Introducing The Art Of Working Sideways
Baumann is a world-class manufacturer of sideloaders from three to 50 tonnes capacity - with a reputation for consistent innovation, and the highest level of design and productivity.
Our comprehensive range of sideloaders handle a multitude of products, typically considered long or bulky, and most commonly timber and steel.
Nevertheless, our machines are also specified to suit the demands and nuances of plastic, concrete and other manufacturing sectors.
And because we build machines to last, we value loyalty, longevity and experience very highly.
Based in Cavaion in Italy, our family-owned company has led the sector for over 50 years, allowing us to sell our products worldwide through 106 dealers in 76 countries.
Cavaion Veronese, near Verona, has been home to Baumann since 1969, with the factory more than tripling in size over the years, as the company grew.
The location of ‘Cavaion Sideloaders Baumann’ was said to have been selected for its proximity to a renowned nearby technical school by owner, Wolfgang Baumann, who believes craftsmanship “permeates the local culture”.
Our machines can cope with almost anything you can throw at them. Their solid steel outreach cylinders and bearings can be up to 50% larger than any other sideloader on the market.
Our chassis are built to exacting standards, while our masts have a unique profile designed for the unique demands of working sideways.
Toughness is just one of the secrets to our success, helping our equipment to be known worldwide for its durability and reliability.
Baumann is also renowned as an innovator, especially in the important areas of safety, environment and productivity. That’s why we were twice winners of the Fork Lift Truck Association’s Excellence Awards.
We have a strong reputation for our ability to customise standard models around a customer’s specific needs as well as being a reliable and professional partner in after-sales and technical support.
Our panoramic operator cabs offer the very latest technology, efficient use of space and high levels of ergonomics. The driver not only benefits from comfort, but excellent visibility and machine status information.
We introduced a new method of traversing the mast, the Archimedes Outreach System and further enhanced this for even great durability and control with our Variable Reach System (VRS).
With VRS, the addition of a bespoke valve block, modified chassis and additional guide bar to increase inertia resistance has allowed us to double the Archimedes spindle thread size and corresponding number of bearings.
The result is a halving of the pressure required between the two, providing even greater accuracy and the ability to seal the spindle head to prevent contamination.
We also lead the field in electric sideloaders, today a hugely important development in the market. Our unique high voltage machines provide unrivalled durability, operational uptime zero-emissions and superb comfort.
It all adds up to an enviable package blending the perfect levels of innovation, productivity and durability.
