The more spacious new cab was designed with operator safety and ergonomics in mind, while boasting 25 cubic feet more space than its predecessor. The 2014 STS is the first cab in the industry to offer a decal pedal, droplet size monitor, as well as an infinitely programmable drive system measuring field efficiency to optimize operator to machine performance. The new pressurized 2014 STS cab features the Sy-Klone RESPA air filtration system for the safest operator environment on the market. The 2014 can is also equipped with additional safety features including Bluetooth and a standard backup camera.
