Facelift invests in 30 super-safe Niftylift HR17 with SiOPS technology
Facelift has recently taken delivery of the first of 30 of the new Niftylift HR17 diesel self-propelled booms, one of a new generation of environmentally-friendly work platforms from Niftylift.
Manufactured in the UK, and tailored to the European market, at just 4.9t the HR17 more than 30% lighter than comparable US-designed Genie machines, making it easier to manoeuvre and reducing both ground pressure and transport costs.
It also incorporates ToughCage and Sustained Involuntary Operation Prevention System (SiOPS®) technologies for additional operator protection. A tough impact resistant composite base and larger cross-section steel gives the ToughCage strength and durability, while SiOPS® offers additional operator protection, by cutting out instantly when it senses the operator being forced onto the controls - greatly reducing the potential for entrapment injuries.
Facelift’s investment in the HR17 is part of our ongoing fleet expansion, and in the New Year we will be replacing all of our self-propelled booms with new ones fitted with the SiOPS® safety system.
