Elliott Equipment Company has designed and engineered an all new, hydraulically tilting crane cab that features integrated, proven, and trusted hydraulic pilot boom controls with the functionality of modern electronics.

Designed based on feedback from leaders in the crane industry, the cab boasts a new structural design with improved visibility, more leg room, and a more ergonomic control layout that includes a color display for optional controls, pressure and temperature gauges, diagnostics, and more. The control system includes a Hirschmann qScale LMI.

Access to the cab is enhanced by hydraulically extending ‘porch’ which provides a walkway for easy 360° entry and exit.

The cab tilts hydraulically up to 20° for improved operator comfort and ergonomics. New standard features include a heater, air conditioning, a heated seat, AM/FM Stereo with USB and AUX inputs, and USB charging ports.

Also new, the outriggers can be controlled from the operator's cab, eliminating the need for the operator to climb up and down to set up.
