Diesel/gas fourway


The HUBTEX vehicles in the DQ series are ideal for outdoor use, especially with poor ground conditions. The driver is the focus of the latest development, the DQ-X. The cab has been designed to ensure maximum ergonomics and visibility has been increased to a maximum thanks to more compact masts and fork carriages. The intelligent vehicle control system, in combination with the latest motor technologies, reduces noise, exhaust emissions and energy consumption to a minimum. The vehicle is universally suited for the transport of long goods in narrow aisles or as a conventional frontloader for pallet and block stacking.

HUBTEX fourway forklift scores with best all-round visibility in its class

The focus of all new developments of the DQ-X with a load capacity of 4.5 t is the driver, which is why the newly designed cab and mast are highlights of the new series. The ergonomic cab offers improved legroom and the best all-round visibility in its class during transport and loading. The visibility is essentially made possible by the newly developed free-view lift mast and the compact fork carriage. In addition, the new windows with reduced reflection also contribute to optimum visibility. The driver is not distracted by reflections in the windscreen and can concentrate fully on the work process.

Energy-efficient and quiet

Users of the new fourway loader can choose between different driving modes depending on their work requirements. The new eco mode ensures especially energy-saving driving. Thanks to an intelligent vehicle control system, the pumps and cooling system are only supplied with as much energy as is required to carry out the current work. This saves fuel and also significantly reduces vehicle noise.


Driver’s cab

The enlarged cab of the DQ-X fourway loader provides the driver with maximum comfort and freedom of movement. All vehicle information is clearly displayed on a color display. A larger touch screen option is available, with integrated camera views if required. Thanks to the newly designed anti reflective glass windows, annoying reflections are a thing of the past. Due to the larger vehicle dimensions of the 3051 and 3052 series, the cabs are also larger in the heavy-duty range. The drivers can benefit from increased arm and legroom

Operating the DQX via finger tips and travel direction switch

The improved cab concept in the new DQ-X allows for excellent all-round visibility. The driver has a significantly larger view radius than in comparable competitor models. The ergonomic operation via finger tips and travel direction switch allows for quick and convenient operation. In the case of the heavy-duty vehicles, operation is via individual levers or optionally via joystick.

Steering system
The steering of the DQ series has been completely revised and optimized.

The newly designed steering system has a 20° greater steering angle than comparable predecessors. This gives vehicles in the DQ-X series a significantly tighter turning circle. Moreover, the switching times from longitudinal to traverse drive are significantly reduced. Under normal driving conditions, the time for a change of direction is reduced by up to 40 percent. The improvements lead to a considerably faster turnaround of goods and improved maneuverability.

View of the low-emission and low-noise turbo motor

The DQ-X has a low-emission, quiet turbo motor which fulfills the criteria of the Tier 4 final / EURO Stage III B emissions standard. Compared with its previous motor, emissions have been reduced by up to 30 percent. In addition, the diesel-powered DQ-X – just like the HUBTEX electric forklifts – is equipped with driver assistance systems which increase occupational safety: For example, it automatically slows down on bends or when a load is lifted. Forklift drivers work with the new DQ-X in an energy-efficient, quiet and highly ergonomic manner. The 3051 series also uses motors from other manufacturers.

HUBTEX 3-wheel chassis in use on asphalted floor

The 3-wheel chassis is the best solution with poor floor conditions. Due to their hydrostatic all-wheel drive with separately activated differential lock, they are ideally suited for poor ground or floor conditions as well as semi-solid ground (even for slippery surfaces such as ice and snow).  

Fork carriage and lift mast

The Triplex mast with our Type III fork carriage

Lift masts and fork carriages have been specially redesigned for the DQ-X. The focus of the development was on improving visibility to the load. The result is the more compact masts and fork carriages. In vehicles with a higher load capacity, the mast profiles are further apart in order to meet the higher load capacities for long loads. 

Telescopic forks

Our vehicles often have to carry different load depths. If this is the case, our hydraulically adjustable telescopic forks are exactly the right equipment for your HUBTEX.  They are controlled simply at the push of a button from the cab.

We know that the handling of long goods presents users with special challenges. Arrange a non-binding consultation appointment with our specialists to obtain the best possible solution for your application.

The transport of long and heavy wood sheets is child’s play with the HUBTEX DQ-X

The compact design of the lift mast improves visibility of the right fork, especially when lifting long loads.
