Operators have an efficient and safe place to work from in the Spirit Delta cab. The particular design of the cab comes as a result of extensive study into the operators working conditions. The main goal is to provide optimum visibility with no forward corner posts and large glass areas unobstructed so as to keep the field of vision clear. The ergonomically designed instrument panel is extremely comfortable and gently rounded. This area has also been designed with an unobstructed clear view of all essential information, so as to keep the operator functioning as efficiently as possible.
Noise levels and vibration controls are kept low due to the insulated mounting on the chassis. In order to maintain an optimal working position, the hydraulic controls and operator seat are all independently adjustable. Moreover, the steering wheel and related panel is adjustable for utmost comfort. There are 2 easy to operate, multi-functioned ergonomically positioned levers that are offered for gear changing, windscreen wipers, the window washers and horn.
To ensure a comfy cab temperature for the operator, a ventilation/heating unit supplies incoming air which is replaced by an air filter. This is easily replaceable and the unit slides out afterwards to make serviceability an easy option. The equipment has a robust 3-speed fan for cooling, heating, recirculation and defrosting. As an additional option, air conditioning can be fitted.
In the Spirit Delta, the instrument panel has logically grouped units that are all within easy reach. Standard instrumentation includes: low engine and gearbox lubrication oil pressure, warning lamps, low brake pressure, high coolant temperature, high gearbox oil temperature and applied parking brake. Moreover, gauges display values for fuel quantity, operating time, gearbox oil pressure and engine coolant.
The ECS or also called Electronic Control System monitoring is among the important options on the 8 to 10 tonne trucks. These units make it easier to supervise the machinery. All of the monitoring functions are handled by the ECS and incorporated by this system. The full text display and the single warning lamp show any errors which take place and their current values.
