Tilting driver's cab

Problems

When stackers with the driver's cab located at ground level are used for stacking of and retrieval from high-level racks, the operator must look upwards for long periods in order to monitor the operation. At increasing view heights and longer durations, this static head posture quickly becomes unpleasant, and may be harmful to health when exposure is sustained.

Stress category

Solution

A tilting driver's cab assists in reducing the necessary angle of head inclination. Such a cab inclines to the rear as a function of the lift height. This results in the driver's body also being inclined to the rear and the required neck angle being reduced.

Principle of operation

  • Adjustment of the location and orientation of controls to the task in hand (in this case: observing of work at a height)
