The new standard sized cabin is also more spacious as its predecessor but it still has the smallest slewing radius on the market. The visibility has improved thanks to big window area and optimized relocation of the windshield wiper motor allowing 28 % larger wiping area. Switches and panels are located ergonomically and seat has enhanced adjustment features. The cabin is equipped with Grammer S722 seat as standard but air suspension seat, mechanical suspension or KAB T4 seats are available as an option – even with armrests.
Both cabins have in common improved air quality thanks to F5 air filter. Filter size is bigger, which ensures also the longer life time of it. Also F9 filter is available as accessory. Latter prevents bacteria and moulds from entering into cabin and is recommended especially for the chipper use. Both cabins are available with water or diesel heater. Also cooling is available. In the XL model the air conditioning can be installed on the roof or in the frame structure of the cabin. In standard size cabin the air conditioner is installed onto the roof.
