GTH 1256 Telehandler Overview

Combine compact maneuverability, high reach, a large lifting capacity, and industry-leading performance and you’ve perfectly described the GTH-1256 telehandler from Genie. Featuring a military-grade-chassis design that’s rugged enough to handle any task, a ‘quick attach’ (QA) system for easy interchange of forks and carriage, and a rear-mounted boom-support for easy visibility, this telehandler is built to perform.

Genie GTH -1256 Telehandler – Versatile, Yet Seriously Practical 

Providing high visibility over a low-boom profile the GTH 1256 is designed specifically with the operator in mind. Powered by a choice of either a Deutz 4.1 Turbo diesel engine or an equally powerful Perkins 148hp tier 4 Interim engine, make no mistake that this is a serious piece of equipment. With a vertical reach load of over 7000 lbs at 56 ft, the GTH -256 telehandler from Genie doesn’t mess about. Add to this the 42 ft horizontal reach with a lift capacity of 3,000 lbs (or 12,000 lb standard lift capacity) and it’s perfect for large-scale construction sites or other areas where quick and efficient lifting is key. Boasting three selectable steering modes consisting of front wheel, co-ordinated, and crab steer, plus a proportional frame-leveling chassis as standard, safe maneuverability in busy, uneven, and even cluttered environments is made easy. In addition, multi-functional ‘in cab’ joystick controls for precise load positioning make light work of handling even the most tricky of objects. What’s more, the excellent Duetz or Perkins diesel engines have the ability to hoist the 4-stage boom to its full height quicker than many other telehandlers or boom lifts in its class. In essence, the GTH-1256 is a serious workhorse that makes even the most demanding of tasks easy. Yet it feels as light and nimble as many smaller, less powerful telehandlers and that’s down to the overall design and the thought that’s gone into it.
