New cab for track feller bunchers

CAT FOREST PRODUCTS recently announced updates to the cab on the track feller buncher line, including the Cat 511, 521, 522, 532, 541, 551, and 552.

The changes improve operator comfort and safety and machine durability. A full-size sliding window on the left side of the cab allows more fresh air into the cab. The escape hatch above the operator’s head has a new quick release latch system to allow fast exit in an emergency. The operator just grabs and flips the latch to pop the escape hatch open.

The window mounting brackets and hardware have been strengthened to prevent damage from falling debris, and the design simplified to eliminate potential leaks into the cab. The sheet metal of the HVAC filter intake cover was also strengthened and thickened to prevent damage. The work lights have stronger guards and steel bar protectors to prevent breakage and improve illumination of the work area.
