GAS Sells Genie’s Highest Electric Scissor Lift to ACDC Dynamics


There was no better way for us to begin our partnership with ACDC Dynamics than to sell them the new Genie GS4655 electric scissor lift – the first one to have landed on the African continent.

ACDC Dynamics Maintenance Manager, Kobus Pieterse says, “We’re currently using the machine to for lighting maintenance in the warehouse. The height at which we can  operate is really impressive and super helpful in getting our job done in a more efficient manner. The maneuverability of the machine through the aisles is also a factor which has proved very beneficial to us. This machine will also be used outdoors for general maintenance which includes painting jobs and repairing signage. It is a very versatile and user-friendly machine.”

Genie launched this powerful high-reach model in April 2019 in the EMEA which became available worldwide in 2020. The new GS-4655 is a slab scissor lift with a high working height, a powerful lift capacity, and compact dimensions. It’s also notable for its electric drive.

The new Genie® GS™-4655 scissor lift is in a league of its own. “Thanks to its heavy-duty, fully sealed front-wheel AC electric drive motors, the new Genie GS-4655 scissor lift is designed with sustainability, productivity, and a low cost of ownership in mind,” said Zach Gilmor, Genie’s EMEA product manager for Terex AWP. “Replacing traditional hydraulic drive motors with its new AC system, this model relies on fewer hydraulic service points, reducing service time and costs for a cleaner and greener usage.” We engineered this model to deliver the height and emissions-free power to work indoors and out, even in harsh outdoor jobsite conditions,” said Gilmor.


The GS-4655 is the latest slab scissor lift from Genie, and the highest in the range with a 15.95m working height and impressive lifting capacity of 350kg. Indoors, the GS-4655 has a maximum working height of 16m and outdoors, the max working height drops to 10.7m. It can lift up 350kg, or three people plus tools and/or building materials. Designed to be a robust, eco-friendly electric scissor lift, this model has been engineered from the ground up to not only to meet new international safety standards but also to incorporate a host of innovative new features unique to the Genie brand that add value to the end user and reduce running costs.

The ‘efficient drive system’ incorporates fully sealed high-performance AC electric drive motors that replace the traditional hydraulic drive versions on previous models; ensuring efficient operation and maximum runtime per battery charge. With 25% gradeability to cope with demanding ramps, the GS-4655 literally is a ‘go anywhere’ machine with precise and smooth drive control, and fewer hydraulic service points. Regenerative braking also feeds power back to the batteries, further increasing runtime per charge.

The ‘dual zone control’ is an addition to the already user-friendly Smart Link™ control and diagnostic system on all Genie scissor lifts. The GS-4655 controls now feature a new dual zone selection allowing for outdoor use with restricted working height (8.55m) at the push of a button, boosting this model’s utilization and application.

The innovations on this model make it the most operator friendly, energy efficient and lowest maintenance cost scissor lift available today. Sharing these unique new features of Genie’s highest slab scissor lift is another new model from Genie, the GS-1330 which is the smallest in the range with a 5.9m working height.
