Cab with a view

Written by  Mark Daniel

KUHN's VISIOSPACE cab offers the largest window surface area and best field of vision on the market.

Self-propelled mixer wagons offer the advantages of being able to load, cut, mix and feed livestock rations, all with the same machine.

As a result, the extended use of such machines means users are expecting increased comfort, ergonomics and visibility.

Since early 2019, KUHN has been installing the new generation VISIOSPACE cabs on all self-propelled SPV and SPW single and twin vertical auger mixers.

The VISIOSPACE cab satisfies several expectations: cab offers the largest window surface area and best field of vision on the market.

From right to left, the driver has a 360° panoramic view, making it particularly suitable for users who operate livestock buildings or tight confines.

Featuring a layout that has no visual obstacles at the foot of the cab, the driver is allowed a clear view of the milling head at the bottom of the silage clamp or when loading fibre bales.

Downtime is reduced as the driver can easily assess the distances and see clumps of fodder that may cause a potential blockage issue for the machine.

With feeding typically carried out at the beginning or end of the day, the ventilation and heating system capacities have been increased by 50% and 30% respectively same generous dimensions of the first generation, are retained for spaciousness, and accessibility.

To service a wide range of users, the VISIOSPACE cab is available in Standard, Edition and Attractive specifications.
