Nifty HR12N - 12.2m Self Propelled Cherry Picker

The Nifty Lifty HR12N self propelled cherry picker is a firm favourite with our customers. It's favoured for it's versatility and reliability and it's all round performance inside and outside

Designed to give maximum reach from a light, compact base unit, The HR12N Boom weighs in at under 3.5 tonnes, which means it can be moved around on smaller lorries, keeping the delivery costs down. The HR12N's telescopic upper boom gives improved accuracy when positioning the basket and superb manoeuvrability. It is fully drivable from elevated.  It's narrow (1.5m wide) chassis means that HR12N is ideal for working in restricted spaces. It can be used with a diesel engine or with battery power for a wide variety of applications. 

It is also available as a 4X4 drive, for use on rough terrain.

Can I hire a transformer and lead with this lift?

Yes. Request when you place your order 

How long will the batteries last?

You should get a days work done with full battery charge. Driving the machine around a site will drain the batteries more quickly.

What do I need to charge this lift?

A 3.3KVA Transformer and 110v lead is required to charge this access platform. Most lifts need 6-8 hours to re-charge.  

Will this lift work on uneven ground?

No. This machine is fitted with a tilt alarm for the operator's protection. You should choose a diesel scissor lift with jacks or a static cherry picker with outriggers. 

Do I need to use a harness when using this MEWP?

Although it's not a legal requirement, the HSE strongly recommends that a full body harness with an adjustable lanyard is used when working from a boom type MEWP. These are available to purchase from ATP. Ask when you make your booking.
