Longley Concrete has purchased four Baumann GX 50 five-tonne side loaders for general duties, moving concrete floor beams within the company’s logistics operation, pulling out stock and loading distribution vehicles over an intensive six day a week programme. A single six-tonne Baumann GX60 model has been fitted with an airlift and is used for moving the specialist heavier products that the company makes.

It is the first time that Longley has bought from the Italian manufacturer. Director Roger Longley said: “We undertook a thorough evaluation of all the different manufacturers currently supplying the UK market and, 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.”
