Recently we provided a seating solution for our customer called Hoogendoorn Material BV based in Ouderkerk aan den Ijssel. Their driver has had significant back pain issues and needed some help to keep operating their Doosan excavator.
So we constructed a composite seat to provide an ergonomic solution for his needs and our skilled EBLO mechanic installed it on site. We used the heavy duty Grammer MSG97AL air suspension, an ASS seat upper with adjustable bolsters fitted to an ISRI 1000 seat tilt to achieve the optimum combination for the driver in this machine.
The ASS upper fitted with an adjustable air lumbar support, also has bolsters on the side and back that help support the driver’s back and sides when working on sloping surfaces.
The driver’s head is supported by a multi-adjustable headrest, and the driver can extend the seat cushion length as needed. The upper package is completed by the fitment of the seat belt to keep him safely in place.
To provide seat angle adjustment we have used the ISRI 1000 seat tilt with front controls, to get the best sitting angle and sitting height for use with the machine joysticks.
The extra wide Grammer air suspension provides stability, and has reinforced adjustable dampers to reduce large shocks from rough ground or when the machine is vibrating. It is also fitted with a horizontal isolator to reduce front to back vibration to a minimum.
