Gen III Cab Technology
Featuring 360-degree curved glass; a floating control console; a spacious working environment and an active carbon-filtration system, Gen III cab technology has been designed to boost visibility, comfort and precision, and enable operators to work longer, harder and safer.
The new design is the culmination of an intensive research and development programme and delivers a suite of benefits, including:
The most striking feature is the innovative new curved glass cab which delivers complete control by offering panoramic 360-degree visibility.
The cab has nine square metres of glass for unrivalled visibility and features an integrated sun visor and a dot-matrix sun shield which eliminates both glare and reflections.
Fully-adjustable large electric mirrors enhance visibility to the sides of the machine ensuring operators can monitor booms and manoeuvre safely in tight and challenging conditions.
Spacious working environment
The Gen III cab offers one of the most space-efficient working environments on the market, with three cubic metres of space and more than enough leg room for even the tallest operators.
The cab features a fully-adjustable steering column; room for multiple displays, a surprisingly comfortable ‘buddy’ seat, and document and item storage.
Entry to and from the vehicle is easy thanks to a wide-opening door with hydraulically retractable access steps, which feature an extension for high-clearance work.
A suite of new design features has been delivered to improve insulation and reduce the noise levels to just 72 decibels when working in the field, including:
- A new rear panel with four-layer external sound barrier to block noise and heat
- Internal sound-absorbing foam to the rear and sides with cloth covering
- A double-glazed rear window
- Internal roof lining electrostatically sprayed with a flocking material
- A bonded and sealed floor-mat to avoid noise leakage
- E-marked glass bonded to the side panels
- Lining added to the storage box
- Additional ‘fly-by-wire’ technology reduces entry points into the cab
Enhanced operator comfort
The cab is mounted on a state-of-the-art hydraulic suspension system which reduces noise and vibration for enhanced comfort and stability.
The KAB seating unit is the centre-piece of the cab with full lumbar support, a high backrest, generous seat-cushion, safety belts and a wealth of adjustment options.
Made by industry specialists and proven in the field, the seat features air-suspension to absorb excess vibration and reduce both side-to-side and front-and-rear motion when working in bumpy terrain.
A climate control system with six adjustable air vents and front and side demisting ensures operators can customise the temperature inside the cab to their personal preference.
Advanced controls and functionality
Kellands offers operators the best in precision and comfort with an innovative ‘floating’ control console which moves up and down with the chair to ensure the joystick and key control buttons are always in perfect alignment.
Designed to be simple to learn yet sophisticated in functionality, the controls feature an ergonomic layout which eases fatigue and ensures precise fingertip control.
