17m Hybrid Articulated Boom – Niftylift HR17N

Ref: C34

The Height Ryder HR17N will lift 2 men and their tools to working height of 17m or a working outreach of 9.7m. Its useful 180⁰ rotating cage and fly-boom coupled with fully proportional multi-function controls deliver exceptional precision when positioning, making tasks easier and quicker to complete.

An impressive working outreach with zero tail-swing helps the HR17N to reach awkward jobs, even when space is limited, and its super-efficient power system allows the batteries to work for longer, 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.

The HR17N’s 1.5m width and sub 2m height enables travel through restricted spaces. Optional non-marking tyres mean that it can work both inside and out making it ideal for maintenance or industrial work.

The HR17N features Niftylift’s revolutionary Hybrid power system, delivering the ultimate combination of environmentally conscious efficiency and performance.
