17m Electric Articulated Boom – Niftylift HR17NE

The HeightRider 17 Narrow (HR17N) will lift 2 men and their tools to a working height of 17m or a working outreach of 9.7m.

A 180° rotating cage and fly-boom coupled with fully proportional multi-function controls deliver exceptional precision when positioning, making tasks easier and quicker to complete.

The HR17N’s compact dimensions and zero-tail-swing enable it to travel through and work in restricted spaces, while its non-marking tyres mean it can work both inside and out, making it ideal for maintenance or industrial work.

Battery (‘Electric’) power is ideal for indoor use, or for quiet, clean operation. It comes with an all-electric drive that allows its maintenance-free AGM batteries to work for longer on a single charge, so more work can be completed and running costs reduced.

The HR17N also incorporates Niftylift’s ToughCage, and multi-award-winning SiOPS® safety system, which eliminates sustained involuntary operation by instantly halting machine movement if the operator is pushed against the control console.
