Self-propelled booms are compact, manoeuvrable and can be driven from the cage while elevated, saving time and improving efficiency during tasks. Some models offer 4-wheel-drive for better rough terrain performance.
1.HeightRider 12 Low-Weight
The HeightRider 12 Low-Weight (HR12L) self-propelled cherry picker from Niftylift, is one of the lightest and most versatile machines in its class.
Weighing just 2,540kg (a 2,470kg Lithium battery option is available), the HR12L can be transported on a trailer (rather than a truck), offering significant savings for site-to-site transportation. This smaller transportation option also reduces potential emissions during delivery allowing the machine to be moved easily in low-emission zones such as Central London’s LEZ.
The HR12L utilises a super-efficient battery power system with an all-electric drive that allows the batteries to work for twice as long, so more work can be completed on a charge and running costs reduced.
A telescopic upper boom gives the HR12L improved accuracy when positioning the platform and superb chassis manoeuvrability makes it ideal for a wide range of applications.
2.HeightRider 12 4×4 (HR12 4×4):
Its compact dimensions and class-leading working envelope, the HeightRider 12 has always been versatile and reliable. Add to this a low weight chassis and a powerful four-wheel-drive system and you’ve got the HeightRider 12 4×4 (HR12 4×4) – one of the most complete 12m (40ft) self-propelled boom lifts available.
Its telescopic upper boom provides increased accuracy when positioning the platform and 6.10m outreach make the HR12 4×4 self-propelled boom lift perfect for reaching up and over all kinds of obstacles.
The HR12 4×4 self-propelled boom lift’s deep tread rough terrain tyres provide extra grip even on soft ground.
Nifty’s trade-mark ‘Bi-Energy’ option allows the HR12 4×4 self-propelled boom lift to work in a wide range of environments.
