The long life, rigid-mount design with eight-bolt pattern is compatible with the manufac- turer's PH-400 pintel hook plus Premier 2400, 100-4, and 470 models. Backed by a two-year warranty, the PH-405 can be used with or without air chamber. — SAF-Holland, Muskegon, Mich., SAF-HOLLAND | PINTLE HOOK The company unveiled a new cab concept at World of Concrete, shown on a Charger model but geared for its entire front discharge mixer series. The cab is designed as a mobile workspace to enhance the total driver experience; its interior has strategic placement of controls in logical groupings and within easy reach of the operator. Engineers have also added storage space and more charging ports for elec- tronic accessories.
