The FluX 45, HUBTEX's new electric multidirectional counterbalance forklift truck, stands out in the industry. With an impressive load capacity of up to 9,900 lbs, it surpasses its predecessor in both compactness and strength. This 2-in-1 forklift is a game-changer, offering a significantly safer alternative to traditional forklifts. It's perfect for customers handling pallets and long loads, providing a unique combination of compactness and high load capacity.

The ergonomics of the new FluX 45's cabin have been optimized to ensure maximum driving comfort.

Customers find the new FluX 45 multidirectional forklift particularly effective when they are mainly moving palletized loads, but regularly have to move long loads laterally. The forklift is primarily used in building materials centers or manufacturing companies in the plant and mechanical engineering industries. Conventional forklifts were traditionally used in these industries as they could optimally transport palletized loads. They were very popular with forklift drivers due to their excellent all-round visibility and handling characteristics. However, conventional forklifts sometimes encounter problems when transporting long loads. Conventional forklifts require wide aisles. There is also an increased risk of accidents because the surface of the long goods in contact with the lift truck is often too small or the long goods have to be lifted over obstacles.

The compact FluX 45 is the perfect solution when customers regularly move pallets and some long loads.

"Users must then decide whether to invest in a specialized sideloader. Given the short operating times, this often makes little economic sense. With the FluX 45, users benefit from a truck that can be used flexibly as both a forklift and sideloader, eliminating the need to invest in two vehicles. At the same time, the robustness and longevity of our forklifts significantly reduce the total cost of ownership," explains Michael Röbig, authorized representative and head of product management at HUBTEX.

Like all models in the FluX series, the new FluX 45 also boasts compact dimensions and high load capacity. The length of the truck has been reduced by 14 percent compared to its predecessor model, making it even more maneuverable. The lift mast with tilt function is another attractive feature. This allows the FluX 45 to be used like a forklift for loading and unloading trucks, for example, or alternately to be used as a sideloader for transporting long loads through narrow hall doors. At the same time, it ensures high safety on uneven surfaces, which is particularly advantageous when used outdoors. HUBTEX also incorporated higher ground clearance and larger tires during development to optimally equip the new FluX 45 for outdoor use.

Continuous steering and easy handling of long goods

Thanks to a low-noise and environmentally friendly electric drive and innovative 360° endless steering, the FluX 45 outperforms all other trucks regarding maneuverability, efficiency, and user-friendliness. This enables smooth changes in direction from lengthwise to crosswise travel without stopping. The cabin's ergonomics of the new FluX 45 have been optimized to ensure maximum driving comfort. All-round visibility was also a primary focus for HUBTEX during development. A central seating position, generously proportioned and low entry height, more compact lift masts, and optimized fork carriage with sideshift all help to improve visibility. There is a choice of enclosed exterior cabin or open interior cabin.
