Niftylift launches new 15m and 17m low-weight all-electric booms
Niftylift has launched two new, low-weight, all-electric booms, the HeightRider 15E (HR15E) and HeightRider 17E (HR17E).
The new HR15E and HR17E will lift two people and their tools to working heights of 15.7m and 17.2m, respectively, or a working outreach of 9.4m.
With both machines weighing less than 5t, they combine innovative weight and space-saving design with an excellent turning circle to deliver outstanding manoeuvrability on-site and reduced transportation costs for rental companies.
Their practical 180deg rotating cage and fly-boom coupled with fully proportional multi-function controls deliver exceptional precision when positioning the cage, making tasks quicker and easier to perform.
Their batteries will last four times as long as standard battery-powered machines due to a super-efficient battery power system with an all-electric drive. So they can do considerably more work on a single charge while at the same time reducing running costs. All this, and the inclusion of non-marking tyres as standard, make the HR15E and HR17E supremely versatile. They’re equally happy working inside or out but are particularly effective in locations where emissions or noise need to be limited.
They incorporate Niftylift’s ToughCage and multi-award-winning SiOPS protection, eliminating sustained involuntary operation by instantly stopping machine movement if the operator is pushed onto the control console.
The HR15E and HR17E all-electric booms use an advanced battery power system with an efficient all-electric drive that allows the batteries to work for significantly longer. Niftylift measures machine operation in ‘Standard Duty Cycles’ (expressed as an ‘SDC Rating’) and the new all-electric booms achieve an SDC Rating of 66 (at an ambient temp of 25degC).
The industry standard for a typical working day is 16, which means that they can potentially offer over 4 ‘days’ of operation on a single charge!
They come with AGM maintenance-free batteries as standard and a full monitoring and protection system that monitors battery voltage, DC current in and out, and battery temperature. The system stops batteries from being discharged to less than 20% of full charge, preventing battery damage that can be caused by excessive deep battery discharge – with no performance loss.
They include onboard diagnostics screens at both base and cage, giving owners and operators more information than ever before to help identify faults and assist with maintenance activities.
