Barrett Steel Go Electric

Barrett Steel Limited takes on a new delivery of the Baumann 120v ELX models.
Barrett Steel Limited, the UK’s largest steel stockholder, now has 20 brand new Baumann side loaders across all 32 depots with more waiting to come. Thanks to HSS (Handling & Storage Solutions) for publishing this in their magazine article, visit to read more.

This is a highly efficient and durable electric machine that can work in small spaces. The machine has a 120v power supply and 2.5 tonnes weight reduction which has increased battery performance by up to 30% and the saving in weight has allowed for a larger and smarter battery system.

The Bauman ELX is the first electric side holder that is under four metres. This creates a more practical way to move smaller amounts of steel without using a forklift. Electric vehicles are cost & noise saving, have better performance, lower maintenance, auto deck levelling, excellent over long distances and have zero emissions.

The Baumann ELX models will help Barrett Steel move forward with the delivery of our Net Zero Carbon Map. Our commitment is to be net zero carbon by 2035. To find out more information, visit
