The cab of this motor grader is characterised by a five-pillar structure featuring a special single C-pillar, which allows a 320-degree field of view. The hood is made of lightweight, impact-resistant composite and can be raised at an angle of 50 degrees for improved service access. Looking over the hood, the driver can see the entire rear end of the machine, while the exhaust and pre-cleaner are aligned with the C-pillar to fall into the natural blind spot behind the driver’s head. The shape of the blade carrier and the narrow A-pillars have also been configured to improve the visibility to the front.
