Sideloaders are, as their name suggests, trucks that operate by picking up their load from the side, from the perspective of the operator.
They are very good at handling wide (or long) loads that would otherwise be unstable on a conventional counterbalance machine. Sideloaders are excellent for handling lengthy materials such as timber, piping and sheets. This strength is also a weakness however, as they offer limited flexibility for handling more conventional loads.
