Genie Material Lifts

Looking for a new Genie hoist or used Genie material lift? Genie produces an extensive and popular range of push-around material lifts – and we can offer you great deals on new and Approved Used Genie equipment!

Genie built its reputation on pioneering materials handling equipment – Genie Industries was founded in 1966, when it launched an innovative pneumatic material lift that operated using compressed air. Early customers were amazed and impressed by the “genie in the bottle” that powered the machine – hence the “Genie” brand name was born! So Genie has actually been a world leader in this field for more than 50 years. It is such a strong global brand that when Terex bought the company in 2002, it retained the Genie name.

Today Genie continues to be a global leader in material lifts that are designed to be easily transported, set up, and operated by one person. Popular with contractors the world over, these manually operated lifts are robust, lightweight and compact, as well as superb value for money.

Genie Super Hoist

Many contractors rely on a Genie Super Hoist on a daily basis, as it allows one person to lift and position heavy loads overhead. This is an incredibly compact, easy-to-use material lift. One person can set it up a Genie Super Hoist in seconds, with no tools required. This portable telescoping pneumatic hoist uses CO₂ or compressed air to lift up to 136 kg to heights of 3.8m on the GH-3.8 model, or 113 kg up to 5.6m on the larger GH-5.6.

The 4.8m long stretched hose makes a Genie Super Hoist ideal for installing overhead sprinklers and other plumbing, as well as air ducts and ceiling panels. With very compact stowed dimensions and a light weight of just 34-37kg, you can easily transport a used Genie Super Hoist in the boot of most cars, making it a great hire product as well as the perfect productivity aid for contractors.

A single tank of CO₂ provides around 80-90 lifts and the universal bracket accepts any common gas bottle size. Other features include wheel brakes as well as a quick-release leg lock to keep the legs stowed for storage and an auto-lubricating oil reservoir on top of each piston inside the cylinder.

Genie Lift

The Genie Lift series – also known as GL series – are versatile and cost-effective materials lifts. Ideal for warehouse and retail operations, they are excellent at placing and retrieving heavy goods on or off shelves. This family of four products is also popular for HVAC installation and repair, as they are great at lifting and positioning HVAC units – and can even be used as a hand truck, forklift or dolly.

With three base models and many accessories to choose from, you can rely on a Genie Lift to meet your material handling needs.

All GL series lifts load easily into a pick-up truck or small van for transport, making them a great contractor product. Standard features include a telescoping aluminium frame; reversible steel forks / winch handle; non-marking rear wheels and dual wheel; and front swivel casters on both the standard and straddle bases. The counterweight base has rear-swivel castors with side brakes and fixed front wheels.

The compact design ensures the machine passes easily through single doorways, while aluminium construction keeps it durable yet lightweight. There are four models in the range, all available as new or pre-owned products: the new or used Genie GL-4, new or used Genie GL-8, new or used Genie GL-10 and new or used Genie GL-12.

Optional extras include an integrated ladder, enabling the operator to access the same heights as the machine; and an electrically-powered winch for increased lift/lower speeds. For unusually-shaped loads there is even a load platform which fits over the forks.
