THE ART OF WORKING SIDEWAYS

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

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, our qualified sales and service network provides professional support to customers across the globe.

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

Whilst our new cabin design follows two years of trials and six months of rigorous testing, strengthening the framework, whilst 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.
