IN THE CAB

Farms & Farm Machinery - - New Equipment Test -

This lit­tle loader has four gears for­ward and re­verse, and can re­ally get up and boo­gie at 80km/h in fourth gear.

It has a sim­ple dash lay­out at the front of the steer­ing wheel and has all con­trols lo­cated on the right-hand side of the ma­chine. There’s a sin­gle joy­stick con­trol which puts for­ward/re­verse, hoist/lower, bucket crowd and dump at your fin­ger­tips.

On the up­per side pan­elling is the air-con­di­tion­ing and ra­dio(s), top front is the load­out scales mon­i­tor screen (which re­lays in­for­ma­tion on the ex­act weight of each prod­uct to the op­er­a­tor), and on the lower right side are multi-12V/24V out­lets, ig­ni­tion switch, park brake, etc.

The 924K has a set of neat, un­com­pli­cated and easy-toiden­tify set of gauges and mon­i­tors, and of­fers op­er­a­tor­friendly con­trols and com­fort in a ma­chine de­liv­er­ing the goods for this ap­pli­ca­tion. Over­all, it’s a nice lit­tle setup in a well-glassed cabin with a pleas­ant de­sign and shape.

The fur­ther I look into this op­er­a­tion, the more I see that there is lit­tle dif­fer­ence between the agri­cul­tural, cat­tle feed­lot, con­struc­tion, min­ing or what­ever in­dus­tries re­quir­ing earth­mov­ing equip­ment. We all seek the same goals, and ma­chin­ery just hap­pens to be the com­mon de­nom­i­na­tor.
