Genie Introduces its Highest Capacity Telehandler for Heavy Industry and Construction
The new 5,450 kg capacity telehandler is purposefully designed to improve durability, lower total cost of ownership and provide maximum productivity on the jobsite. Focused on simplifying fleet ownership and maintenance, the new GTH-1256 shares many features and parts across the other GTH product line.
The new GTH-1256 telehandler debuted at The ARA Show held February 13-15, 2023 in Orlando, Florida.
An industry-leading load chart means the GTH-1256 delivers more capacity at maximum lift height than any other telehandler in its class. That is 2,721 kg at a maximum height of 17.15 m and 1,588 kg at maximum outreach of 12.8 m.
The GTH-1256 is powered by a side-mounted 120 hp Deutz engine with 4-speed powershift transmission, 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.
A new cab design features enhanced visibility of all 4 tires, a 7’’ 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,” said Amalija Kopac, Genie senior product manager. “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!”
