Bobcat's new teleandler cab is designed to make the operator more comfortable and give more visibility.

Bobcat, now a member of the newly formed global Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment Group, has introduced a new improved operator cab for the company's range of telescopic handlers.

The new cab aims to improve and modernise the operator's working environment and includes 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 help the operator quickly gain an overview of the working conditions and operating configurations. All data is placed in an easy to read format in front of the operator: 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 which are active.

The visibility of attachments has been increased by lowering the display and dashboard, improving the line of sight between the operator and the attachment.

The air conditioning unit is fully integrated into the dashboard. The number of directional air vents has been increased, ensuring an even distribution of air around the operator for a more homogeneous temperature throughout the cab.

A new continuous pull-down sun visor helps to give 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.
