Cab and Controls

 

 
THE QUIET, SPACIOUS CAB
 
The FR series forage harvesters are your home away from home. With 360° panoramic visibility, the FR Forage Cruiser has your back. This cab is designed specifically for chopping with a rear window that gives you eyes-in-the-back-of-your-head-visibility. Wide curved windows offer a perfect view of the header and to the spout regardless of position. The sculpted, glazed side-door panels naturally follow the spout’s unloading arc for a clear line of sight during discharge. You can adjust the electric mirrors from the comfort of your seat to get the exact views you want, and you can manage up to three viewing cameras through the IntelliView™ IV monitor.
 
DESIGNED FOR YOUR COMFORT AND ERGONOMIC OPERATION
 
The relaxing air-suspended operator seat features multiple adjustments to conform to most any preference to guarantee the utmost comfort during long harvesting days. The right-hand console is suspended with the seat and moves with it, but can also be adjusted for/aft independently for perfect positioning.
 
YOUR CONTROL CENTER EFFORTLESSLY MAXIMIZES PERFORMANCE
 
Intelligent and intuitive Forage Cruiser automation saves time and enhances harvesting performance. The CommandGrip™ multi-function lever is your direct link to FR control. It lets you manage all key machine operating parameters including header controls, spout engagement and Power Cruise™ activation. Less frequently used functions are laid out logically on the right-hand console for easy access when needed. You can analyse machine functions at a glance courtesy of the colour IntelliView™ IV monitor.
 
LIGHTING THAT’S EASY TO CONTROL
 
Lighting soft touch control pad with an outline of the harvester makes it easy to select which lights you want to use. A master off switch allows all of them to be turned off at the end of the night, but remembers the combination that was on the next time lights are needed.
 
AUTOMATIC CLIMATE CONTROL
 
Automatic climate control (optional on FR480, standard on larger models) features infinite control of fan speed and cabin temperature, and maintains your desired temperature automatically, all day long.
