Keep a warm and comfortable cab.

Flush-mount helper’s side heaters with strip heater control.

Reliable-running and efficient, our ME617 Series helper’s side heaters are designed specifically for retrofit applications. Temperature control throughout the cab is all within easy reach. In addition to normal controls, there is also a built-in control switch for a strip heater, as well as circuit breakers for both the cab heater and strip heater. Having all controls in the unit greatly simplifies wiring in the cab, saving hours of labor in one installation.
