28m Hybrid Articulated Boom – Niftylift HR28

Ref: C3854

The Height Rider 28 (HR28) Hybrid Four-Wheel-Drive (4×4) is one of a new generation of environmentally conscious work platforms from Niftylift. Combining advanced power-source technology with efficient 4×4, it delivers outstanding performance from a compact and low-weight design.

On Diesel, the HR28’s revolutionary Hybrid system can automatically utilise its electric motor to boost power whenever needed. This allows the HR28 Hybrid 4×4 to operate with a smaller engine, reducing fuel consumption and its exhaust purification system then further reduces CO/NOx, particulates, and noise emissions.

The HR28 Hybrid 4×4 can also operate on battery alone, making it ideal for indoor, quiet or clean work sites. Diesel Re-Gen recharges the batteries without a mains power source and a fast charge is achieved whenever the machine is idle and the engine is left running.

The HR28 Hybrid 4×4 also incorporates Niftylift’s multi award-winning SiOPS® safety system. SiOPS® eliminates sustained involuntary operation by instantly stopping machine movement if the operator is pushed onto the control console, allowing them to safely recover their situation.
