Konecranes increases roof height with updated cabin

Konecranes uses OPTIMA optimal cabin in order to increase roof height. Specifically, the Finnish port equipment manufacturer offers a new option for forklifts that increases roof height by 125 mm.

OPTIMA optimal cabin's visibility is due to large, lowered windows with no corner posts, so sightlines to key working areas are unobstructed, and cameras provide multiple angles.

The Electronic Machine Control (EMC) Master allows full monitoring of all vital components and functions on an advanced touch screen with programmable settings and an electronic joystick in an intuitive panel layout for maximum control.

Also, plenty of space allows the driver ease of movement from a comfortable seat with compressor suspension and rear adjustment, while temperature controls and sound absorption give shielding from extreme weather, noise and other environmental hazards in the work area.

According to Koncranes, from the fourth quarter of 2022, customers will be able to purchase the new product.

The added height offers even more space for improved comfort and allows the driver to wear a helmet while operating the truck, as well as the installation of cabin extras such as equipment brackets, auxiliary lighting, and additional electrical sockets.

The new feature will be available on all Konecranes 10-60 ton forklift trucks, including the Konecranes E-VER electric forklift.

"While the cabin has high structural integrity to protect drivers at all times, the helmet is an extra safety precaution when operating the truck in dangerous work environments. And because they can wear a helmet while driving, they don’t have to remember to put it back on when exiting the truck," commented Anders Sjöstrand, commercial product manager, Lift Trucks, Konecranes.

Additionally, the taller cabin can be modified with any of the OPTIMA customisations to suit specific operational needs, while a turnable seat provides an easy change of view, armrest mini-steering or lever steering facilitate driving, and a fully-tailored control panel can accommodate extra requirements.
