Figure 1-3 Cab and Pump Body Components - Left Side View
The cab is equipped with side windows of tempered safety plate glass and windshields of laminated glass.
Each windshield is provided with a pantograph-type wiper and washer assembly capable of maintaining 75% of the glass
area clear. To remove grime, cleaning fluid is sprayed into the wiper blade path from washer nozzles located on the
wiper arms. Windshield washer fluid is contained in two reservoirs located inside the cab. The wiper motors are air
driven with infinite speed control.
The cab is provided with a fluid-to-air heat exchanger mounted on the right hand side floor of the cab. Two
fans direct fresh air through the heater and air ducts to the windshield defroster louvers and/or floor outlets. Fluid to the
heater core is provided from the engine cooling system. Two fans mounted near the top of the windshield provide air
circulation in the cab.
Controls and indicators to operate the truck and firefighting systems are located inside the cab. Their
arrangement prevents interference with driver/crewmember entrance or exit from the cab. Refer to Chapter 2 for
operating details of the controls and indicators.
The lower left and right rear corners of the cab contain the battery compartment and fuel tank respectively.
The fuel tank compartment is equipped with a blower to cool the tank when firefighting in structural mode.
