Welcome to the SIDEWINDER Historical Website

Airtrax was the original designer and developer of the first commercially produced Omni-Directional Lift Truck in the world, the ATX-3000.


Airtrax introduced this amazing vehicle concept in 2000, manufactured it from September 2005 until March of 2006, and marketed it until 2008 when the company ceased all operations. Airtrax prototyped several other types of vehicles including the COBRA line of Aerial Work Platforms, but none of those were ever produced or sold.


Vehicle Technologies, Inc. resumed production of the ATX-3000 under license in 2010. and suspended production in June of 2013


The SIDEWINDER is no longer produced new, and is only available

in the used Lift Truck Market, or as refurbished units from Vetex.

If you have a used SIDEWINDER to offer to the market place, let us know and we will post it on the "Trading Block" Page.


Vehicle Technologies continues to provide replacement parts for the SIDEWINDER as well as refurbishing used machines.
