Premiere for new Hubtex sideloader at IMHX

Premiere for new Hubtex sideloader at IMHX

At the International Materials Handling Exhibition (IMHX) 2016 in Birmingham, Hubtex Maschinenbau, a German manufacturer of industrial trucks, and its British distribution partner Translift Bendi will together be showcasing their expertise in the field of sideloaders specialising in the handling of long and heavy loads.

Trade visitors can visit exhibition stand 11R61 to get a close-up look at the new DQX fourway sideloader, which is being presented to an audience of industry professionals for the first time in the UK. The new sideloader from Hubtex impresses with a particularly high level of visibility and an ergonomically designed driver cabin. There is also the option of either a diesel or petrol engine. Furthermore, Hubtex is also presenting two separate electric multidirectional sideloaders.

Equipped with all-wheel drive, the new DQX fourway sideloader has been designed for outdoor use and boasts a highly ergonomic driver cabin, new steering and an energy-saving "Eco" mode. The new cabin and mast design also ensures optimum visibility during transport and loading.

Drivers also enjoy a great deal of legroom thanks to the sideloader's spacious cabin. The DQX is designed to handle long and bulky goods of up to 4.5 tonnes in weight. It also benefits from a very high level of user-friendliness and energy efficiency thanks to its intelligent vehicle control system. In addition, Hubtex is presenting two new electric vehicles in time for autumn 2016, both of which represent a cost-effective, technically advanced entry-level model in the long loads segment.

Synergies in the distribution of sideloaders

Hubtex together with Translift Bendi will be providing information about its entire portfolio of industrial vehicles and sideloaders at the company's exhibition stand. Bendi has been a distribution partner of Hubtex Maschinenbau GmbH in the UK since the start of 2016. Both companies develop and sell innovative products and solutions.

"We are able to take advantage of synergies through our collaboration," says Simon Brown, Managing Director of Translift Bendi Ltd. "Bendi and Hubtex sideloaders are outstanding due to their user-friendly handling and high level of manoeuvrability in narrow aisles."

Through Bendi, British customers are able to purchase the entire product portfolio of multidirectional sideloaders, special purpose vehicles and commissioning vehicles. "With Bendi at our side, we are optimally positioned to serve the British market and also profit from the company's technical and regional expertise,” explains Hans-Joachim Finger, Managing Director for Sales and Procurement at Hubtex.
