Why should you use Cab Guards?

On many occasions, construction workers have returned to site to find their machines have been vandalised, or even stolen. As technology and equipment advances, individuals have discovered easy ways of protecting their equipment. Introducing the Masterhitch Cab Guards, that are the latest innovative product to ensure you arrive back to your excavators and other plant machinery.

What are Cab Guards?

Cab Guards are primarily used for the protection of excavators that are left overnight on a construction site, or to stop any damage happening to the windscreen of the digger.

They are made of British Standard Steel, which is perfect for longevity and makes them incredibly durable. Each cab guard is specifically designed to match the shape of the cab, which will vary depending on the brand of machine.

Due to the strong and robust design of the cab guards, they are becoming very popular, and are commonly seen on construction sites, and areas that are likely to be broken into. If you’re worried about leaving plant machinery on site, they are the ultimate plant accessory to protect them.

Advantages of using Cab Guards on a demolition site

Cab Guards would normally be used when a digger is left near or next to a quarry or anywhere that has unstable materials. They are not only useful in stopping vandals stealing equipment, they will also protect the windscreen from smashing, and causing damage from any falling rocks.

Advantages of using Cab Guards on a construction site

It is always a daunting feeling leaving diggers and other construction machinery on site, that is needed for long term projects. However, when construction companies choose to use cab guards it will offer peace of mind, and even potentially lower insurance costs.

We wouldn’t also advise leaving any valuables in the operator’s cab overnight, but if you really had to they would be safe with the help of the cab guards. All reputable machine manufacturers recommend investing in Cab Guards for machinery.
