Looking for reasons to choose a Baumann sideloader? We have reasons in spades!

Baumann is the global market leader in sideloaders from 3 tonnes to 50 tonnes capacity. We have a reputation for being a company you can trust, looking after our customers who stay with us for many years.

Investing in new technology, we are constantly refining and developing our products, one of the factors that has allowed us to lead the way in electric and high capacity models. In 2012, Baumann was awarded the prestigious Watt d’Or by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy. The award came for the energy efficiency of our first 120v truck in operation in Zermatt.

The latest 120v ELX is the first electric sideloader under four metres in length that retains a full well width and ground clearance.

The bespoke battery offers incredible work cycles, provides a cleaner working environment and is cheap to run. Cost saving, of course, is a big factor, but so too is noise, and those looking to cut noise pollution are often amazed at the difference.

We like to make life easier for our customers and work with leading dealers throughout the world who are experts in supporting and maintaining our equipment.

Key Reasons To Choose Baumann Sideloaders

Safety features highly on our list of product benefits. Baumann Sideloaders carry their cargo on the side. They are designed for long and awkward loads that would be dangerous, unstable or difficult to handle with a counterbalance forklift.

The cab is raised and the operator has a clear unobstructed view. This can make it safer and easier for operators to drive and ensure a safer workplace for everyone. We also add superb features such as cameras, pedestrian awareness monitoring, safety lights and other systems to provide a high quality, safe machine.

We are of course always looking to improve, and striving for better ways of handling led us to our patented VRS system, the biggest change to sideloader design in almost 50 years.

Productivity has been a watchword for Baumann since the beginning. Our highly engineered chassis are designed to be strong in a small footprint. Because the forks are on the side, the load doesn’t add anything to the width of the machine (this makes it easier to fit through doors and tight spaces) but Baumann masts extend beyond the width of the truck.

The flatbed is reinforced with highly durable deck material and also means that the load can be more evenly distributed and secured, so you don’t have to worry so much about balancing and you can focus on your operation.

The whole chassis can tilt to provide extra security and our patented auto-deck levelling ensures the load is kept horizontal, particularly when travelling over uneven ground.

Baumann has been building sideloaders for over 50 years. The machines are built to last and are often used for 10 years or more without any major problems. It’s a fairly niche product, so we want to ensure users keep coming back and we have customers that have stayed with us for decades.

The main sector for larger capacity models is steel, and over the years we have added extra capacity, over-dimensioned parts and built-in protection to cope with the demands and stresses from such high intensity use.
