Genie will debut its new GTH-1256 telehandler in the Genie booth at The ARA Show.
An industry-leading load chart means the GTH-1256 delivers more capacity at maximum lift height than any other telehandler in its class. That’s 6,000 pounds at a max height of 56 feet, 3 inches and 3,500 pounds at max outreach of 42 feet.
Powered by a side-mounted 120 hp Deutz engine with four-speed powershift transmission, the GTH-1256 delivers 15 percent more efficiency in power transfer for picking and placing activities. New limited slip differentials on both axles and full-time 4-wheel drive provide the torque and traction needed for any jobsite, while single-reduction, planetary, specialty and transaxle lines deliver the reliability, power and performance for rough terrain.
Genie’s proprietary, long-life Enduro A/T tires are standard. These hybrid, all-terrain tires combine the best characteristics of rock lug tires and conventional rough terrain tires. A wide center bar delivers better wear on hard surfaces and self-cleaning outer lugs power through soft, muddy ground without becoming clogged. Enduro A/T tires also provide one-third longer wear before replacement is needed, reducing ownership costs.
A new cab design features enhanced visibility of all four tires, a 7-inch display, reverse back up camera, rear proximity alarm and full A/C system.
“This is a high-capacity telehandler designed, built and extensively tested for the realities of heavy-duty jobs,” says Genie Senior Product Manager Amalija Kopac. “When we were designing and testing this machine, we prioritized durability and reliability, along with a reduced total cost of ownership and productivity, ensuring our 12k telehandler will deliver the performance and longevity needed by equipment operators and owners – now, and well into the future. This is the next step as Genie develops and expands our telehandler family, and we’re excited to introduce you to the new GTH-1256.”
The Genie Quick Attach system makes it easy and fast to swap attachments, and the GTH-1256 shares attachments with Genie’s GTH-1056 10k Telehandler, including three carriage sizes (48-inch, 60-inch, and 72-inch), a rotating carriage and a swing carriage. This ease-of-use and commonality of attachments gives fleet owners an opportunity to increase the versatility of their fleet in a cost-effective manner, contributing to lower costs and a better rROIC.
