The improved operators cab is applicable to all G-Series drive-to-tree feller bunchers.
On the outside of the cab, the work lights have been moved into enclosures in the cab structure to protect them from falling trees and limbs. LED lights improve reliability and brightness compared to the previous halogen models. The new lights also produce a more even light pattern that provides better coverage around the machine. High output LED lights are also available as an option.
Tigercat machines are well-known to have good visibility from the cab. However, even this has been improved upon with the front window being almost 10% larger. This combined with Tigercat’s low-profile boom structure, provides good visibility to the front. The rear quarter windows are more than 20% larger, resulting in the view over the back tires being the best in the industry. This is also very important during thinning operations. The air suspension seat now has pull-through ventilation which moves hot, humid air away from the operator’s legs and back, producing a cooling effect. For colder weather, the seat is also heated. The new seat can be adjusted 5 cm (2 in) wider than the previous seat. The electronic control display module now has an adjustable mount so that the operator can position it for optimal visibility. Frequently used controls have been integrated into the joystick pods to make them easier to reach.
Air-conditioning and heating vents have been repositioned to improve cooling and heating. There is now a more even distribution of air to the operator and better defrosting. Front window and skylight shades help to reduce heat build-up when working in bright sunshine. Cab insulation and interior finishing have also been improved. The working noise level is now 76 decibels, which is similar to an automobile on the highway. The new cab also has a full range of accessories for operator comfort. The cab includes 12 and 24 volt power sockets, two large cup holders, a cell phone holder and two USB ports that can be used for charging phones or tablets. A CB radio is optional. The audio system provides AM/FM, weather band and Bluetooth for hands-free calling and audio streaming from mobile devices. Source: http://www.tigercat.com/g-series-feller-buncher-cab/
