Comfort in the Driver´s Cabine in Every Season

Webasto develops efficient and economical heating and cooling solutions, that operation independently of the engine. The units prevent coldstarts as well as idling. Thereby, they reduce fuel consumption and the emission of pollutants. Concurrently the machine operator profits from a comfortably tempered work environment in every season; one important aspect with regard to productivity and safety.

Cold Outside – Webasto Inside


With its water heaters Thermo 50 (maximum heat capacity of 5 kW) and Thermo 90 ST (maximum heat capacity of 9.1 kW) Webasto ensures comfort in the driver´s cabin, even when it is cold.
