Winner of the ‘Queen’s Awards for Enterprise 2019‘ Innovation award, the HeightRider 28 (HR28) 4×4 Hybrid is one of a new generation of environmentally conscious work platforms from Niftylift. Combining advanced power-source technology with efficient four-wheel-drive, it delivers outstanding performance from a compact and low-weight design.
Its revolutionary Hybrid power system incorporates a smaller, power-optimised engine, supported by the machine’s battery pack when extra power is needed. This maintains power and performance while reducing fuel consumption for maximum efficiency. The Innovative ‘Diesel Re-Gen‘ feature also recharges the batteries without an external power source, giving a ‘fast-charge’ whenever the machine is idle and the engine running. In addition, an electric-only mode allows zero-emission operation, making it ideal for indoor use, or for quiet, clean operation.
The HR28 also incorporates Niftylift’s multi-award-winning SiOPS®, a safety system that eliminates sustained involuntary operation by instantly stopping machine movement if the operator is pushed onto the cage control console, allowing them to safely recover their situation.
