In case of short operating times or multiple drivers, it often requires a fourway sideloader which is easy to operate and inexpensive to purchase. At the same time, the driver must be able to enter and exit the cab quickly. All of these criteria are fulfilled by the new EASY fourway sideloader from HUBTEX for the transport of long goods up to 2 tons.
The EASY is intended as a fourway sideloader for simple indoor applications. It was deliberately designed as a low-cost sideloader with reduced equipment options. The EASY has a load capacity of up to 2 tons and its 4-wheel chassis is driven by one drive motor. Three wheels have a synchronized steering system to deliver HUBTEX’s multidirectional steering for longitudinal, transverse and circular travel. The fourway sideloader is ideal for handling profiles in the aluminum or plastics industry, for window manufacturers or in retail and is intended for operating times of 3–4 hours per day, working indoors with good floor conditions.
Our EASY in action. The focus here is on the integrated multidirectional joint system HX, which makes it possible to manoeuvre from longitudinal to transverse travel without stopping.
The standup cab in the EASY fourway sideloader offers outstanding all-round visibility and a low entrance. The operational controls are clearly arranged. The hydraulic functions are controlled by individual levers. The installation of complex control and pump technology was consciously omitted.
Two lift mast variants are available for the EASY fourway sideloader. A 2-stage Simplex lift mast with a lift height of 5000 mm and a 3-stage Triplex lift mast with a lift height of 6100 mm.
For the EASY, a type 2 fork carriage for long goods is available as standard, optionally with a hydraulic fork adjusting device.
The 4-wheel chassis has a vertical motor and a caster (under the cab) as well as 2 double load wheels on the load side. The rigid frame is designed for good floor conditions in indoor use. Three wheels have a synchronized steering system, to ensure longitudinal, transverse and circular travel. With a front dimension of 800 mm, three different effective widths are available for the EASY at 800, 1000 and 1200 mm.
With a front dimension of just 800 mm, it can be used in narrow aisles. Guide rollers can be fitted if required. These are provided as standard components and individually welded on at the appropriate guide roller dimensions.
Two battery sizes are available for the EASY sideloaders. Depending on the application requirements, a 48 V battery with 465 or 620 Ah is available.
