It’s a slippery time of year for vehicles on jobsites, but Genie has developed a new traction control drive system for its GS-68 RT series of 68-foot rough terrain scissor lifts. The design uses valves to divide and isolate hydraulic flow to each wheel, allowing the wheels to operate independently. Should one wheel lose contact, the unit will maintain 75 percent of its power, enabling you to maneuver on sites with slopes of 35 to 40 percent. A new dynamic hydraulic braking system also gives you smoother control on rough terrain.
