  • Electric Models

      • ELX Range 120v 3 to 5 tonnes

      • ELX Electric Sideloaders - Designed & built from the ground up

          • Compact, lightweight, intelligent.

          • The compact AC powered electric ELX is predicted to change the European market for sideloaders. The goal was to produce a highly efficient and durable electric machine capable of efficiently working in small spaces.

            Creating a smaller, lightweight chassis, involved designing a series of angled sections to provide stiffness and stability, without excess weight 2.5 tonnes lower than a conventional engine machine. A new steering axle was developed with extra weight added, providing a lower centre of gravity.
            • Efficient, intelligent and tough
            • Under four metres in length
            • Amazing work-cycles
          • Key Features 

          • ZERO EMISSIONS
            In developing the ELX range the goal was to produce a highly efficient and durable machine capable of working in demanding applications. Electrics offer zero emissions, are cheaper to run and maintain, as well as offering a better operator environment. Noise and cost savings will also benefit long-established companies which have seen towns grow up around them, and are under pressure to cut emissions and noise pollution by neighbours and legislators.

            INNOVATIVE HYDRAULIC SYSTEM
            The Baumann ELX Series utilises a bespoke steering axle & flow matching hydraulic system. Through closed-loop control, the hydraulic pressure is adjusted depending on the load, saving energy and improving efficiency.

             30% INCREASED BATTERY PERFORMANCE
            The innovations, 120v power supply & 2.5 tonnes weight reduction have increased battery performance by up to 30%.

            AC WIRING SCHEMATIC
            The huge saving in weight allows a larger, ‘intelligent’ battery system, created specifically for Baumann in a bespoke arrangement. This in turn is supplemented by a new AC wiring schematic, featuring individual cables directly connected to each component to provide maximum efficiency.

            IMPROVED TURNING CIRCLE
            The reduced length & improved turning circle have been achieved without sacrificing the mast or well width, clearance & low bed height.
          • The Range: Mid-Sized, Compact

          • The ELX was launched following two years of painstaking research, & features an intelligent battery system, redesigned chassis, new wiring schematic, bespoke steering axle & flow matching hydraulic system. This the most compact model ever produced, measuring less than four metres in length & 750mm in deck height.

              OUTREACH SYSTEM
              The Baumann EGX Series utilises the direct drive Archimedes screw to extend the fork carriage, whilst preventing transverse movements and eliminating unnecessary stresses. The worm gear system and rollers can work only in combination, which means ideal results each time, and the maximum working speeds – results never before reached. The system is low in maintenance and simple in design, with a high level of engineering and durability to ensure greater safety, smoother control and perfectly synchronised outreach for highly accurate and efficient load control.

              DUAL DRIVE MOTORS
              The EGX has two drive motors and larger capacity / longer run time 120v battery, offering the longest running hours in its class.

              AUTO STABILIZING SYSTEM
              Once the platform is fixed in the horizontal position, the load remains stable even on uneven ground.
            • The Range: Mid-Sized, Heavy Duty

            • Our most popular sideloaders are some of out most advanced, performing superbly over long shifts and greater distances. The 120v electric EGX offers high speeds speeds and long battery life, with capacities from 5 to 8 tonnes.

              • Changes in materials and advances in toughened glass allowed us to reconfigure the glass panel on the new cabin. An extremely thorough testing process requires major structural improvements, such as new cabins to be tested to destruction, with the results held in storage for at least a decade. The result is a more sturdy design, together with more sensitive control via a new hydraulic system.

                The new design was tested by applying large amounts of pressure to the roof. The aim was to provide an improved view and outstanding protection without sacrificing the build quality and durability for which the brand is renowned.

                          ABOVE DECK ENGINE
                          The above-deck engine means easier servicing, maintenance and excellent productivity. By not being connected directly to the chassis, the engine is also protected from any unnecessary vibration. The complete engine and drive assembly is mounted in an individual tray for ease of maintenance and to ensure a lower centre of gravity thus greater stability at higher lift heights.

                          BESPOKE MASTS
                          Baumann masts are specifically designed for sideloader applications. The exact profile and angular mounted mast rollers have been selected to compensate for the axial and radial forces associated with sideloaders, resulting in safer handling and less maintenance. Visibility remains a strong factor, as does a free-lift facility to just below deck-height. Special free-lift masts and triple masts are also available in a variety of permutations as an option.
