HUBTEX ELECTRIC HEAVY-DUTY COMPACT FORKLIFTS: STRONG, ROBUST AND EXTREMELY MANEUVERABLE
Heavy loads are often transported by frontloaders. But when space is limited, these trucks quickly reach their limits due to their vehicle length. a robustHUBTEX’s RoxX heavy-duty compact forklifts offer and maneuverable solution. The development is based on a cooperation between HUBTEX and Dimos. The two international manufacturers of industrial trucks have been collaborating on new products and solutions for intralogistics since the end of 2017. One result of this successful cooperation is the new RoxX heavy-duty compact forklift, which, in various series, facilitates the handling of load capacities from 8 to 30 tons in confined spaces. All vehicles in this family have sturdy, robust lift masts and offer maximum maneuverability as well as optimum all-round visibility from the driver’s cab.
MAXIMUM MANEUVERABILITY WITH PATENTED STEERING
Whether coils, reels of paper, converters or tools – the new RoxX series from HUBTEX will transport these loads safely and reliably. The vehicle is very maneuverable and suitable for use both indoors and outdoors. The compact design of the RoxX offers significant advantages over conventional frontloaders: it is up to 25% narrower and around 20% shorter with the same load capacity. There are two steering systems available for the RoxX. An electro-hydraulic steering system with one steering axle is fitted as standard. Further space savings can be achieved with the optional electric steering system. A new, patented single-wheel steering system significantly reduces the turning circle, resulting in an additional space saving of 50% in the turning radius compared with standard steering. In this case, the pivot point of the vehicle is ideally located at the center of the drive axle.
The design of the lift mast plays an extremely important role with our RoxX. On the one hand, the lift mast must be able to lift heavy loads and move safely, on the other hand, it must not restrict the driver’s view.
For optimum flexibility, the lift mast is available in various versions. Beginning with a 2-stage Simplex lift mast (standard model) with a lift height of 3400 mm, to a 2-stage lift mast with full free lift (Duplex) and a 3-stage lift mast with full free lift (Triplex). All models can tilt from -5° to +5°. HUBTEX will also design additional lift mast solutions to meet your individual requirements.
Our RoxX has a purely electric drive, offering 30% increased efficiency compared to vehicles with an electro-hydrostatic drive.
Since there are no maintenance-intensive hydraulic devices, the service costs are reduced in addition to the low energy consumption. The modular design of the heavy-duty compact forklift also guarantees optimum access for maintenance and repair purposes. In addition, the driver’s cab can be easily folded down for servicing, enabling fast response times and ease of maintenance. Any battery changes that may be required are easy to carry out thanks to the fork pockets on the battery and a mechanical locking mechanism .
