The all-steel cab of the Grove RT500C also has its share of notable features. It comes with acoustical lining, tinted safety glass, and a comfortable operator’s seat that comes with crane controls integrated into the armrest. It also comes with a telescoping tilt steering wheel, air fan, windshield washer and wiper, and, even, an ashtray.

There are also a bunch of options available for those looking to push this rough-terrain crane a bit further. Options like: boom-mounted work lights, an engine block heater, hook blocks, a high-speed glide system, air conditioning, and an auxiliary hoist.
