Operator Cabin

The drivers or operators cab encloses the operators position and all necessary instrumentation required for the safe operation of the vehicle.  Forklift trucks with an operators compartment and lift height over 70" require a cabin. This area protects against injury from falling objects as well as provide a safe zone in the unlikely event of an accident where the vehicle is upended.

Operator cabin may contain:

  • overhead guard driver protection
  • weather protection
