Tip-over Hazards

Do not use this machine
to lift people. This
machine is intended for
lifting material only.

Do not stand on the
platform.

Do not raise the platform
unless the machine is on
a firm, level surface.

Do not raise the platform unless all four legs are
locked into the down position and each caster
brake has been locked.

Do not raise the platform unless the load is
centered and secured with rope or straps.

Do not move the machine while the platform is
raised.

Do not raise the platform in strong or gusty winds.
Increasing the load surface area will decrease
machine stability in windy conditions.

SAFETY RULES

GH 3.8: Do not exceed rated load capacity of
136 kg  / 300 lbs.
GH 5.6: Do not exceed rated load capacity of
113 kg / 250 lbs.

Do not place ladders or scaffolds against any part
of this machine.

Do not use this machine on a moving or mobile
surface or vehicle.

Immediately lower the platform if side deflection or
bowing occurs.

Electrocution Hazard

This machine is not electrically insulated and will
not provide protection from contact with or
proximity to electrical current.

Do not operate the machine within 10 feet / 3 m of
any overhead electrical current.

Keep away from the machine if it contacts
energized power lines or becomes electrically
charged.

Pre-Operation Inspection

Do Not Operate Unless:

You learn and practice the principles of safe

machine operation contained in this operator's
manual.

1 Avoid hazardous situations.

2 Always perform a pre-operation

inspection.

Know and understand the pre-operation

inspection before going on to the next
section.

3 Always perform function tests prior to use.

4 Inspect the workplace.

5 Only use the machine as it was intended.

Fundamentals

The pre-operation inspection is a visual inspection
performed by the operator prior to each work shift.
This inspection is designed to discover if anything
is apparently wrong with a machine before the
operator tests it.

Refer to the list on the next page and check each
of the items.

If damage or any unauthorized variation from
factory delivered condition is discovered, the
machine must be tagged and removed from
service.

Repairs to the machine may only be made by a
qualified service technician, according to the
manufacturer's specifications. After repairs are
completed, the operator must perform a pre-
operation inspection again before going on to the
function tests.

Function Tests

If any of the results listed under the following steps
are not observed or any other malfunction is
discovered, the machine must be tagged and
removed from service.

Setup

1 Select a firm, level area free of obstructions.

2 Stand the machine up on its base. Release the

leg locks one at a time and lower each leg to
the down position.

3 Firmly grasp the cylinder assembly and lift it

enough for each leg to lock into the down
position.

Result: All four leg locks should click into the

locked position.

4 Position the platform over the mounting plug and

fasten it securely with the T-nut.

5 Set the CO

2

 tank bracket next to the CO

2

 tank.

Wrap the straps around the tank and attach the
tank tightly to the bracket. Set the CO

2

 tank

bracket with the tank on any one of the hoist
legs.

Note: Leave the tank on the bracket until it is
necessary to change tanks.

Function Tests

Do Not Operate Unless:

You learn and practice the principles of safe

machine operation contained in this operator's
manual.

1 Avoid hazardous situations.

2 Always perform a pre-operation

inspection.

3 Always perform function tests prior to

use.

Know and understand the function tests

before going on to the next section.

4 Inspect the workplace.

5 Only use the machine as it was intended.

Fundamentals

The function tests are designed to discover any
malfunctions before the machine is put into service.
The operator must follow the step-by-step
instructions to test all machine functions.

A malfunctioning machine must never be used. If
malfunctions are discovered, the machine must be
tagged and removed from service. Repairs to the
machine may only be made by a qualified service
technician, according to the manufacturer's
specifications.

After repairs are completed, the operator must
perform a pre-operation inspection and function
tests again before putting the machine into service.

Platform Raise and Lower

9 Lock all four caster brakes.

10 Raise the platform by pressing the up button on

the hand control.

Result: Each tube should extend individually and

smoothly. They should not stick.

11 Lower the platform by pressing the down button.

Result: The platform should descend at a

smooth, controlled rate.

12 Raise the platform again and then lower it by

opening the manual dump valve on top of the
hand control.

Result: The platform should descend at a

smooth, controlled rate, but more quickly.

Note: Raising and lowering the platform twice,
without a load, lubricates the columns.

FUNCTION TESTS

6 Spin the pressure regulator connecting nut onto

the CO

2

 tank valve stem and hand tighten. It is

not necessary to use a wrench.

Tip-over hazard. The pressure
regulator operating pressure is
preset for the maximum load
capacity of the machine. Modifying
or using any other pressure
regulator or compressor in excess
of 600 kPa / 90 psi service could
result in death or serious injury.
Use only Genie approved
replacement parts.

7 Connect the hose and hand control by inserting

the hose plug end into the coupling on the side
of the pressure regulator. Connect the hand
control hose to the valve at the base of the
cylinder assembly.

8 Open the CO

2

 tank valve slowly by turning the

handle counterclockwise.

Component damage hazard. If the
CO

2

 tank valve is opened quickly,

the pressure regulator diaphragm
could be damaged.

determine if the workplace is suitable for safe
machine operation. It should be performed by the
operator prior to moving the machine to the
workplace.

It is the operator's responsibility to read and
remember the workplace hazards, then watch for
and avoid them while moving, setting up and
operating the machine.

Do Not Operate Unless:

You learn and practice the principles of safe

machine operation contained in this operator's
manual.

1 Avoid hazardous situations.

2 Always perform a pre-operation

inspection.

3 Always perform function tests prior to use.

4 Inspect the workplace.

Know and understand the workplace

inspection before going on to the next
section.

5 Only use the machine as it was intended.

Workplace Inspection

Be aware of and avoid the following hazardous
situations:

·

drop-offs or holes

·

bumps, floor obstructions or debris

·

sloped surfaces

·

unstable or slippery surfaces

·

overhead obstructions and high voltage

conductors

·

hazardous locations

·

inadequate surface support to withstand all load

Operator’s Manual

Operating Instructions

This machine is intended for use as a material lift
only.

When new, the machine may be stiff due to tight
seals and packings. The machine will function
smoother after use. The machine is heavily
lubricated during manufacture to assure long lasting
and smooth performance. Occasionally, excess oil
may leak out of the quick disconnect plug at the
base of the cylinder assembly.

Take precautionary care to avoid
lubricant spills on finished floors.

Setup

Follow the instructions listed in the Function Tests
section.

Platform Raise and Lower

1 Lock all four caster brakes.

2 Raise the platform by pressing the up button on

the hand control.

3 Lower the platform by pressing the down button.

Operating Instructions

Do Not Operate Unless:

You learn and practice the principles of safe

machine operation contained in this operator's
manual.

1 Avoid hazardous situations.

2 Always perform a pre-operation

inspection.

3 Always perform function tests prior to use.

4 Inspect the workplace.

5 Only use the machine as it was intended.

Fundamentals

The Operating Instructions section provides
instructions for each aspect of machine operation.
It is the operator's responsibility to follow all the
safety rules and instructions in the operator's
manual.

Using the machine for anything other than lifting
material is unsafe.

If more than one operator is expected to use a
machine at different times in the same work shift,
each operator is expected to follow all safety rules
and instructions in the operator's manual. That
means every new operator should perform a pre-
operation inspection, function tests and a workplace
inspection before using the machine.
