JCB Hydradig cab upgrades gives boost to forward visibility
10 June 2019
JCB has enhanced the cab of the innovative Hydradig 110W wheeled tool carrier, to improve the operator experience, boost productivity and further reduce ownership costs. The front of the cab has been redesigned, with a 106mm increase in the windscreen top line, changing the split between upper and lower screens to a 63/37 split. This offers improved forward visibility, reflecting the wide range of attachments that customers are using with the Hydradig and the varied applications in which the machines are being used.
While moving the split line, JCB has also changed the front screen from curved to flat glazing, reducing replacement cost for customers. The front wiper motor is relocated to the bottom rail of the windscreen, for improved visibility when roading and to provide an increased wiper sweep across the glass. A second wiper arm can now be ordered as an option, to cover the lower glazed panel.
With the wiper motor moved from the top of the screen to the bottom and the additional height of the glass, the view to the front, particularly for lifting operations, has been greatly improved.
As part of the cab improvement, JCB has introduced a cab door with standard sliding window, for improved ventilation and to allow communication with workers at ground level. An optional sliding right hand side window will also be available for those that require this feature. Operators will also appreciate the adoption of a standard Stop/Start switch for the engine and the availability of increased document storage in the cab.
JCB has made its Intelligent Hydraulics system standard on the Hydradig 110W, allowing operators to programme the response from the servo levers to their individual requirements. The system can be retro-installed on existing machines, via a simple software update.
