Prolift Access engineer Marcus Dutfield has just put the finishing touches on a full refurbishment of a 1993 Genie AWP-19 aerial work platform.

Marcus has spent many hours meticulously working on the 23-year-old machine, and now has it looking and running as good as new.

Based at Prolift’s main depot in Wellington, Marcus completely stripped the machine down to its base and checked all parts and components for wear.

It was then shotblasted, resprayed and reassembled. During reassembly, chain rollers, mast rollers and chains were replaced, and various wiring repairs were completed. Both loading wheels were replaced, and a new battery was fitted.

New decals were added to the AWP-19, which was then given a load function test and a full LOLER examination.

Prolift’s regional engineering manager Terry Cole said: “Marcus has worked extremely hard on this machine and really has done an excellent job.

“He has encountered some difficult problems during the process, but has overcome them all and the machine is looking fantastic.

“It goes to show how a full refurbishment can extend the life of an older machine, at a fraction of the cost of buying a new one.”
