New PM Protocol For Genie Scissor Lifts And Telehandlers

May 17, 2016

Maintenance time and costs are reduced with a new consolidated maintenance protocol for all Genie GS-scissor lift models and Genie GTH-telehandler models in North America. Following updated procedures and simplified intervals, the new Genie maintenance instructions provide owners the flexibility needed to keep their equipment operating longer while making routine tasks a priority.

With this new maintenance protocol, Genie has condensed six separate maintenance manuals into one easy-to-use manual. This one-stop maintenance manual contains complete performance specifications, as well as a streamlined list of maintenance tasks to complete. It is available in hard copy or digital format for easy integration into custom electronic systems.

Designed to save and simplify, the new protocol also includes recommendations for extended service intervals opportunities; for example, many periodic procedures for scissor lifts have moved from quarterly and semi-annually to annually.

Commissioning has changed, too. Rather than perform some of the tasks at the 30-hour mark and some at 50 hours or longer, now all of the commissioning assignments for scissor lifts and telehandlers are set for 50 hours and 150 hours.

“The streamlined maintenance procedures reduces the number of times a Genie scissor lift or telehandler needs get to the shop for preventive care. Less time in the shop translates to more time out on the job, lowering the company's total cost of ownership,” says Karen Stash, Genie Senior Director, Global Product Management and Marketing, Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP). “This approach makes scheduled maintenance less time-consuming.”

The new maintenance protocols are now available in North America.
