Custom Products of Litchfield Inc., (Custom Products), the market leader in the cab enclosure and operator protection system industry, has partnered with Mahindra on the cab design of the new Max 26XL Shuttle and HST tractor models.
The Custom Products cab is an optional feature on select Mahindra Max 26XL models, and features operator comforts like a tip-out windshield, rear window and right-side window for increased ventilation. The cab also has a left-side door with locking door handle for increased security, as well as an easy-access switch panel with fuse block and LED dome light.
In addition to these comfort features, the all-steel welded ROPS cab ships fully assembled and is easy to install. The cab quickly attaches to the loader mounts and fits universally with loader, mower deck and snowblower attachments without the need for additional mounting kits.
“The cab on the Mahindra Max 26XL is the ideal solution for this range of product,” explains Scott Maki, Vice President of Development at Custom Products of Litchfield. “Operators will appreciate the robustness and simplicity that was engineered into the cab to keep them both safe and comfortable.”
Mahindra offers the cabs either delivered installed or for dealer installation as an option. The cab measures approximately 82 in. from the ground to the top (measurement may vary depending on tire size), and the shipping weight of the cab is 425 lbs.
“The all-weather comfort cab that can be added to the Max 26XL offers a new level of luxury to tractor operators,” explains Cleo Franklin, Vice President – Marketing & Strategic Planning for Mahindra USA. “The cab is an outstanding complement to an already remarkable machine. Mahindra has a steadfast commitment to quality equipment at the industry’s best value, and the cab system only further strengthens our value proposition.”
Additionally, a number of options can be integrated into the Mahindra Max 26XL cab, including a heater kit and defroster fan kit for cold weather operation, front and rear light work kits for increased visibility, and a warning beacon kit for optimized safety.
The unit was showcased at the 2014 GIE+EXPO in Louisville, KY, in the Custom Products of Litchfield booth (#9150) on October 22 to 23.
