With this acquisition, which will be fully delivered by February 2023, Brazil-based Mills will have the largest electric and hybrid fleet in Latin America.

“By partnering with Genie, we are ensuring our customers’ jobsites will benefit from quality equipment that delivers superior performance, while helping us solidify our position as a leading provider of sustainable, clean-powered equipment,” said Eduardo Lema, Mills Rental business director.

Genie Z FE hybrid lifts can work indoors and outdoors even with a flat battery, using the combustion engine. The technology delivers true four-wheel drive performance, along with emission-free productivity in all-electric mode. In hybrid mode, FE booms can work an entire week on a single tank utilising its intelligent control system charging the batteries while the machine works.

Using the optional Genie Lift Connect telematics technology, performance data will be monitored in real time.

The scissor lifts include the GS-1930, GS-2632 and GS-3246 E-Drive units, which deliver up to 30% more runtime per charge, 25% gradeability and a 14° breakover angle that allows the lifts to crest the top of a ramp without bottoming out. Fully-sealed, brushless, maintenance-free AC drive motors and 70% fewer hoses and fittings contribute to reduced maintenance costs and a low total cost of ownership, said the company.
