"We are a pioneer in custom program- mable chassis electronics and multiplexing and we continue to partner with end users and body builders to further increase productivity and make it easy to integrate with our system. "In many ways, we've designed the new HV Series from the inside out based on our Driver- First philosophy. Based on customer feedback during the planning and design process, our engineers succeeded in making the HV Series one of the most comfortable, reliable and safe vehicles to operate in any work environment and in any climate." DriverFirst enhancements that contribute to productivity, he adds, include: • Redesigned cab doors with a lower bottom glass edge and removal of vent window to give drivers a single large piece of glass to look through, greatly improving side visibility and reducing blind spots. • By reshaping the doors and side glass, the posi- tion of optional pedestal mirrors is optimized so drivers turn their heads 15 percent less on the left side and 5 percent less on the passenger side—making it easier to keep their eyes on the road while reducing neck strain. • An all-new dash designed for the driver with more space for additional rocker switches. • An available premium gauge cluster designed with driver input that is customizable with vir- tual gauges. • An easy-access, column-mounted stalk shifter integrated with engine braking to help keep hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. • "Wing panel dash" tailored for the vocational truck and driver. New stalk shifter placement and the lower instrument panel design greatly improve legroom, especially at the knee. An additional vent has been added to help keep the middle front passenger comfortable. • The dash contains space for up to 30 customiz- able switches ensuring functionality of any type of body that is mounted on the back. Switches offer large, easy to read text and recognizable ISO symbols; are back lit for easy viewing at night; and, offer seven unique indicator light color options. • New fuse panel is easy to service with no exposed wires. Spill proof design allows liquids to flow into a gutter around the panel and drain to the outside of the vehicle without damaging any electronics. — HVSeries HV507 HV607 FEATURE TRUCKS & COMPONENTS
