Many of the Nifty-Lift Insulated models are easily converted to an Un-insulated version, providing a light and inexpensive solution to many working at height issues. Additionally, our sales and engineering teams are also able to work with our customers to bring together an EWP manufactured overseas, with a locally sourced cab chassis to ensure compliance with local registration requirements. Due to the limited number of applications in Australia, local manufacturing of large (30 metre +) EWP’s is not viable, so Nifty-Lift are able to arrange local commissioning of our customers preferred large EWP brand.
