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.

Reach truck transports metal parts

The perfect solution for any application

Whether you need ultra-heavy loads transporting in a tight space or outstanding maneuverability, we’ve got the right solution for you. The heavy-duty version of our reach truck can carry up to 6 tons, while the NexX reach truck is equipped with multidirectional steering. So it is extremely maneuverable, and tight spaces are child’s play.


The right solution for your requirements
Our reach trucks with electric drive come in three different product groups.

NexX multidirectional reach truck 

Load capacities up to 3 t | Lift height up to 9,000 mm

The NexX multidirectional reach truck is particularly well suited to situations that will fox a conventional lift truck. The 360° HX steering system enables loads up to 8 meters long to be transported while saving space and changes in direction to be instigated in no time at all, thus ensuring safe, efficient handling.

The reach trucks have been designed for indoor use and outdoor use.

Twoway reach truck


Load capacities up to 6 t | Lift height up to 13,000 mm

This twoway reach truck really comes into its own wherever conditions on the ground are particularly challenging. Despite its compact dimensions, it can transport loads weighing up to 6 tons. This reach truck can be used wherever conventional models are beginning to struggle.



Here you can find answers to the most frequently asked questions. 

Cuál es la diferencia entre la carretilla retráctil HUBTEX y las carretillas retráctiles de serie?

The vehicles are particularly suitable for companies where the transport requirements increase due to particularly heavy and bulky loads. Conventional reach trucks quickly reach their limits with high payloads of more than 3 t. The HUBTEX SQ has the same dimensions as mass-produced reach trucks - but at the same time offers a significantly higher load capacity with particularly large load centres. The compact reach truck from HUBTEX is the right solution, especially for companies where the material flow has to be reorganised in confined spaces. This is because the SQ can also be used with constant working aisle widths. HUBTEX has equipped the special truck with an energy-efficient control system of the latest generation, which enables the truck to achieve maximum handling performance with its particularly long battery life.

HUBTEX también ofrece carretillas retráctiles para aplicaciones especiales, por ejemplo, carretillas eléctricas de gran capacidad o carretillas multidireccionales eléctricas de gran capacidad.

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.

Se pueden adaptar las carretillas retráctiles de HUBTEX a las necesidades específicas del cliente mediante opciones?

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.

En qué medida sus carretillas elevadoras están integradas en los entornos de la Industria 4.0, qué tareas realizan las carretillas automáticamente allí y dónde llegan a sus límites?

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).

Qué novedades espera a corto y medio plazo en el sector de las carretillas elevadoras?

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.
