Genie Industries has designed a new consolidated maintenance protocol enabling customers to complete the entire program for any Genie S- and Z-boomlift models in less time, the company said. With this new approach, maintenance procedures are reduced or eliminated to save time and labor costs.
Previously Genie offered 24 separate manuals to help customers maintain their boomlifts. With the new maintenance protocol, all of that information is condensed into one manual. The one-stop maintenance manual contains complete performance specifications, as well as a streamlined list of maintenance tasks to complete. The one-stop maintenance manual is available in hard copy or digital format.
“We realize that our customers have limited time to take care of maintenance tasks between rentals,” said Karen Stash, senior director, global product management and marketing, Terex Aerial Work Platforms. “To make completing routine tasks more manageable, Genie has designed a new approach to maintenance that condenses procedures into one manual, standardizes the maintenance procedures across the entire boom family, and extends service intervals, so the whole process is easier and takes less time to complete.”
The new protocol includes extended service interval recommendations. Many periodic procedures have moved from quarterly and semi-annually to annually. Some tasks have been extended from every 30 hours or every 50 hours to as many as every 150 hours.
“Our new protocol means approximately 10 hours less per year on boom maintenance and up to 25 percent reduction in service resources per boom,” added Stash. The new Genie maintenance protocol has standardized the processes across the entire Genie boom product line, with more product families to follow in 2016.
