Operating concept

Tailored to users' needs.

The operating concept of the implement carrier has been tailored to the needs of its users: the multifunction steering wheel allows for a perfect grip and offers a clear view of the large and bright instrument cluster display. There, important information such as the oil level, air pressure or settings of the hydraulics system can be displayed. Driving functions such as changing gear, or actuating the engine brake (on the right) and the EasyDrive synergetic traction drive system (on the left) are integrated in the steering column controls. In the centre console users will find a removable multifunction joystick with which the working functions and working speeds can also be controlled. Operation is thus especially flexible and the user can control the system in accordance with their needs and desires.

What's more, there are many practical details to discover, including a CD radio with Bluetooth® hands-free system and additional stowage compartments.

Anyone spending longer periods of time in the new cab comes to appreciate the efficient air-conditioning and heating system: regardless of the weather, it ensures comfortable temperatures in the vehicle. What's more, in winter, the seat heating can be switched on. To allow work to start punctually there is a programmable auxiliary heating system. Heated windows and mirrors ensure clear vision right from the outset.

In the centre console, the new removable multifunction joystick can be used to control the working functions and working speed. It is also used to operate the synchronised Electronic Quick Reverse (EQR) reversing group.
