Manitex is introducing a sleek, new cab for its boom truck line this week at ICUEE, October 4-6 in Louisville, Kentucky. The cab features curved glass for better visibility, a 0 to 20-degree cab tilt, a mini-van style automotive door and sliding windows on both sides of the cab.
The new Manitex cab features a heated cloth seat with eight seat adjustments, lumbar support and an adjustable head rest. It features a standard diesel-fired heater, a retractable sun screen and a rear, pop-out window. The cab was designed with a 12-volt DC outlet for cell phone chargers and features a cup holder.
New elements in the cab are a new electrical system, a new LMI system and a new hydraulic system. The electrical system features a PLC crane controller, CANBUS communication, J1939 truck engine communication compatibility and a new hand throttle in addition to the standard foot throttle.
The new LMI system features the Hirschmann/PAT iScout D3 system which includes a bright, 7-inch color display, two video camera inputs and screens for LMI, video cameras and an electronic level hour meter.
The new hydraulic system was redesigned for greater efficiency and relocated to the turret to allow for a more quiet cab.
Options on the new cab include an air-conditioner, work lights and a heavy duty stereo radio with weather band.
