Product Description

Are you putting too much strain on your back lifting heavy loads?


Many people do not realize the amount of strain we put on our backs lifting heavy loads throughout the workday. According to the Mayo Clinic website, "Back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor or miss work, and it is a leading cause of disability worldwide. Most people have back pain at least once."


As one of the leading causes of disability worldwide, we should take proper care to ensure the safety of ourselves and our employees as we do our work.

Are you concerned with the well-being of your employees?

As employers, if we are not careful to look out for the safety of our employees, we run the serious risk of losing our best people to disability or worse -- a disability claim lawsuit.


Employees are more engaged and effective in work environments that give them the tools and support they need to be at their best.

Other Super Hoist Model from the Same Genie Brand You Trust: Super Hoist GH 3.8

From Genie's Product Catalog:

The Genie® brand was born in 1966 with the original Genie Hoist — a unique portable pneumatic lift that was so successful, it launched the development of a full range of material hoists and aerial work platforms. Today’s Genie Super Hoist™ lift continues the legacy of innovation with an incredibly compact, easy-to-use design. This portable telescoping pneumatic hoist uses CO2 or compressed air to lift up to 300 lb (136 kg) to heights of 12 ft 5.6 in (3.8 m) or up to 250 lb (113 kg) up to 18 ft 4.5 in (5.6 m).

Flexible Power: The hoist is powered by either CO2 or compressed air and provides approximately 80 to 90 lifts from a single tank of CO2. The “one size fits all” bottle mounting bracket accepts any common CO2 bottle size. A 20-lb (9 kg) CO2 tank is also available as an accessory. The hose stretches 16 ft (4.87 m) for added mobility and stores around brackets underneath the platform when not in use.

Easy Operation: Up and down functions, including the dump valve, can all be activated from the pistol-grip control handle, which clips to a storage button on the side of the cylinder when not in use.

Lightweight, compact and portable, this telescoping pneumatic hoist allows an individual to lift heavy loads into place for installation.

Platform Cradle Package: Available as an accessory to handle odd-shaped items.

Versatile Applications: Lift, position and install a wide variety of materials, including metal and fiberboard air ducts, overhead sprinklers/plumbing, drywall and ceiling panels, as well as electrical fixtures.

Quick, Easy Setup: Sets up in seconds — no special tools required. The one-piece platform attaches to the cylinder

with a twist of the wrist. Legs fold out from the base, and the lock mechanism keeps each leg out for use (or up for storage). Casters also lock in place with the touch of a toe.

Lightweight, Compact Design: The compact size and weight allow one person to lift and place heavy loads, yet quickly move from job to job. The hoist is completely portable and easy to store and transport. It’s so lightweight and compact, it fits in the trunk of most cars.
