New cab for Bobcat telehandler range
Bobcat, a member of the newly formed global Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment Group, have introduced a new improved operator cab for the company’s range of telescopic handlers.
The new cab offers several significant changes aimed at improving and modernizing the operator’s working environment, including an improved dashboard, a fully integrated air-conditioning system and a sturdier steering wheel for easier handling and control.
The dashboard has been redesigned to ensure the operator can quickly gain an overview of the working conditions and operating configurations. All data is conveniently placed in front of the operator and is easy to read. This includes all operational mode indicators, which are shown in the top part of the display. The control switches on the display have been enhanced to improve visibility and ease of use. Backlit switches illuminate each function and the activation light indicates when a function is in use so the operator can easily monitor all functions that are active.
The visibility of attachments has been increased by lowering the display and dashboard, thereby improving the line of sight between the operator and the attachment.
The air-conditioning unit is fully integrated into the dashboard. It features well placed air outlets throughout the cab, providing an increased total airflow of over 40% to 500m3/h. The number of directional air vents has been increased, ensuring an even distribution of air around the operator. The improved circulation of air ensures a more homogeneous temperature throughout the cab.
A new sun visor offers protection for the operator. The continuous pull-down system provides the operator a variable and wider range of protection, giving better visibility of the work environment and instrumentation, even in full sunlight conditions. The exterior lights have been upgraded to provide a more focused beam of light for improved visibility of the working environment.
