2240-silo3-aDesign Storage & Handling Inc. is pleased to announce the introduction of a new 3-ton capacity HUBTEX multi-directional sideloader for the North American metal service center industry. The new MSU30 Series 2240-s is operable in guided aisles as narrow as 52.5” with a capacity of 6,600 lbs and lift heights approaching 360”. The MSU30 is available in multiple loadbed widths ranging from 24” to 72”.

Specifically designed in 2014 for the rigorous, multi-shift metal service center environment, the highly successful HUBTEX 2240 Series is further extended with the introduction of 2240-s, bringing the capacity range down from 5.5 to 3 metric tons. A combination of twin vertical AC drive unit technology and four-wheel, four-directional steering, exclusive to HUBTEX sideloaders, make the 2240 series the most productive and reliable sideloader on the market.

Ergonomically designed cabins have height adjustable operator controls, a 15” entrance height plus optimal all round visibility. All main driving and hydraulic functions are easily accessible with fingertip controls offering fully proportional lift/lower, mast reach and fork tilt, plus optional fork positioning and telescopic forks — all without moving the hand from the drive controls.
