Not much fundamentally changes in materials handling but the patented Archimedes outreach system from Baumann is the most important innovation in sideloader design in 40 years!

The new Baumann GX Series utilises the direct drive Archimedes screw and sliding blocks, to extend the fork carriage, whilst preventing transverse movements and eliminating unnecessary stresses.

The system means greater sensitivity and consistent control, and the maximum working speeds results never before reached.

The achievement was rightly recognised in the shortlist of the 2016 Forklift Truck Association Awards for Excellence.
