17m Hybrid Articulated Boom – Niftylift HR17

Ref: C35

The Height Ryder HR17 4×4 offers one of the most impressive working envelopes in its class. Its compact base and extremely low overall weight allows it to manoeuvre easily in enclosed spaces.

Its ToughCage offers more space for materials and tools and a 150⁰ fly-boom with 180⁰ cage rotation increases accuracy when positioning the cage. The tough, impact-resistant composite base and larger cross-section steel rails of the ToughCage also give additional strength and durability, while the multi award winning SiOPS® provides additional operator protection.

The Hybrid incorporates a smaller, power-optimised TIER IV compliant engine supported by the machine’s battery pack for when extra power is needed. This maintains power and performance while reducing fuel consumption for maximum efficiency. The innovative ‘Diesel Re-Gen’ feature also recharges the batteries without a mains power source, giving a ‘fast-charge’ whenever the machine is idle and the engine is running. In addition, an electric-only mode allows zero-emission operation, making it ideal for indoor use, or for when extra quiet and clean operation is required.

Also included is Niftylift’s advanced exhaust purification system, which greatly reduces Carbon Monoxide, Hydrocarbon and particulate emissions making the HR17 an environmentally conscious choice.
