The MHL390 F with new Fuchs® cabin, won the prestigious iF Design this year. Germany’s oldest independent design organization, Hannover-based iF International Forum Design, holds the design awards, which are recognized throughout the world.

The Fox Cab has been specially designed for material handling machines and was designed without compromise. This provides the user with great benefits in terms of ergonomics
