The Genie Lift™ is a manually operated material lift. It is easily loaded into any size pickup truck or van to go wherever a lift is needed, states the manufacturer. It handles loads up to 500 pounds (227 kilograms) and has a lift capacity as high as 13 feet 9-1/2 inches (4.2 meters). Three base models are available, as well as a number of accessories. The compact design of the standard base model allows lift and maneuverability in congested work areas, says the company. The straddle base model with adjustable base legs straddles loads or fixed objects up to 36 inches (91 centimeters) wide. The short, 9 inch (23 centimeter) front legs of the counterweight base model let the user get close to the load to access countertops or shelves above fixed objects, says the company. It is available in 4-, 8-, 10-, and 12-foot mast heights and features a hold-down mechanism that secures the carriage during transport.
