HUBTEX reach trucks
HUBTEX’s reach trucks come into play wherever conventional models are beginning to struggle. Three different models make up the range of available solutions: the NexX multidirectional reach truck, the fourway reach truck, and the two-way reach truck.
All solutions boast compact dimensions, great maneuverability, and high load capacities. The reach trucks with two- or fourway steering are ideal for use in situations where long loads sometimes need transporting in tight spaces.
The right solution for your requirements
Our reach trucks with electric drive come in three different product groups.
Here you can find answers to the most frequently asked questions.
HUBTEX also offers reach trucks for special applications, for example electric heavy duty or electric multidirectional heavy duty reach trucks.
This is exactly the strength and also the core competence of HUBTEX. With our reach trucks we offer users load capacities of up to 6 t - and all this with the most compact dimensions possible. The vehicles are particularly suitable for companies where transport requirements increase due to particularly heavy and bulky loads and at the same time the material flow has to be reorganised in a confined space. In addition to the compact SQ series, we also offer a heavy-duty version of our reach trucks, naturally with multidirectional steering if required.
Can HUBTEX reach trucks be adapted to the specific requirements of the customer via options?
Thanks to the modular system with its many options, the forklifts can already be adapted to most of our customers' needs. If no suitable solution can be found, we are even able to produce one-offs for our customers due to our individual production possibilities. In this case, we integrate our development into the concept and offer phase and plan an individual vehicle concept that is perfectly tailored to the respective application.
To what extent are your reach trucks integrated in Industry 4.0 environments, what tasks do the trucks handle automatically there and where do they reach their limits?
Our reach trucks are always interesting when mass-produced reach trucks reach their limits. These are usually special applications where compact vehicle dimensions and particularly high load capacities are required at the same time. In the overall market, our reach trucks are therefore more of a niche product. Accordingly, it is rare for customers to ask us for fully automated reach trucks. Nevertheless, we have been working for years on the further development of our extensive range of assistance systems, with which we are also advancing the subject of automation. This means that we can use all our industry 4.0-compatible solutions in the vehicles via the HUBTEX Information Terminal (HIT 3).
What developments do you expect in the short and medium term for reach trucks?
An ongoing issue for all manufacturers is the energy efficiency of vehicles. In the coming years, higher engine and battery system performance capacities will be in particular demand here. This makes investment in vehicles with lithium-ion batteries interesting for applications with a medium number of operating hours.
Another trend is that the boundaries between vehicles and peripheral systems such as warehouse management are becoming increasingly blurred with the possibilities offered by the Internet of Things. Already today, intelligent operating units, such as the HUBTEX Information Terminal, can generate countless advantages.
