The HeightRider 12 Low-Weight (HR12L) self-propelled cherry picker from Niftylift, is one of the lightest and most versatile machines in its class.

Weighing just 2,540kg (a 2,470kg Lithium battery option is available), the HR12L can be transported on a trailer (rather than a truck), offering significant savings for site-to-site transportation. This smaller transportation option also reduces potential emissions during delivery allowing the machine to be moved easily in low-emission zones such as Central London's LEZ.

The HR12L utilises a super-efficient battery power system with an all-electric drive that allows the batteries to work for twice as long, so more work can be completed on a charge and running costs reduced.

A telescopic upper boom gives the HR12L improved accuracy when positioning the platform and superb chassis manoeuvrability makes it ideal for a wide range of applications.

The HR12L also incorporates Niftylift's ToughCage and multi-award winning SiOPS® safety system:

The impact-resistant Composite/Aluminium base and larger cross-section steel rails of the ToughCage give additional strength and durability.

SiOPS® provides additional operator protection, eliminating sustained involuntary operation by instantly stopping machine movement if the operator is pushed onto the control console.
