As you know, forklift drivers come in all shapes and sizes, and a cabin that feels good and fits perfectly for one operator may be completely wrong for another.
It’s obvious that comfort plays a huge part in ensuring safety and keeping productivity high. So why shouldn’t you treat this as a priority? Especially when you consider that the driver takes up the majority of a truck’s total cost of operation.
That’s why you should seriously consider how much your truck’s cabin can be adjusted and customized to the individual driver. Features like adjustable steering wheels, floor heights, armrests and seats can seriously improve a truck’s ergonomics, regardless of who is driving it. Just see how large the range of adjustment can be in the video.
Trucks with this level of customisation allow drivers to feel comfortable and reduce injuries, allowing them to focus on the job at hand, and making your life easier.
