    FACT SHEET Cab FM-XHSL

    FEATURES AND BENEFITS

    The FM-XHSL, Globetrotter LXL, is a sleeper cab with extra height developed for national or international long haul and distribution transports.

    The cab offers a very high level of comfort with ideal driving posi- tion, ergonomically designed seats, low noise level, high capacity climate control system and a world class safety level.

    The Globetrotter LXL cab is aerodynamically designed with smooth surfaces and rounded corners in the front. Tailored airflow systems and complete chassis skirts additionally lowers the air resistance.

    Service points that require the drivers attention are easily ac- cessible behind a hatch at the front of the cab.

    Service and repairs of components in the engine compartment are simplified thanks to a generous cab tilt angle of 70°.
