Lamma 2015: Cab-Tech Developments shows its new cab

Cab-Tech Developments (Stand 508) hopes to see operators of self-propelled sprayers, combines and harvesters for a range of crops occupying its new cab in future.

The company normally builds bespoke cabs to suit the particular requirements of original equipment manufacturers – such as the units supplied for the Househam Merlin and Chafer Multidrive self-propelled sprayers.

But the pre-designed 8400 Series cab offers a modern solution ready for agricultural applications worldwide and fully equipped to drop directly on to an OEM production line and plug into a vehicle’s control systems.

It will be one of four different cabs on show at Lamma.

The new design has a large, wrap-around windscreen for maximum forwards visibility, two large side doors with “A” or “B” post hinging, a large, curved rear window with a single, central roof support, and a one-piece, forward-hinged GRP roof moulding with built-in stay rod and GPS fixing plate.

Forward- and rear-facing work lights, orange warning lights, positive pressure air blowers and a climate-control air conditioning and heating system are among the built-in features.
