Product Overview

The HeightRider 17 All-Electric (HR17E) is a zero-emission self-propelled cherry picker and will lift 2 persons and their tools to a working height of 17.2m or a working outreach of 9.4m.

Weighing just 4,970kg, the HR17E combines innovative weight and space-saving design with an excellent turning circle to deliver outstanding manoeuvrability on-site and lower transportation costs.

The HR17E's 1.8m wide ToughCage offers more space for materials and tools and a 150° fly-boom with 180° cage rotation increases accuracy when positioning the cage. The tough, impact-resistant composite base and larger cross-section steel rails of the ToughCage give strength and durability, while the multi-award-winning SiOPS® provides built-in operator protection.

The HR17E utilises a super-efficient battery power system with an all-electric drive that allows the batteries to work for four times as long, so more work can be completed on a charge and running costs reduced. This makes the HR17E supremely versatile as it's equally happy working inside or out but is particularly effective in locations where emissions or noise need to be limited.

The HR17E is also fitted with Niftylink as standard. Niftylink is a powerful telematics tool that provides data insights on your Niftylift’s health, activity and location. These insights provide a better understanding of machine usage, performance and life-cycle, as well as real-time error-code reporting. By maximising machine 'up-time' and reducing lifetime running costs, Niftylink offers significant improvements in efficiency and profitability, helping you to get more from your Niftylift.
