Kennards Hire has introduced a new, lightweight material hoist, which can be used for many jobs including installing wall and ceiling appliances, and stacking shelves in shops, factories and warehouses.
Other uses include records storage and retrieval, moving office furniture and handling bulky goods, cement bags and similar items.
The Genie GL 10, which is available across the Kennards network of 92 locations Australia-wide, offers several advantages over traditional, heavier hoists.
The Genie GL 10 is compact, portable, fits through single doorways and can be positioned, so that the forks are hard against the wall.
Measuring 1060mm deep and 730mm wide, the Genie GL 10 can lift loads of 159kg (350lb) to a height of up to 3.56m (11 ft 8 in).
The forks and the legs are of the same length, 600mm.
With a stowed height of 1.96m, the Genie GL 10 is easy to transport and move around on site.
