Niftylift makes inroads into Eastern Europe.

UK Manufacturer, Niftylift, has recently acquired full Russian product certification and permission to use status, for its entire range of machines. In addition the company has begun supplying its range of self propelled platforms to a Hungarian rental company.
Niftylift's trailer mounted access platforms, self propelled platforms and track driven work platforms range in working height from 9 m to 21 m. According to Niftylift the demand for the machines in Russia is growing due to their fully proportional hydraulic control systems, ease of service and low maintenance related costs.
Until recently Niftylift's dealers have been importing product and self certifying locally on an individual basis, a process which was both time consuming and costly. Jim Craddock, international sales manager at Niftylift said that the new certification was most timely particularly in light of the CTT exhibition which took place in Moscow last week (17 - 21 June) where Niftylift machines were shown by Moscow based rental companies, LTECH and Rentalift.
The Hungarian rental company, P A Magyaroszag Kft (known as Partner) has ordered two Nifty HR21 21m 4 by 4 diesel only self propelled rough terrain machines, two HR17NE 17 narrow electric machines, two HR12NE 12 m narrow electric self propelled machines and three HR10E 10 m narrow electric self propelled machines.
Steven Navratil, managing director of Partner said that he thought the excellent working outreach and light payload of the Nifty machines would generate a lot of additional interest from his customer base.
