Welcome To The Art Of Working Sideways

Baumann is a business 50 years in the making. We are delighted to share with you the hard work and innovations that make our sideloaders the best in the world.

The Sideloader Concept

Sideloaders are perfect for handling long loads, such as timber, steel, pipes and concrete.

Safety is a huge factor, keeping loads secure and eliminating dangerous situations from arising, such as when forklift operators travel with forks raised. Other features include…

  • Efficient, intelligent and tough

  • From under four metres in length

  • Amazing work-cycles

  • Auto-deck levelling

  • Excellent over long distances

“these are the best… short on space these will blow your mind!”

Rick Skage, Cervus Equipment

“We have acquired different handling equipment and different handling methods over time, and we looked for a way to bring this together in the most appropriate way. Without doubt, Baumann sideloaders proved effective and reliable and give us the flexibility we need to work efficiently and safely. The equipment quality is there to see, and when you are working with steel, it needs to be up to the job.”

Paul Burke, Barrett Steel

“The Baumanns are more robust and operator-friendly and offer much better build quality. You can see that the operators are a lot more in tune with the machine. The door interlock is a good safety feature… the masts are better, the operator cabin is excellent…”

Mark White, Caunton Engineering

“Baumannn’s customer focused attention to detail has ensured that we have got peace in mind and reassurance with this deal, which is essential when making such a long term capital investment.”

Paul Mossop, Jackson Timber

“We undertook a thorough evaluation of all the different manufacturers… on balance, we found that Baumann were the best choice for us, as it was clear that they put real emphasis on the quality of manufacture and product reliability.”

Roger Longley, Longley Concrete Group

“Since we switched our buying policy to Baumann for the first time over four years ago, we have been extremely happy with the overall performance of their side loaders. Product reliability is excellent and the overall Baumann approach in addressing our business requirements is first class.”

Mike Gerrard, Metsä Wood

“We looked very closely at potential alternative manufacturers… specifically build quality and design… we were particularly impressed by the build quality of Baumann sideloaders.”

Andy Mayne, Millbank Concrete

“We felt that the Baumann sideloaders would give us the fuel saving, reliability and robust design for operation at our very busy 6 acre site… at all times, they were extremely focused and keen to fully meet our requirements.”

Paul Kavanagh, GE Robinsons

“The Baumann HX40 is ideal for our business. It easily manoeuvres our raw materials, especially the awkward 2 tonne packs of 7.5metre steel lengths, from which we manufacture our stillages and it keeps our manufacturing processes fully supplied.”

Jonny Patoff, Burgess Engineering

I’ve been driving the above truck for the last 3 weeks now and to be fair it has surprised me just how good of a truck it is I would definitely recommend electric but Baumann is the way to go. They’re the strongest, best built, side loader I’ve driven to date, and I’ve been doing this for 23 years now

Podge, Yard Supervisor, Lynx Precast Concrete


Baumann is a world-class manufacturer with a reputation for consistent innovation, and the highest level of design and productivity.

“We have our own unloading facility,” says head of logistics, Henri van der Pot, “but we go as close to the water’s edge as possible to maximise the available space. We have nowhere to grow.”

Raised Deck Option Added

Lower decks usually mean improved storage density, however certain customers may use the deck as part of their picking operations where a higher deck is preferable. Now both options are available.

“Our business is based on long-term thinking, problem-solving, true partnerships and commitment. Nothing quite beats the feeling of knowing you’ve helped a customer do things better.”

Wolfgang Baumann, Co-Founder
