While other manufacturers are struggling with blowouts of delivery schedules, Hubtex is promising ‘shorter delivery times’ as one of the benefits of the makeover of the MaxX multidirectional sideloader.

During an upgrade to the production model in 2022, Hubtex has modified the cabins and the masts as well as giving the truck a more modern look. 

The cabin has been revolutionised in terms of appearance, with Hubtex adopting the key design elements of the PhoeniX modular system. 

The MaxX is now available in several variants: with a load capacity of 3,000 kg and a powerful 48 v drive or with a load capacity of 4,500 kg and a 48 or 80 v drive. 

The base vehicle of the MaxX series can also be individually adapted to the respective area of application using six different types of lift mast. This extends the lift height up to 7.5 m. Another special feature of the Hubtex truck is the fork tilt being directly at the fork carriage, rather than tilting the mast. This design significantly reduces excessive movement and sway in the extended mast, especially at high lift heights when handling long goods in narrow aisles. 

Hubtex claims the delivery times of the truck have also been reduced compared to the previous series due to the modular structure of the MaxX. 

The German manufacturer claims users will benefit from lower operating costs. With HX steering, the integrated dual-load wheels no longer turn on the spot. This reduces considerably the wear on the soft elastic tyres when used on a range of surfaces. It also increases the service life of the multidirectional device and consequently the residual value. 

With a simple battery changing process, the truck has a service life of five to eight hours at a maximum speed of up to 11 km/h, making it ideal for multi-shift operations.
