Winner of the International Awards for Powered Access ‘IAPA Product of the Year 2021’, the HeightRider 17 Narrow (HR17N) is a self-propelled cherry picker that will lift 2 people and their tools to a working height of 17m or a working outreach of 9.7m.

180° rotating cage and fly-boom coupled with fully proportional multi-function controls deliver exceptional precision when positioning, making tasks easier and quicker to complete.

The HR17N's compact dimensions and zero-tail-swing enable it to travel through and work in restricted spaces, while its non-marking tyres mean it can work both inside and out, making it ideal for maintenance or industrial work.

The HR17N is available with two power options. You can choose from super-efficient battery power, or Niftylift's revolutionary second-generation Hybrid power system.

Battery ('Electric') power is ideal for indoor use, or for quiet, clean operation. It comes with an all-electric drive that allows its maintenance-free AGM batteries to work for longer on a single charge, so more work can be completed and running costs reduced.

Hybrid power incorporates a smaller, power-optimised EU Stage V compliant engine, supported by the machine's electric motor when extra power is needed. This maintains power and performance while reducing fuel consumption for maximum efficiency. The Innovative 'Diesel Re-Gen' feature also recharges the batteries, giving a 'fast-charge' whenever the machine is idle and the engine running. In addition, the Hybrid system also offers an electric-only mode, perfect for indoor, or quiet and clean operation.

The HR17N incorporates Niftylift's ToughCage, and multi-award-winning SiOPS® safety system, which eliminates sustained involuntary operation by instantly halting machine movement if the operator is pushed against the control console.

All HR17Ns manufactured since the first of January, 2020 are 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.
