HUBTEX FluX 30 and FluX 40
Visitors at the LogiMAT 2017 trade fair will have the opportunity to find out more about the latest development from Hubtex in Hall 8 at exhibition stand 8B02. As FluX is suitable for use both indoors and outdoors, users benefit from the vehicle's high level of flexibility and a time-saving of roughly 20 percent.

The electric multidirectional sideloader FluX is a talented all-rounder that helps you to master the transportation of bulky or long items in narrow aisles. Thanks to its multidirectional steering, the vehicle is able to transport long items in a sideways direction, just like a multidirectional forklift. Furthermore, FluX can also be used as a traditional frontloader in crosswise drive mode for the handling of palettes. The series-produced and patented steering system HX offers a considerable time-saving due to its fluid transition from longitudinal to crosswise drive mode. It also enables even long items to be transported quickly and without any interruptions. The permanent all-wheel steering ensures that FluX has the smallest turning radiuses in all directions. The FluX is available with load-capacity classes of 3,000 kg or 4,000 kg, with driving speeds of up to 12 km/h for the electric drive in both lateral and longitudinal drive mode. In contrast with the combined use of a frontloader and sideloader, users benefit from a time-saving of roughly 20 percent with the new counterbalance forklift.

Ergonomics in focus
A central aspect of the new forklift is the simple and ergonomic operability of FluX. The vehicle offers the driver the highest degree of all-round visibility in its class when transporting and loading goods in aisleways. It is operated via a steering wheel and joystick as well as a multi-functional screen that displays all the relevant equipment information. In order to provide the driver as ergonomic a working space as possible, a hydraulic automatic levelling function ensures the four-wheel chassis maintains permanent contact with the ground. This reduces vibration and boosts driver comfort. In addition, the vehicle's battery capacity is designed for a long service life. Thanks to its elastic tyres, FluX is ideal for combined use both indoors and outdoors: users thus save time and profit from labour-efficient handling.
