Forest Steel Crane Hood is installed on a forest machine crane’s high seat to ensure your crane operator’s protection. Thanks to the high-strength aluminium profile and back piece, the hood weighs only 25 kg – making it the lightest on the market.
Compared to a classic crane cabin, a high seat weather protection hood is much more affordable saving the user an astonishing amount of money and time. Read more about advantages and why it is beneficial for you.
Do you lack a crane cabin? Buying a crane cabin needs a large financial investment and presents other flaws, such as poor visibility. Discover the easiest way to replace it with our unique high seat weather protection hood instead.
The blue-colored hood is suitable for almost all leading forest machine cranes, such as Loglift (Hiab), Kesla, Jonsered, Cranab, Epsilon etc. In addition, it is very easy to install on your high seat.
The crane operator usually sits outdoors without any weather protection. Because the crane hood is made of unique weatherproof material, it protects its user from all weather conditions – no matter if it’s sunny or windy, raining or snowing.
The use of a wind, snow and rain cover can be used only when there is a need for such and thus it is not necessary in good weather. This enhances user comfort, visibility and accessibility for the crane operator.
Imagine having ten forestry cranes and buying all of them ten cabins which will cost you around 200 000 euros in total. Now if you purchase the same amount of Forest Steel Crane Hoods – you provide protection for your workers at a 96,5% lower price!
Not to mention that all of these expensive cabins need window cleaners etc (roughly cost 1000 euros a year).
The less your crane’s overall weight, the more profitably it carries the timber. With our extremely lightweight crane hood you get a maximal payload per trip.
For example, with 1000 timber loads – you save up to 200 000 kg compared to a classic heavy-weighted cabin. More payload equals more profit!
