Winner of the Hire Association Europe’s HAE Product of the Year 2013, the Height Rider 15 Hybrid 4-wheel-drive (HR15 Hybrid 4×4) self propelled cherry picker 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 super-low-weight design. It offers one of the most impressive working envelopes in its class and its compact base allows it to manoeuvre easily in enclosed spaces and its extremely low overall weight helps to minimise transportation costs.
The Hybrid option incorporates a small, power-optimised TIER IV compliant engine supported by the machine’s battery pack for when extra power is needed. This maintains power and performance while reducing fuel consumption for maximum efficiency. In addition, an electric-only mode allows zero-emission operation and the HR15 Hybrid 4×4 can also operate on battery alone, making it ideal for indoor, quiet or clean applications. The Innovative Diesel Re-Gen feature 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 HR15 4×4’s 1.8m wide, tough, impact-resistant ToughCage offers more space for materials and tools and a 150° fly-boom with 180° cage rotation increases accuracy when positioning the cage. The multi-award winning SiOPS® provides additional operator protection.
The HR15 4×4 is available with two power options, Diesel-only or Hybrid power. Both the Diesel and Hybrid power options include Niftylift’s advanced exhaust purification system, which greatly reduces Carbon Monoxide, Hydrocarbon and particulate emissions making either an environmentally conscious choice.
