The latest edition to the Baumann product range is already going into production – but it’s a little more unusual than most.
We’re delighted to announce the arrival of the new Baumann carelifter, the next generation in ‘Ambulift’ – a purpose-built airport passenger transport vehicle for VIPs or people with reduced mobility.
Warmly welcomed at the launch event at the Airport Show in Dubai, we are now delighted to be looking at many projects all over the world. In keeping with Baumann’s innovative engineering, it builds on the award-winning Archimedes outreach system to provide a smoother, cheaper and faster way to board modern aircraft.
Lifting from ground level to 8 meters, with integrated suspension, multi-purpose use, and 4 steering wheels for maximum manouvrability, the carelifter offers 100KW Diesel engine for a speed up to 35km/h for ground support equipment operators.
Our starting point for carelifter was comfort and reliability. We saw a need for a high quality passenger cabin with lifting capacity from ground level up to 8,000mm. Something which offers easy access and great manouvrability to reach the airplane door.
Our previous experience in aircraft ground support and our work with industrial equipment gave us the insights to design the next generation ‘Ambulift’. One that gives precise control and maximum comfort within a small footprint (just 2500mm width, max 3600mm high in closed status and a flexible length).
- All wheel steer & integrated suspension.
- Space for 6 wheelchair passengers with assistants.
- Extremely compact, with a small turning radius.
- Comfortable, fast & smooth.
- Our philosophy of high service levels, world class industrial vehicles and reliable innovation neatly fits the needs of the airline and GSE industries.
We understand that safety and the punctual departure of the aircraft is paramount.
With a tighter turning circle, clearer view and smaller footprint, we believe the carelifter is the safest option available.
Four or three lifting columns with integrated suspensions makes the operation fast and smooth, whilst the hydraulic powered steering axle ensures continuos reliability and performance. Standard trucks are fitted with a Stage Final 4 Diesel engine, electric trucks upon request.
As a purpose-built machine, rather than an adapted commercial vehicle, Baumann is the only one to ensure the right level of engineering technology.
The design concept is not changed, adapted or compromised to achieve the right level of operability. The result is better value, a reliable service period and faster return on investment.
