HR21 Hybrid AWD - 20.8m Self Propelled

The Height Rider 21 (HR21) Hybrid All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) self propelled cherry picker is one of a new generation of environmentally conscious work platforms from Niftylift. Combining advanced power-source technology with versatile AWD, it delivers outstanding performance from a compact and low-weight design.

On Diesel, the HR21's revolutionary Hybrid system can automatically utilise its electric motor to boost power whenever needed. This allows the HR21 Hybrid AWD self propelled boom lift to operate with a smaller engine, reducing fuel consumption and its exhaust purification system then further reduces CO/NOx, particulates, and noise emissions.

The HR21 Hybrid AWD self propelled access platform can also operate on battery alone, making it ideal for indoor, quiet or clean applications. Diesel Re-Gen re-charges 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 HR21 Hybrid AWD also incorporates Niftylift's ToughCage, and multi-award winning SiOPS® safety system which eliminates sustained involuntary operation by instantly stopping machine movement if the operator is pushed onto the control console. Its tough impact resistant composite base and larger cross-section steel cage give extra strength and durability, both protecting the operator and reducing the risk of damage to the cage.
