THE ART OF WORKING SIDEWAYS

Baumann is a world-class manufacturer of sideloaders from three to 50 tonnes capacity with a reputation for consistent innovation, and the highest level of design and productivity.

Based in Cavaion in Italy, the family-owned company has led the sector for almost 50 years, and now sells its products worldwide through 106 dealers in 76 countries.

Today, the company has a qualified sales and service network that provides professional support to customers across the UK.

The latest model, the ELX offers ‘another great leap sideways’ and has earned us our second FLTA Award nomination in a row, following 2016’s Innovation win for the remarkable Archimedes outreach system.

Whilst the new cabin design follows two years of trials and six months of rigorous testing, strengthening the framework, simplify access and allowing central side struts to be removed.

With an emphasis on quality, reliability and durability, our philosophy of high service levels, world class industrial vehicles and reliable innovation neatly fits the needs of the materials handling world.

The new Baumann GX Series utilises the direct drive Archimedes screw and sliding blocks, to extend the fork carriage, whilst preventing transverse movements and eliminating unnecessary stresses. The system means greater sensitivity and consistent control, and the maximum working speeds – results never before reached. Superb diesels and high performing electrics also typify this excellent range.

Baumann Sideloaders offer the most effective way to handle a multitude of long or bulky products, typically timber, plastics or metals.

Safety

Sideloaders are very safe, with the operator above and to the side of the load, protected by a robust cab and grill. Wet disk brakes give added durability and security, whilst grab handles, generous steps and excellent visibility makes the operator space a comfortable place of work.

Cost

These machines offer incredible durability and are highly engineered for years, if not decades of use. Such performance doesn’t come cheap, but resale values are high, meaning the investment is well worthwhile. Other sideloader manufacturers may cut back on steel or spend less time on product development, but with Baumann, performance is guaranteed.

Comfort

The Baumann cabin is a comfortable and highly ergonomic space. Hydraulic levers are naturally placed to the driver’s right who also has a multi-adjustable armrest for optimum comfort. Visibility is excellent and a host of cabin options provide excellent upgrade potential. The most popular models feature hydrostatic transmissions with large load sensing pumps, to provide a smooth operation and operator experience.

EXCEPTIONAL PERFORMANCE IN ALL APPLICATIONS

Baumann, the world’s largest sideloader manufacturer. It has been at the forefront of developing new sideloader technology, offering very low maintenance and operating costs, together with a load-levelling system that enables the machine deck, load bed and forks to remain perfectly level at all times, even on rough terrain or slopes.

In 2016, the company won a Fork Lift Truck Association award for Innovation, for its Archimedes screw outreach system, one of the most significant developments in sideloader design in 40 years.

Despite being considered one of the most respected and reliable brands in the sideloader sector, the Baumann brand has suffered from confusion brought about by the sale of its German service arm in 2007, and subsequent attempts by competitors to utilise the Baumann name. The factory itself, established in the late 1960s, has responded by adopting the name of its birthplace on the shores of Lake Garda, Cavaion.

The location of ‘Cavaion Sideloaders Baumann’ was said to have been selected for its proximity to a renowned nearby technical school by owner, Wolfgang Baumann, who believes craftsmanship “permeates the local culture.”

The fledgling business took just six months to produce its first model. A family company to this day, Baumann now sells its 3 to 50 tonnes sideloaders worldwide through 106 dealers in 76 countries.
