Among new platforms from Genie Industries are the GS-3232 electric scissor (above) and the S-60 HC, a high capacity version of the S-60 telescopic boom. The scissor has a maximum platform capacity of 227 kg and maximum working height of 11,75 m, and has a footprint of 2,44 m long and 0,81 m wide stowed. The S-60 HC, meanwhile, gives extra carrying capacity over the standard S-60 boom, with full range of motion up to 340 kg, and limited envelope working at up to 567 kg carrying capacities. Genie says this version of the boom will be popular with mechanical contractors, glazers and brick layers, among others.
