Niftylift debuts deck-mounted AWP to US market
By Lindsey Anderson11 April 2011
Niftylift's Deck Rider 45 was on display for the first time to the US market at ConExpo in March. The DR45 is a static-base access platform that was developed to work in compliance with the 'working at height' regulations in the steel erection industry.
The unit features a platform height of 43 feet, a 29-foot, 6-inch working outreach and a 5-foot, 11-inch wide basket.
"Its unique low weight design allows it to be used at an earlier stage of build by working off the prepared steelwork prior to laying the concrete slab," the company said. "Upper floor steel assembly can then continue whilst lower levels are freed for rebar work, casting and light traffic. The reliiance on waiting for the slab to achieve sufficient load-bearing strength is removed, making steel erection swifter and more efficient."
This gives companies an 18 percent gain on efficiency, according to Mark van Oosten, export sales manager with Niftylift.
