HX Sideloaders

Responsive, quick & cost-effective, from 3 to 5 tonnes capacity

Small But Perfectly Formed

Changes in materials and advances in toughened glass allowed us to reconfigure the glass panel on the new cabin. An extremely thorough testing process requires major structural improvements, such as new cabins to be tested to destruction, with the results held in storage for at least a decade. The result is a more sturdy design, together with more sensitive control via a new hydraulic system.

The new design was tested by applying large amounts of pressure to the roof. The aim was to provide an improved view and outstanding protection without sacrificing the build quality and durability for which the brand is renowned.

  • A highly efficient engines

  • Upgraded cabins

  • Sturdy, proven components

  • Improved control

Key Features

Low deck heights and short chassis lengths do not compromise the HX’s ability to carry long loads in tight areas.

Handles and footsteps allow the operator to access loads and cabin with the minimum of effort.

The Hatz 54kw engine meets tough emissions standards via an oxidising catalytic converter, and without the need for a regenerative process.

Following two years of trials and six months of rigorous testing, the cabin has been redesigned to strengthen the framework, simplify access and allowing the central side struts to be removed.

The Range: Compact-Sized, Light Duty

  • Optimized weight distribution thanks to the power unit below deck
  • Environment friendly, emission optimized powerful diesel engine
  • Low centre of gravity and high residual load capacities
  • Baumann chassis-tilting system on load side for faster and safer loadhandling
  • HX 30

  • HX 40

  • HX 50


The HX30, HX40 and HX50 models include new engines, refined ergonomic cabins and new joystick controls, with award-winning levels of practicality, durability, and visibility.


The latest HX models provide compact performance and superb durability. Our previous cab improved visibility to the front corners but our continuous development ethos meant we still aimed to improve.

The HX is the perfect model for customers looking for the Baumann reliability and productivity, but in a small and nimble chassis. The glass side panel on the new cabin now means the driver’s view has been significantly improved from both sides.

Operators can spend the majority of their shift inside the cab, unlike perhaps many forklift operators, who are more likely to be off and on. Getting the interior right is a must. Access is more open and the response from operators and owners has been superb.
