Wirtgen has upgraded the operator stations on its line of compact milling machines. The cabin protects the operator when working in all kinds of weather, according to the company.

Cabin air is cleaned by a filter system, and the temperature is controlled by an automatic air conditioning and heating system. It is designed as a positive-pressure system that prevents the ingress of dirt, dust, and hazardous materials. The cabin also has state-of-the-art control elements and assistance systems.

Ambient noise level is low, allowing for communication on the construction site: The operator can use a radio headset or open the easily accessible side window to talk with the crew on the ground.

The cabin and all control elements are protected against vandalism when it is closed and locked, according to the company.
