HUBTEX has presented a multidirectional counterbalance forklift featuring patented steering technology that goes by the name of FluX. The vehicle is available in two load-capacity classes – 3,000 kg and 4,000 kg – with a 48-volt power system and four-wheel chassis. It can be deployed as both a front and sideloader. It is especially suited to transporting both pallets and long objects.
In addition to its very high speed of up to 12 km/h, HUBTEX’s patented HX steering system also delivers major benefits. Thanks to the steering system installed as standard for the first time, the FluX can swiftly switch from travelling forwards to sideways without stopping, in a way that causes minimum wear and tear to the vehicle. Depending on how it is deployed, users can save a substantial amount of time, especially when the vehicle is used for handling both long objects and pallets. The process of loading and unloading trucks is also much quicker due to the lack of mast travel. With the vehicle featuring a system that automatically reduces its speed depending on the steering angle, users can safely travel at optimised speeds.
The structure of the frame is also new. The forklift features a compact frame measuring 1,850 mm or 1,950 mm in length, while offering substantial ground clearance of 150 mm. This enables pallets to be loaded simply, even at the end of aisles. The entry-level version of the forklift is available with a forklift carrier for long objects that spans the entire length of the frame. The carrier is also available in hydraulically adjustable form or with a lateral slider as optional extras.
