Genie to unveil new ‘compact’ telehandler at bauma 2016

0

Terex AWP is marking its presence at bauma 2016 this April with the unveiling of four new products, including the new Genie GTH-3007 compact telehandler.

Providing fleet owners the versatile on-site productivity and cost-efficiency they need at a market-beating price, the new GTH-3007 combines efficient, full-featured capabilities with the most compact dimensions and lightest machine weight in its category.

As the heavier lifting, higher reaching brother of the Genie GTH-2506 compact telehandler, the new model – with a low weight of 5970kg – shares the same rugged durability common to all other six models of the Genie GTH telehandler family.

“However, unlike other heavier units by other brands, our new GTH-3007 telehandler combines the full capacity of a 7m (23ft) machine with the cost-efficiencies that only a 74hp Stage IIIB (Tier IV Final engine) can provide,” said Christine Zeznick, product manager, Terex AWP, EMEAR (Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia).

Boasting a maximum lift capacity of 3000kg, a vertical reach capacity of 2500kg at a maximum height of 7m, and a horizontal reach capacity of 1000kg at 4m, this new unit comes with the benefits of a low-emissions 74hp Stage IIIB (Tier IV Final) compliant engine to provide operators productive capacity and rapid rental returns on investment.

“In addition to reducing the machine’s initial acquisition cost, this new telehandler offers owners the peace of mind of fully compliant and low emissions operation without the need of DEF (urea) aftertreatment. Servicing is also notably faster and easier than units with higher horse-power engines, which enhances rental availability and boosts profitability,” said Zeznick.

In addition to offering a vertical reach up to the equivalent of three floors, this productive, versatile machine is well suited to an extremely wide variety of outdoor lifting, carrying, loading and placement duties in the general construction, waste-handling, recycling, materials-handling, demolition and farming sectors.

Coupled with a low 2.55m inside turning radius and high 45cm ground clearance, its compact dimensions offer a machine length at front wheels of 4.06m, a machine width of 2m and a machine height of 2.07m, making the GTH-3007 unit the perfect match for jobs on busy and congested sites in confined or difficult to access spaces. Optimizing transport costs, the combination of low weight and short machine length enables three units to be carried on one standard truck.

The GTH-3007 includes a rugged chassis, a two-stage boom with no chains or cables, durable heavy-duty steel fenders and field proven Dana axles with full-time planetary four-wheel drive and four-wheel steer. Equipped with a variable speed hydrostat transmission for smooth powerful drive, this unit features a side-mounted engine cover with a comfortable opening angle for easy filter replacement, access to engine components and hydraulic test ports located at the front of the chassis.

For attachment flexibility, the GTH-3007 comes with an optional auxiliary hydraulics Quick Attach carriage, a feature that the model shares with the GTH-2506 compact telehandler.
