28m Hybrid Articulated Boom – Niftylift HR28

Ref: C3854


As the UK’s leading provider of Super MEWPSs and environmentally friendly access solutions, Mainline is proud to provide 28m hybrid boom lift hire services with the Niftylift 28m hybrid articulated boom.

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.

This machine proves a very popular choice for a variety of industries and projects: from high level cleaning in food factories to M&E installations or decorating. The Niftylift HR28 has a maximum working height of 28m, and is able to provide an impressive 19m horizontal outreach on its secondary boom. This outreach is a truly remarkable feature on a machine with such compact dimensions: the 2.49m machine width allows the Niftylift HR28 to operate in extremely restricted spaces: not only does this machine provide the outreach needed for steel erection and gazing projects, its small frame allows it to operate in spaces that are out of bounds to other machines in its category, and its superior lift capacity allows for more materials to be taken up in the basket.

This 28m hybrid boom lift can switch between diesel and electric power, making for a powerful machine suitable for outdoor use that can also be used in low emission areas such as inside warehouses or in Clean Air Zones, when operating on battery power.

On Diesel, the Niftylift 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.

“Diesel Re-Gen” recharges the batteries without a mains power source and a fast trickle charge is achieved whenever the machine is idle and the engine is left with no function.

The HR28 boom lift 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.
