Cab updates add operator comfort on John Deere knuckleboom loaders
Cabs can be equipped with features such as heated seats, Bluetooth, and storage coolers
John Deere has updated its E-Series knuckleboom loaders with new features designed to boost operator comfort. Driven by customer feedback, the 337E and 437E models incorporate a redesigned operator station that is built to reduce noise and heat within the cab, while also including several options that increase comfort throughout the day. The new features, which build upon the fuel efficiency improvements introduced in 2019, provide customers with comfortable solutions for the loaders' operation.
One of the most notable changes on the updated E-Series machines is the removal of the rear and left back windows, reducing the heat load inside the cab and improving operator comfort. Additionally, the removal of the rear window helps to lower noise levels in the cab. Each cab can be equipped with several comfort-boosting options, such as a heated, ventilated seat; a premium radio package, including Bluetooth; a cell phone holder with power supply; or an in-cab storage cooler. Three lighting packages are available to help provide visibility in low-light conditions.
