New Operator Seat Dampens Vibration Automatically

One of vehicle seating specialist Grammer’s recent product developments, the Actimo Evolution seat—unveiled in 2006 and available in versions for wheel loaders and dump trucks with controls on the left, or for excavators with the controls in front and an interface for connecting a lever console—has been joined by the MSG97EAC/742, a seat with dynamically controlled suspension designed for use in excavators, wheel loaders and trucks. The seat includes an innovative electronic system that controls the vertical suspension to effectively dampen vibrations and ease back strain. The system cuts vibrations by up to 40% when compared with conventional air-suspended seats, according to the company. The MSG97EAC/742 also automatically adjusts to the operator’s weight.
