Cab protection for excavator
2011 | HT Engineering Ltd | New Zeeland 6 min read
The cab of an excavator is used in high-risk environments that require proper protection against heavy materials.
By utilizing Advanced High Strength Steel in a newly designed cage, HT Engineering has been able to improve both the driver's field of vision, as well as protection. The design is lighter and can better withstand shock. This is achieved by using thin flat bars in the cage, which are angled for maximum visibility.
