Baumann, the leading manufacturer of sideloaders for long load handling, has added its new safety system, SafeLoad Assistance, to the award-winning diesel powered GX Series.

The new system first appeared on the EGX Series having been in development for over seven years, and will now be available on both diesel and electric machines from five to eight tonnes capacity.

The SafeLoad Assistance system works by calculating the stability limit of the truck and using sensors within the chassis that consider the forces that are exerted by the load weight, the position of both the load and the truck, and a number of other factors. 

UK sales director, Mark Bann, believes the system helps operators avoid exceeding the stability limit. 

"With all Baumann sideloaders featuring body tilt, it’s not simply a case of seeing where they are in relation to the ground, or the distance from the load centre to the counterweight. It is a simple result but a very technical challenge to achieve. Many factors must be considered but ultimately, the results must be clear enough to allow the operator to quickly look at a screen, and act accordingly," said Mark.

The GX Series features the next generation Deutz TCD3.6 engine, re-designed chassis, refined ergonomic cabins and joystick controller. It offers the highest level of durability and control on the market. VRS, the Variable Reach System, also delivers high precision and productivity via the award-winning, low-maintenance Archimedes outreach method.

During the time spent developing the range, Baumann has seen load capacities increase and changes in design practices and the equipment itself have allowed the company to develop the technology further.

SafeLoad Assistance is further expected to reduce operational costs by reducing damage costs and increasing the durability of components used as designed. However, some customers may not accept being controlled in this way, adds managing director, Klaus Pirpamer: "It may reduce costs whilst the driver is adhering to load safety, but is also an indication of how the operator is working. This could be an issue because some operators would not accept to be controlled in this way. We are therefore listening carefully to our customers to see where we go forward with these features."

Baumann's commitment to safety is reflected in the design of its trucks, which are developed with a high safety margin for stability. The nominal capacity of the trucks is overachieved for safety reasons, and the trucks are equipped with safety components such as safety valves for the lifting functions and hydraulic pump. The SafeLoad Assistance system is another step towards ensuring the safety of the operator, load and pedestrians.

"Often our equipment is supplied on contracts that include maintenance," adds Mark. "Components that are used as designed are more durable, so maintenance costs are reduced, also there is the opportunity to reduce avoidable damage costs." 

Established in 1969, Baumann has a reputation for reliability and innovation and has won several awards for its products, including the prestigious FLTA Award for Excellence.

 

Baumann will be showcasing their SafeLoad Assistance safety system at LogiMAT 2024.
