The world of hybrid articulating booms has many excellent options available to you, but aside from the obvious factors such as height and weight capabilities, how do you pick the best option for your site?

We explore 5 things you need to know about the Niftylift HeightRider 17 Narrow or the HR17N as it’s more commonly known.

Reason 1- IAPA Product of the Year

It’s March 2021 and the Niftylift HR17N hybrid articulating boom is voted the ‘IAPA Product of the Year 2021’ in the ‘Self Propelled Booms & Atrium Lifts’ category. This cherry picker can lift 2 people to a working height of 17m or a working outreach of 9.7m. Whilst its zero-tail swing ensures safe working in some of the narrowest of spaces.

When asked why this impressive MEWP was a worthy winner the judging panel commented; ‘the combination of its narrow width, electric power and outreach, make it a real market leader’.

Reason 2- The engine

The power-optimised EU Stage V compliant engine works alongside the machine’s electric motor to make this one of the most powerful and efficient hybrid articulating booms available.

Niftylift has cleverly incorporated an innovative feature that they call a ‘Diesel Re-Gen’, the purpose of which is to recharge the batteries, giving a fast charge whenever the machine is idle and the engine running. Thus, the machine is ready to work when you are.

Working inside? Never fear, at the flick of a switch the hybrid system offers an electric-only mode for a clean and quiet operation.

Reason 3- an agile machine

Fast and precise operation is facilitated by the boom’s 180-degree platform rotation with fly-boom. This design coupled with the fact that the boom has zero tail swing and a 1.5m chassis, means that this is the go-to MEWP for tight hard-to-reach places.

Reason 4- safety standards

SiOPS enabled making it one of the safest machines in which to work at height. This system is designed to stop the machine from moving instantly, thus eliminating the chance of a horrific crush injury or trapping incident. It does so by sensing if an operator is pushed against the cage controls. When pressure is felt the machine stops any movement and does not move again until reset.
