It also needed a solution that could ma-
noeuvre well in restricted space, while provid-
ing sufficiently long outreach to performmain-
tenance tasks on scaffolding at height and to
efficiently access the steep, confined area sur-
rounding the narrow 3.4 m (11 ft 1 in) tunnel
For Caposele, the new GTH-5021 tele-
handler offered several key features that were
decisive in its purchase decision.
“When Simo recommended the rotating
GTH-5021 R, it certainly was sound advice.”
"Effectively, the GTH-5021 R tele-
handler combines several key benefits that
proved to be particularly well-suited to the
“Our operators rapidly mastered the
machine’s turret rotation thanks to its in-
tuitive joystick control, and its ability to
handle heavy work with or without deploy-
ing the outriggers has proved to be an ad-
vantage for work close up to the tunnel
says Massimo Secondulfo, Job-site Manager,
Offering a maximum 20.87 m (68 ft 5 in)
lifting height and maximum 18.2 m (59 ft 8 in)
outreach, the GTH-5021 R telehandler benefits
from a wide choice of easily interchangeable
attachments that are common to all six models of the
GTH telehandler range.
“We have been using a fixed hook on plate,
mechanical jib and man platform which have
enabled us to perform all the tasks we need with
just one machine,”
explains Mr. Secondulfo.
As work continues to progress at a good, steady pace,
Mr. Secondulfo concludes,
“In terms of safety, visibility from the cabin is
"We are fully satisfied with our new GTH-
5021 R that has continuously performed ex-
tremely efficiently and reliably despite the tough
conditions, even with temperatures in excess of
40° C (104° F) during the hot summer months
and with temperatures below 0° C (132° F) in
The Genie GTH R rotating
A key comment from customers is how remarkably sim-
ple and intuitive to operate. The three models in the
GTH range of rotating telehandlers offer the versatility
and challenges of job-sites that demand equipment with
long reaching and heavy lifting capabilities.
Intuitive controls make these telehandlers among
the simplest to operate on the market, in addition to
their ability to lift considerably heavy loads with or
without stabilizers, their rotating turret makes position-
ing extremely simple, fast and precise.
The three models of the Genie rotating telehandler
family offer lifting heights from 15.42 m (50 ft 7 in) to
20.87 m (68 ft), lifting capacities from 4.000 kg (8.817 lbs)
to 5.000 kg (11.022 lbs), and up to 2.000 kg (4.409 lbs)
or 2500 kg (5511 lbs) at maximum height.
Combining productivity with operator comfort, new
control features include an electrically controlled parking
brake, operated by an intuitive switch on the dashboard
for increased braking efficiency.
Excellent visibility from inside the cab provides op-
erators the wide field of vision they need.
An upgraded overload system makes the calibration
process much easier and faster.
