Case IH unveiled its upgraded Surveyor cab last year with the launch of its new Steiger and Magnum tractors. The hallmark of the new cab is a new MultiControl armrest designed by farmers. The control arm gives the operator fingertip control of six key functions: engine throttle, up/down shift, forward/reverse shuttle, hydraulic remote valves, 3-pt. hitch and the automatic end-of-row function. Autoguidance is controlled from an optional AFS Pro 700 display.

Controls that used to be located in the middle of the headliner have been moved to the right so that the operator doesn’t have to reach as much to adjust heating, air conditioning or the sound system.

To reduce jarring and bouncing during fieldwork, cabs can now be optionally equipped with a suspended cab that stabilizes front-to-back, side-to-side and up-and-down motions with four torsion springs on each corner of the cab.

Case IH says the inside of the tractor cab “is about as quiet as the inside of a sedan on the highway” so you can listen to the radio or use a mobile phone while driving. Elevated footrests let you stretch your legs. Storage has been added along with extra outlets to accommodate cellphones, laptops and MP3 players. Other enhancements include frameless cab doors and latching mechanisms, staircase steps, wall-to-wall carpeting and a high-performance leather seat that swivels 40 degrees for a clear view of the implement.
