The Hire Guys, Balcatta on the north side of Perth, have purchased a 50ft Nifty Height Rider 17 4×4 Hybrid self-propelled articulated boom lift. They have recently taken delivery of the machine with a personal visit from Nifty’s John King.

The company is one of three independently owned The Hire Guys stores in the Perth area and until now the company only ran trailer lifts. The company has also acquired a six tonne truck with tilt-back bed for delivering the unit to customers.

Dan Bailey of Hire Guys, Balcatta said, “With the acquisition of a six tonne tilt-tray truck we were looking to expand our fleet and start the move into the self-propelled boom lift market. As a small, independent equipment hire company we always try to select equipment based on utilisation and versatility, something that we knew to expect from Nifty as we already have two of their Nifty 150TPE trailer-mounted work platforms in our fleet.”

“We talked with John King and had a look at the Nifty website. The Nifty Height Rider17 4×4 Hybrid, ticked multiple boxes such as height-to-weight ratio and versatility – as either diesel or zero emission electric, and rough terrain all in one. Add the advanced SiOPS secondary guarding safety features and modular ToughCage design and it made it a no-brainer for us.

Since taking delivery of the unit it has been a massive hit with our electrician, sign installers and property maintenance customers, for both indoor and outdoor jobs.”
