Manitex is offering a redesigned cab for its boom truck line.

Manitex is introducing a sleek new cab for its boom truck line this week at ICUEE, October 4-6 in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. The cab has curved glass for better visibility, a 0 to 20-degree cab tilt, a mini-van style automotive door and sliding windows on both sides.

There is a heated seat with eight adjustments, lumbar support and an adjustable head rest. Fitted as standard are a diesel-fired heater, a retractable sun screen and a rear, pop-out window. A 12-volt DC power outlet is fitted for cell phone charging.

New elements in the cab are the electrical system, load moment indicator and a new hydraulic system. The electrical system includes 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 uses the Hirschmann/PAT iScout D3 system which includes a bright, 7-inch (180 mm) 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 give a quieter cab.

Options on the new cab include an air-conditioner, work lights and a heavy duty stereo radio with weather band.
