PONSSE ActiveFrame is available for PONSSE Ergo, Buffalo, Elephant and ElephantKing. Maximum angle of levelling in ElephantKing and Elephant is 6 degrees and in Ergo and Buffalo 7 degrees.
PONSSE ActiveFrame is a new cabin suspension system for 8-wheelers. It has a simple and functional structure, hydraulically suspending any sideways movement directed at the operator effectively and unnoticeably. As a result, driving is very comfortable and any stress on the body is much smaller than before.
The comfort of the operator is a key factor in terms of productivity and quality. When excess swaying does not stress the operator, the operator remains more alert and is able to focus on working, even during longer shifts. Working is smooth, improving both productivity and quality. The PONSSE ActiveFrame cabin suspension system eliminates any effects of uneven terrain keeping the cabin actively horizontal all the time so working with the loader and crane is more effective. Stable driving also allows the operator to use higher speeds.
PONSSE ActiveFrame is technologically close to the PONSSE Scorpion levelling system where separate sensors have been replaced by reliable components built in the control module. The machine has two pivot-mounted front frames, one of which includes the front bogie and the other includes the cabin. Thanks to the dual frame structure, the pivot point of the ActiveFrame suspension system is very low at the level of the bogie axle. This eliminates cabin shaking as efficiently as possible. ActiveFrame cabin suspension system eliminates any effects of uneven terrain by keeping the cabin actively horizontal.
