I spent time on one of our KX25 ZTS mini diggers in the summer and hated every minute, mainly becaue it was roasting hot and i was even hotter in the cab due to you being sat right on top of the engine....not bad machines really just a bit juddery when tracking.

Yes Joe,

This is something I think manufacturers really need to improve !! Somehow they need to stop that heat getting into the cab area and all machines these days should have aircon like some of the Takeuchis do!

I think I might do a piece on this topic on the blog to see if they take note ??

yeh that would be a good idea, i still think its odd that jcb have A/C as an option not standard like on other manufacturers, I swear to god when i got out of the cab i was sweating like a beast, how could manufacturers stop heat getting into the cab, it could really be quite dangerous in really hot weather...i mean what would happen if the operator/driver fainted due to heat exhaustion or such thing...The s**t would hit the fan if theat happend.
