Cervus Equipment has taken delivery of the first high-performance electric sideloader in Canada, the Baumann ELX50. The newly arrived model is the most compact of its kind, measuring less than 13 ft. (3.96 m) in length and 30 in. (0.76 m) in deck height. "We've had a great reception from customers here and the future looks amazing," says Baumann Canada president Jason Reynolds. The compact AC-powered electric ELX50 is described as a highly efficient and durable electric machine capable of efficiently working in small spaces. The ELX50 was designed and built from the ground up, following two years of research and development, and features a completely new chassis, battery and powertrain configuration. The low deck height allows customers to utilise racking under 3 ft. (1 m) at the second row height, maximising storage capacities inside and out. Based in Cavaion, Italy, family-owned Baumann is an industry leader in sideloaders, which are sold through 106 dealers in 76 countries. Cervus Equipment operates agricultural, transportation and materials handling equipment dealerships and has interests in 63 dealerships in Canada, New Zealand and Australia, employing more than 1,500 people.
