- What it looks like:
- Make/Model: It's a GR-12, serial number GR01-122, manufacturing date 10-27-00, model year 2001, PIN GR 120A10100C

Follow three simple rules:
- RTFM and inspect machine before use. Wear a hardhat.
- When you're done, turn it off and plug it in. This is super important, as the batteries will damage themselves if not maintained. It's like $800 to replace them.
- Call me if you have any questions. (248)379-3614

Things that Need to be Done
Yet to do, short term:
- Replace the leaking hydraulic hose.
- It's Genie part number 69426, which has 35 inches of hose between the fittings.
- The fittings are Parker 1JC43-6-6 "Hose end, female swivel, seal lok", and the hose itself is Parker 451TC-6 "Hose 3/8 inch ID"
- Procure and bend new wire for battery-keeper bars. They're Genie part number 57990, "rod, battery lock", see the parts manual.
- Coat battery terminals generously with anticorrosive.
- Figure out why the base-run function doesn't work.
- Procure a spray-can of Boe-Lube, clean the column, and spray all the sliding surfaces.
Yet to do, medium term:
- Wire additional small-gauge (fused!) 3-wire connection from the batteries to the battery-charger area, preferably with a 3-way PP45 disconnect, for the new charger.
- Mount and wire AC for the new charger.
- Replace the rubber boot that covers the drive/lift mode switch on the platform controls.
- Change the hydraulic fluid. (Pretty sure it's Dexron; specs are in the manual, linked from the machine's wiki page.)
- Perform other maintenance as the manual describes, such as tensioning the column cable.
Wishlist, long term:
- Diagnose and repair the platform-power connection.
- Possibly procure or make new nylon friction blocks for the column.
- Redo the vinyl lettering on the machine panels and sides.
- Replace the hydraulic fluid filter.
- Remove, sandblast, repaint, and reinstall the battery bays.
- Ammeter for charging/discharging current?
