“With the DS 27 we redefined the three-wheel sideloader as a complete package. We will soon be following on from it with further vehicles in this segment,” - Managing Director of HUBTEX, Ralf Jestädt. Click to enlarge.
Hubtex has extended its product range to include the DS 27 Electric Multidirectional Sideloader, which has been available since the start of October 2013. "This new development is part of our strategy of offering a wider, more customer-oriented and high-quality product range than any other market participant," explains Managing Director of HUBTEX, Ralf Jestädt. The new three-wheel sideloader with standup cabin is designed for handling pallets, lengthy goods and medium-weight loads (up to 2700 kg), for example in DIY stores or at profile or window production plants. This all-purpose device can be used as a frontloader, sideloader and narrow-aisle truck. The large-sized elastic tyres enable use in both indoor and outdoor areas, even on difficult surfaces.

"As a market leader in the area of specialist electric multidirectional sideloaders, we set ourselves challenging goals in terms of development and we gave ourselves the goal of setting new standards in this segment, focused on the requirements of our customers," comments Ralf Jestädt, looking back on the nine-month development phase. As a result the DS 27 sets new records: for example, thanks to the high-performance steering system, the three-wheel universal sideloader from Hubtex offers the fastest available direction switchover times between lengthwise drive, crosswise drive, diagonal drive and circle drive. This enables more precise  maneuvering and faster positioning of the load when compared with standard vehicles that do not allow for diagonal drive. The DS 27, as a genuine multidirectional sideloader, therefore offers clear advantages over nominally multidirectional four-way sideloaders and it can be used to achieve a more efficient work flow. The DS 27 also offers the best all-round visibility in its class and sound-optimised assemblies reduce noise emissions to a minimum.

Additional outstanding features increase the comfort and safety of the driver: Instead of a deadman button, a contact plate has been installed in the cabin floor of the DS 27, which increases the driver’s freedom of movement. The low entry height of 420 mm enables the driver to get on and off the vehicle quickly. All the hydraulic functions are controlled using clearly arranged operating elements. The adjustable backrest contributes to ensuring work is fatigue-free. Hubtex’s in-house-produced sturdy lift masts with internal, protected hydraulics ensure large reserves of load capacity. „The DS is a vehicle for the current age in every respect. With its complete package of flexible application options and outstanding price/performance ratio, it sets new standards among three-wheel sideloaders," says Ralf Jestädt in summary. According to Ralf Jestädt there is also another vehicle on the way in this market segment.
