23 May Niftylift Launches the new HR28 and HR15D
There was excitement all round as Niftylift revealed the brand new Heightrider 28 Hybrid (HR28) and new low weight Heightrider 15 Diesel (HR15D) to more than 100 of its customers at Towcester Racecourse in England.
The HR28 Hybrid, which is the world’s largest electric boom, offers a 28m working height and a class leading 19m unrestricted working outreach with a three-person (280kg SWL) cage. At only 14,500kg, this machine is the lightest in its class and combined with its very compact stowed dimensions, it offers customers reduced transport and running costs. Its Hybrid power plant and catalytic converter greatly reduce fuel consumption and emissions, and an electric only mode allows emissions-free usage for indoor applications. The HR28 Hybrid also comes with SiOPS® (Sustained Involuntary Operation Prevention System) as standard, providing an added level of protection for the operator. The HR28 Hybrid’s combination of low weight, reduced ownership costs, flexibility, safety, and performance will make it a formidable offering to this market segment in mid 2013.
At only 4,250kg the new HR15D is by far the lowest weight 15m self propelled boom available on the market today and offers customers the opportunity to reduce their transport and fuel costs significantly. The machine is installed with a particulate filter to further reduce emissions and is currently offered in both 2×4 and 4×4 drive configuration with the option of Hybrid technology. The HR15D comes with SiOPS® as standard and also includes Niftylift’s ToughCage, providing operator protection and further reducing operating costs. The HR15D will be available for delivery in Australia early 2013.
