It’s been a busy few months at Star Platforms with a number of new arrivals into the fleet. All of these machines have been carefully chosen to complement our fleet and will offer a number of specific benefits for our hire customers.
In the first of a short series, we bring you an overview of the Niftylift HR 12 4×4.
Don’t forget, our experienced team are here to help. If you have a particular access challenge, we’d love to hear about it – there’s a very good chance we’ve got a machine in the hire fleet to help.
Q How do you make one the most popular boom lifts in a powered access hire fleet even more useful for operators?
A You give it a powerful 4 wheel drive system
That was the verdict when innovative British Access manufacturer Niftylift came to look at one of its best-selling boom lifts – The Niftylift HR12. The Height Rider 12 has long been a favourite of users with a unique combination of useful working envelope, compact base and travel width all mounted on a low weight chassis. The lightweight chassis has proved particularly useful for Star Platforms customers when in use on retail and office environment floor surfaces in particular.
Its telescopic upper boom provides increased accuracy when positioning the platform and 6.10m outreach make the HR12 4×4 self-propelled boom lift perfect for reaching up and over all kinds of obstacles.
This 4WD boom can tackle rough terrain with deep tread tyres providing essential extra grip when on softer ground surfaces and, as a Bi-Energy machine, it is equally at home indoors as well as out. Quiet, emission free electric power and non-marking tyres for internal applications. As a Bi-energy boom, operators can then switch to the powerful diesel engine for travelling over worksites outdoors.Back to all news
