The cabin can now turn 55 degrees from the centre to the side.
The optimal work area is 45 degrees. Thanks to this change, the operator always has an unobstructed view of the tree being processed. Also, the visibility through the side windows to the back wheels is better than before. The operator is centred in the cabin and has good visibility in all needed directions. The Logset philosophy is that once the operator grabs the operating levers, he can do everything with the machine without letting go.
By making changes in the cabin base design the turning angle of the cabin was increased with 10 degrees on each side. The harvester cabin turns with the help of two cylinders, just like before. The big difference is that now the cylinders are attached to the same centre pin, not two separate pins like before. Thanks to the cylinders, the turning of the cabin is smooth, precise, and quiet. There is a magnetic sensor placed underneath the cabin inside the bearing. The sensor identifies the turning angle of the cabin.
The sensor is the same that Logset uses for the knives on the harvester head. This makes it easier to get spare parts when needed. Behind the cabin there is a new storage space for saw bars. The storage space can be locked, and it fits saw bars of over 100 cm (39 in). Source
