At Plantworx 2017 Thwaites are delighted to announce the launch of a fully integrated manufactured cab solution for its 9-tonne forward tip, 6-tonne forward tip and 6-tonne powerswivel dumpers.
This new Level 2 ROPS and FOPS cab protects the operator with an engineered, reinforced structure, to reduce injury from machine overturn or falling objects.
Operators and on site personnel are further protected with the inclusion of a fully integrated camera system. Compliant to ISO 5006, and waterproof to IP67. This system provides the operator with 360 degree all round visibility.
Commenting on this innovative solution, Thwaites Engineering Manager Bob McElvogue said, “The inclusion of these critical safety features will significantly reduce the risk of site incident, accident or near miss. Having listened carefully to our customers, it was important that due consideration was applied to operator ergonomics. Our highly skilled and experienced engineering design team here at our Warwickshire manufacturing plant, have strategically developed and applied improvements to driver comfort, that will reduce operator fatigue and improve on site productivity”.
Operators of the new Thwaites cabbed dumper will now be able to work as effectively all year round with the following additional features fitted as standard:
The cab is finished with tinted side and rear glass to reduce solar gain for operator comfort and safety.
Operational optimisation is also enhanced further with a ‘pop out’, easy to replace modular glazing system.
A fully controllable cab heater and ventilation system with both dust and pollen filters to remove airborne irritants.
Further standard features include, a Bluetooth radio and a twin USB charging port improving connectivity on every level.
Daily maintenance checks can be achieved efficiently and effectively via a keyless, lockable panel.
Access and egress to the cab is safe and secure via three points of contact and an easy release door lock. Once inside the cab the operator will find a secure internal storage area for their personal belongings.
Manufactured entirely in the UK at Thwaites Leamington Spa engineering plant, this range of cabbed dumpers is available now from your nearest Thwaites dealer.
