The electric multidirectional counterbalance forklift

The electric counterbalance forklift FluX is the universal companion in the building materials trade. It has been specially developed to handle both pallets and long goods. Its soft elastic tires enable it to be used in different ground and floor conditions, both indoors and outdoors. The patented HX multidirectional steering system ensures a smooth change of direction. In combination with its fixed mast, trucks can be loaded and unloaded quickly and safely.

The electric multidirectional sideloader (3-wheel)

The entry-level version of the electric multidirectional sideloader is the DS 27 with a load capacity of up to 2700 kg. Its narrow dimensions offer particular benefits for DIY stores and the building materials trade. The low entry height of the cab is ideal for drivers who need to get in and out frequently. Thanks to its electric drive, the three-wheel vehicle is perfectly suited for indoor use in narrow aisles. Nevertheless, the vehicle is equipped with soft elastic tires enabling it to operate over a wide variety of ground and floor conditions both indoors and outdoors.

The electric multidirectional side loader

The use of a HUBTEX electric multidirectional sideloader from the ESTL, PhoeniX or MaxX series is always the right choice when needing to transport long goods. In the building materials trade these can be all types of wood materials, steel girders, pipes and profiles. The modular system available for these series is very large, meaning that these vehicles can be adapted to almost any application.

The fourway sideloader with diesel or gas drive from HUBTEX

HUBTEX fourway sideloaders show their advantages whenever long loads need to be transported outdoors. The compact HUBTEX fourway sideloaders with diesel or gas drive are preferably used in external storage areas for the building material and timber trades. The three-wheel steering system is very agile due to its large steering angles. The steering system’s switching times are very short. The new design of the DQ-X has been specially adapted to the requirements of the driver. 



Handling precast concrete elements
Transport of precast concrete elements with an inloader

GTR inloader

HUBTEX internal loaders are used to transport heavy-duty stillages and oversized pallets weighing up to 40 tons. The transporters are available with electric, diesel or gas drive and, with the appropriate tires, can be configured for both indoor and outdoor use. The load is picked up by synchronous lifting of the chassis with carrying rails. The special vertical lift guarantees secure and precise lifting of the stillage, without displacement. The precast concrete elements are secured during transport by four hydraulic clamps.



Transporting concrete elements by HUBTEX

GTT frame transporter

HUBTEX provides the GTT series for the in-house transport of precast concrete elements with load capacities up to 50 tons. The stillage is picked up by driving under it and lifting the platform. The advantages of this truck lie in its compact design and the resulting excellent maneuverability with the smallest turning radius. With GTT trucks, the elements are secured either by load or stillage clamps. Load clamps are required if the elements are transported unsecured on the stillage. If the concrete elements are already secured by a stillage, then a stillage clamp is often sufficient.

Building materials dealer Groen & Janssen

Long, heavy and sensitive goods place special safety requirements on careful transport logistics. In combination with limited storage space and narrow rack aisles, conventional forklift trucks quickly reach their limits. That's why, in only two years, Groen & Janssen invested in four Hubtex multi-directional sideloaders to optimize its material flow.
