that translates to no power interruptions when using the generator to power tools, including during welding processes.”
Gilmor adds: “When boom operators turn off the generator, the system’s dedicated hydraulic pump is engineered to continuously run, cycling hydraulic oil through the oil cooler which cools and filters the oil back to the machine’s hydraulic tank. This modern design runs the unit reliably, efficiently supplying power when it’s needed.
- Generator-only Package: The 3 kW hydraulic generator supplies 120V power to the outlet in the platform for to power tools such as grinders, drills and lights.
- Welder-equipped Package: Includes a 3-phase 12 kW generator, with the choice of a Lincoln Electric or Miller weld machine, platform-mounted fire extinguisher, fireproof sleeves over exposed hoses and wires near the platform, and a convenient welder support shelf with protective cover.
- Welder-ready Package: Equipped with a 3-phase, 12 kW generator, which allows customers to attach their welder to the platform of the boom. This hydraulically driven generator supplies 240V 3-phase to a NEMA L15-30R platform outlet, as well as 120V single-phase power to standard single-phase outlets at the platform and at the base of the boom. This package includes a platform-mounted fire extinguisher, fireproof sleeves over exposed hoses/wires near the platform and convenient welder support shelf with protective cover.
