Last month, Spanish tower crane manufacturer Linden Comansa unveiled the design of its new cab at Vertikal Days, the U.K.’s largest cranes and access exposition. The new cabin, which is expected to be released this summer, features a square-shaped design with flat glass to reduce distortion and allow it to be easily replaced, if necessary.
“Our initial reaction was of surprise due to the absence of curved lines, quite common in the cab of most manufacturers,” said Trevor Jepson, owner of Linden Comansa dealer City Lifting. “But we loved it right away, even before seeing the inside, which is very bright and spacious. We wanted to show it at Vertikal Days to see the reaction of our customers ourselves.”
According to City Lifting, the main goals for the cab redesign were to reach the operator’s maximum comfort, while also creating total efficiency on the job. The company also displayed a Linden Comansa 16LC260-12t tower crane, which has a max lift capacity of 12 tonnes and a max jib length of 70m.
