Hubtex has updated its DQ 45-X multidirectional sideloader to include a new low-noise, low-emissions turbo engine. The sideloader features three drive modes - Eco, Sensitive and Speed - to reduce energy consumption. Hubtex boasts a fuel consumption reduction to 4.8 l per operating hour, compared to the 6 l consumed by the previous model during factory testing. The core component of the DQ 45-X is the turbo engine with reduced exhaust emissions and noise from Hatz. This engine includes an oxidation catalytic converter and diesel particulate filter that meets the criteria of the EURO Stage V and EPA Tier 4 final emissions standards. Emissions have been reduced by up to 30% compared to the previous engine. The exterior of the vehicle has also been given a bit of a make-over to improve space, visibility and comfort. In addition, Hubtex has reduced blind spots when reversing by improving the design of the left rear cab pillar. The standard version of the DQ 45-X now includes a larger display, which shows the most important operating states and features a touchscreen. The display is now easier to use and can also be used as a monitor for camera attachments.
