I quit oufits that don't have Genies.
No way I go back in time to brake down jacks, screw that.
Genies can be loaded onto pick up's with one man and one arm, read the directions for cripes sake. for stairs a lot can come off, the legs, the forks, etc. then rolled up one stair at a time. the wheels never leave the stair step. only morons try and actually lift a genie, work smarter not harder. there is a reason break down jacksa cost less, they suck!If common sense is so common how come so few of us have it!

I have the Vermette 512A. It's a great lift. One man can take this thing anywhere. Try that with a telescoping Genie. Genies are nice...heavy duty....and just damn heavy.
Make sure you get the fork risers too

1/2 the time I use the lift, I use the risers, usually in walk-in coolers. Even if you don't do that kind of work, they were only like an extra $80 or so. Nice insurance to have around. Your supplier will have them in their catalog.
I guarantee some day you will need them.

I just looked at the pic of your lift. It almost looks like you can bolt the forks to a high or low position. What do you think?

I see what you mean.
It looks as if the forks are bolted into the highest position already. With two more sets of bolt holes to lower the forks.Get back to work.™

The fork can be rotated 180d up. and like a previous poster said a 24" extension can be bolted to the forks, very versatile. the mast sections come in 24" and 60".

they all can, loaded with one man, including the one James posted.
"youth's guys" really need to read the directions for once.........
I do it all the time, the handle on the back side of the hand crank can be moved into multiple angle positions, see how low it is in James picture. it can rotate up to the 90 degree angle position and rolled onto a pick up bed. they have a tipping point you must find, you have to also lock the forks into place, (see the yellow bar). keeps the mast from rolling into your cage or back window when the Genie is laid over. the genie forks can also be put in upside down if you lack ceiling hieght for the mast, turns it into a platform.
