Recently, a CIT built cab was featured on the MCFA website and in Mystic Seaport’s video entitled “Mystic Seaport’s Long History with Lift Trucks.” Check out the video below to see a CIT cab in action.

Visibility, safety, better operator experience plus a lot more

In case you missed it, CIT is back with The Cab of The Future 2.0. More features, more benefits – and intensive design thinking that has resulted in improving operator performance and experience. So whether you’re in the construction, material handling, industry or utility markets – this is very positive news for you! Especially since this cab can be customized for your industry and operators. Now that’s innovation!

Why is this important or why should you care?

As Jay Atkinson, the Head of Design at CIT put it – “for many years cab enclosures have started with a box. So, when you add features such as glass, doors and control – you’re just refining a flawed approach. We didn’t want slight improvements to the old paradigm. We wanted real innovation. Who wants more features on something that has significant limitations to begin with?”

Our design team started with creating an ideal operator experience that is based on real customer / operator complaints. This is the foundation of our innovative approach to creating The Cab of The Future 2.0.

Here are the 9 benefits  (you’ll call them advantages):

  1. Better safety and efficiency
  2. Better load visibility
  3. Overhead escape door which is an additional exit point for operator
  4. Ability to see overhead through the escape door
  5. Better overall ventilation
  6. More comfortable environment for the operator
  7. Take it out of the crate, mount and plug it in. No additional installation needed
  8. Customize the cab specifically for your industry/operators
  9. More finished look to cab side

And…*drum roll* we will be debuting the cab of the future at CONEXPO 2017 in Las Vegas on March 7 – 11, 2017Booth 22621
