Side loaders usually have an electric, diesel or gas engine and are designed to transport and store long and bulky goods in tight spaces. The most common working areas for side loaders are in the woodworking and industries where long steel or plastic pipes need to be moved. The side lift is available with the driver\'s cab or with only the driver\'s seat. The side cart raises the goods with the side forks and supports this for transport on the so-called table - a support area of the goods on one side of the forklift. The common lateral lift has a lifting capacity of 1,000 - 50,000 kg with a lifting height of 3,000 - 8,000 mm.
Baumann, Combilift, Hubtex, Votex Bison, Bulmor and Fantuzzi are probably among the best known producers.
