Konecranes Generation C Optima Cabin Delivers Exceptional Design and Productivity.

13 January 2017

Konecranes Optima cabin provides optimal levels of comfort to the operator.

When you step inside Konecranes Generation C Cabin – OPTIMA, you are greeted with an expanse of ‘best-in-class’ cabin space. Whether seated within a Konecranes forklift, reach stacker or empty container handler, the view of the world outside is complimented by superior visibility due to very large, lowered windows with no corner posts. Overhead is a slim but very strong roof cross member and curved panels are a design feature.

Konecranes Optima cabin provides outstanding visibility to the operator.

Safety first overrides the design of the C-series and the driver’s sightlines are unobstructed to allow excellent visibility to key working areas which are clear both in front, to the sides, and to the rear.

A more ergonomic layout with integrated seat-mounted controls means that you work in functional comfort with more space provided for foot pedal operation. Instrumentation has been moved from the driver’s left side to his right and above his seat, where it is conveniently accessible.

The interior of the OPTIMA cabin can be customised to suit your exact operational needs. Apart from positioning the driver’s seat, which features compressor suspension for extra comfort and support, you can select mini-wheel steering, lever steering and prioritise the instrumentation that you need. United can also customise the cabin further by installing extra equipment should it be required within the instrumentation panel for your business.

Konecranes Optima offers best-in-class spaciousness and ergonomics.

An electronic joystick control is available as standard with auto accelerator/power control on Konecranes Reach Stackers and Container Handlers. The lifting levers also offer super-smooth and effortless touch control at every point of a handling operation on Konecranes Forklifts.

While at work driver comfort is assured by an efficient HVAC (heating, ventilation and air condition) system which offers a 50% overall capacity improvement on previous models.



The cabin also features the industry’s first 7” touch screen colour display which provides full truck monitoring including eco-drive, fuel management and a personal driver login. The touch screen monitor also supports an optional integrated rear-view camera and tyre pressure monitoring.

The C-Series is highly intelligent and sophisticated. The complete range of lift trucks features an Electronic Machine Control system (ECM). This is a management system that incorporates a comprehensive list of monitoring functions designed to assist in maximising productivity through the efficiency of vehicle and operator performance. Further software can also be integrated within the ECM system to include Konecranes world class fleet management system TruConnect.
