Summary of the Invention


Technical Problem



[0004] The operator of a work vehicle operates a work implement or drives the vehicle while observing the area around the vehicle. Therefore, a good field of vision is desired for a work vehicle. On the other hand, the shape of the vehicle body cover affects the field of view. For example, blind spots can be reduced and the field of view can be improved by providing a portion of the vehicle body cover with an inclined shape.

[0005] However, when the abovementioned ventilation holes are provided in the inclined vehicle body cover, water from rain and the like may enter the inside of the vehicle body cover from the ventilation holes. As the inclination angle with respect to the vertical direction of the vehicle body cover increases, the field of view can be correspondingly improved. However, there is a problem that in doing so water is more likely to enter through the ventilation holes.

[0006] An object of the present invention is to provide a work vehicle and a vehicle body cover having good ventilation and an improved field of view while suppressing the intrusion of water to the inside of the vehicle.

Solution to Problem



[0007] According to a first aspect of the present invention a work vehicle comprises a cab, an engine room having a vehicle body cover and disposed to the rear of the cab, an engine disposed inside the engine room, a first exhaust processing device disposed over the engine, and a second exhaust processing device disposed over the engine. The vehicle body cover comprises an outside ventilation cover part and an inside ventilation cover part. The outside ventilation cover part has outside ventilation holes that communicate with an external space. The outside ventilation cover part is disposed in an inclined manner with respect to the vertical direction. The inside ventilation cover part is disposed so as to face the outside ventilation holes on the inside of the outside ventilation cover part. The inside ventilation cover part has a rain gutter part and a ventilation part. The rain gutter part is configured so as to receive water entering from the outside ventilation holes. The ventilation part has inside ventilation holes that communicate with a space on the inside of the inside ventilation cover part. The ventilation part is disposed above the rain gutter part.

[0008] The outside ventilation cover part is disposed in an inclined manner with respect to the vertical direction in the vehicle body cover of the work vehicle according to the present embodiment. Accordingly, the field of view can be improved. Moreover, outdoor air is able to pass through the outside ventilation holes of the outside ventilation cover part and the inside ventilation holes of the ventilation part and flow to the inside of the vehicle body cover. Alternatively, air inside the vehicle body cover is able to pass through the inside ventilation holes of the ventilation part and the outside ventilation holes of the outside ventilation cover part to flow out to the outside of the vehicle body cover. As a result, good ventilation can be achieved. Furthermore, even if water enters from the outside ventilation holes, the water is received by the rain gutter part. Because the ventilation part is disposed above the rain gutter part, even if water enters from the outside ventilation holes, the water is not likely to enter through the inside ventilation holes of the ventilation part. As a result, the intrusion of water inside the vehicle body cover can be suppressed.

[0009] The outside ventilation cover part preferably has an inclined surface part that includes the outside ventilation holes and an eave part that covers the outside ventilation holes from the outside. In this case, the intrusion of water from the outside ventilation holes can be suppressed.

[0010] The inclined surface part and the eave part are preferably formed in an integrated manner. In this case, the outside ventilation cover part can be formed easily with press manufacturing for example.

[0011] The rain gutter part is preferably disposed so as to overlap the outside ventilation holes as seen in a plan view. In this case, water entering from the outside ventilation holes can be easily received by the rain gutter part.

[0012] The ventilation part is preferably disposed so as to overlap the outside ventilation holes as seen in the horizontal direction. In this case, even if water enters from the outside ventilation holes, the water is less likely to enter through the inside ventilation holes of the ventilation part. Moreover, ventilation can be improved because the air can pass easily through the outside ventilation holes and the inside ventilation holes.

[0013]  The outside ventilation cover part preferably has a draining hole that communicates with a space between the rain gutter part and the outside ventilation cover part. In this case, water that enters from the outside ventilation hole and is received by the rain gutter part can be discharged easily to the outside through the draining hole.

[0014] The rain gutter part is preferably disposed so as to be inclined downward toward the outside ventilation cover part. In this case, water that enters from the outside ventilation hole and is received by the rain gutter part can be discharged easily to the outside through the draining hole.

[0015] The space between the outside ventilation cover part and the inside ventilation cover part is preferably open at the side surfaces of the outside ventilation cover part and the inside ventilation cover part. In this case, the space between the outside ventilation cover part and the inside ventilation cover part can be accessed easily from the openings at the side surfaces of the outside ventilation cover part and the inside ventilation cover part. As a result, maintenance performance of the vehicle body cover can be improved. For example, a nozzle for cleaning can be easily inserted into the space between the outside ventilation cover part and the inside ventilation cover part from the opening. As a result, foreign matter that enters the space between the outside ventilation cover part and the inside ventilation cover part can be easily removed.

[0016] The ventilation part preferably has a plurality of ventilation holes that includes the inside ventilation holes. In this case, ventilation can be further improved.

[0017] The inside ventilation cover part preferably further has a guiding member connected to the inside ventilation hole. The guiding member guides the flow of air through the inside ventilation holes to the inside of the inside ventilation cover part. In this case, outdoor air can be led to a desired location by the guiding member. For example, by guiding air with the guiding member to a device that requires cooling, the device can be cooled effectively.

[0018] A plate-like member is preferably further disposed between the outside ventilation hole and the inside ventilation hole. In this case, even if water enters from the outside ventilation holes, the plate-like member functions as a baffle plate and the water is less likely to enter through the inside ventilation holes. As a result, the intrusion of water to the inside of the vehicle body cover can be suppressed even if the size of the inside ventilation holes is increased. Ventilation can be improved by increasing the size of the inside ventilation holes. As a result, by guiding more air to a device that requires cooling for example, the device can be cooled more effectively.

[0019] The vehicle body cover is preferably further provided with a first exterior cover. The first exterior cover has an opening and is disposed in an inclined manner with respect to the vertical direction. The first exterior cover is preferably separate from the outside ventilation cover part. The outside ventilation cover part and the inside ventilation cover part are preferably integrated with each other to be configured as a ventilation cover unit. The ventilation cover unit is preferably attached to the first exterior cover and closes the opening.

[0020] In this case, the inside ventilation cover part and the outside ventilation cover part can be detached from the vehicle body easily by detaching the ventilation cover unit from the first exterior cover. As a result, maintenance performance can be improved.

[0021] The vehicle body cover is preferably further provided with a second exterior cover. The second exterior cover is disposed under the outside ventilation cover part and is disposed in an inclined manner with respect to the vertical direction. The inclination angle with respect to the vertical direction of the outside ventilation cover part is preferably greater than the inclination angle with respect to the vertical direction of the second exterior cover.

[0022] In this case, the inclination angle with respect to the vertical direction of the outside ventilation cover part disposed above the second exterior cover is larger than the inclination angle with respect to the vertical direction of the second exterior cover. In this case, the field of view can be further improved.

[0023] The work vehicle according to the present embodiment has good ventilation and an improved field of view while suppressing the intrusion of water to the inside of the vehicle.

[0024] The vehicle body cover is preferably attached to a side surface part disposed in an inclined manner of a ceiling cover of the engine room.

[0025] In this case, the temperature inside the engine room can be reduced due to the proper ventilation of the engine room. Moreover, even if the size of the engine room is increased in order to increase the size of the space inside the engine room, the outside ventilation cover part is disposed in an inclined manner with respect to the vertical direction whereby a good field of view can be achieved. Moreover, the intrusion of water to the inside of the engine room can be suppressed by the inside ventilation cover part even if the outside ventilation cover part is inclined.

Effects of Invention



[0026] According to the present invention, good ventilation and an improved field of view can be achieved while suppressing the intrusion of water to the inside of the vehicle in the vehicle body cover of the work vehicle.

[0065] The first outside ventilation cover part 64 has a lower side surface part 68. The lower side surface part 68 is positioned under the inclined surface part 66. The lower side surface part 68 is connected to the inclined surface part 66. The first outside ventilation cover part 64 has a shape that is bent between the lower side surface part 68 and the inclined surface part 66. The inclination angle with respect to the vertical direction of the lower side surface part 68 may be less than the inclination angle with respect to the vertical direction of the inclined surface part 66. The inclination angle with respect to the vertical direction of the lower side surface part 68 is the same as the inclination angle with respect to the vertical direction of the upper side cover part 332 of the abovementioned first side cover 33.

[0066] As illustrated in FIG. 9, the first inside ventilation cover part 65 is attached to the inner surface of the first outside ventilation cover part 64. The first inside ventilation cover part 65 is disposed facing the outside ventilation holes 642, 643, and 644 of the first outside ventilation cover part 64 on the inside of the first outside ventilation cover part 64. The first inside ventilation cover part 65 has a perforated plate member 71 and a spot cooling member 72. "Inside" refers to the direction toward the inside of the vehicle body.

[0067] The perforated plate member 71 is disposed so as to cover a portion of the outside ventilation holes 642, 643, and 644 on the inside of the first outside ventilation cover part 64. The spot cooling member 72 is disposed so as to cover the remainder of the outside ventilation holes 642, 643, and 644 on the inside of the first outside ventilation cover part 64. Specifically, the perforated plate member 71 is disposed so as to cover the plurality of first outside ventilation holes 642 and the plurality of second outside ventilation holes 643 on the inside of the first outside ventilation cover part 64. As illustrated in FIG. 11, the spot cooling member 72 is disposed so as to cover the plurality of third outside ventilation holes 644 on the inside of the first outside ventilation cover part 64.

[0068] As illustrated in FIG. 10, the perforated plate member 71 has a rain gutter part 73 and a ventilation part 74. The rain gutter part 73 is configured so as to receive water that enters from the first outside ventilation holes 642 and the second outside ventilation holes 643. The rain gutter part 73 is disposed so as to overlap the first outside ventilation holes 642 and the second outside ventilation holes 643 as seen in a plan view. The rain gutter part 73 is disposed so as to be inclined downward toward the first outside ventilation cover part 64. The lower edge part of the rain gutter part 73 is connected to the first outside ventilation cover part 64. Specifically, the lower edge part of the rain gutter part 73 is connected to the lower side surface part 68 of the first outside ventilation cover part 64.

[0069] The rain gutter part 73 has an upper rain gutter part 731 and a lower rain gutter part 732. The lower edge part of the upper rain gutter part 731 is connected to the upper edge part of the lower rain gutter part 732. The rain gutter part 73 has a shape that bends between the upper rain gutter part 731 and the lower rain gutter part 732. The upper rain gutter part 731 and the lower rain gutter part 732 are disposed so as to be inclined downward toward the first outside ventilation cover part 64. The inclination angle with respect to the vertical direction of the upper rain gutter part 731 is greater than the inclination angle with respect to the vertical direction of the lower rain gutter part 732.

[0070] The abovementioned first outside ventilation cover part 64 has a draining hole 645 that communicates with a space between the rain gutter part 73 and the first outside ventilation cover part 64. The draining hole 645 communicates with a space between the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the rain gutter part 73. The draining hole 645 is disposed so as to face the rain gutter part 73. Specifically, the draining hole 645 is disposed so as the face the lower rain gutter part 732.

[0071] As illustrated in FIG. 7, a groove 75 that extends in the vehicle front-back direction is provided between the first side cover 33 and the first side surface part 43. The groove 75 is disposed between the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the first side cover 33. The draining hole 645 is disposed near the groove 75. Water discharged from the draining hole 645 flows through the groove 75 toward the front or the rear of the vehicle. As a result, the first side cover 33 is prevented from becoming dirty due to the water being discharged from the draining hole 645. A groove 76 is similarly provided between the second side cover 34 and the second side surface part 44.

[0072] As illustrated in FIG. 10, the ventilation part 74 is disposed above the rain gutter part 73. The lower edge part of the ventilation part 74 is connected to the upper edge part of the rain gutter part 73. The ventilation part 74 has a plurality of inside ventilation holes 741 that communicate with a space on the inside of the first inside ventilation cover part 65. For example, the plurality of inside ventilation holes 741 are punched holes that are punctured in the plate-like ventilation part 74. The ventilation part 74 is disposed so as to overlap the first outside ventilation holes 642 and the second outside ventilation holes 643 as seen in a horizontal view. The reference numeral 741 is attached to only one of the plurality of inside ventilation holes 741 in the drawings, and reference numerals are omitted for the other inside ventilation holes 741.

[0073] The ventilation part 74 is inclined with respect to the vertical direction. The ventilation part 74 is disposed so as to be inclined downward toward the first outside ventilation cover part 64. The inclination angle with respect to the vertical direction of the ventilation part 74 is smaller than the inclination angle with respect to the vertical direction of the upper rain gutter part 731. Therefore, the first inside ventilation cover part 65 has a shape that is bent between the ventilation part 74 and the rain gutter part 73.

[0074] As illustrated in FIG. 9, the space between the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the first inside ventilation cover part 65 is open at the side surfaces of the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the first inside ventilation cover part 65. However, the lower part of the opening on the side surfaces of the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the first inside ventilation cover part 65 is closed by a closing member 77. Specifically as illustrated in FIG. 10, the side of the space between the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the lower rain gutter part 732 is closed by the closing member 77. The closing member 77 may be formed in an integrated manner with the rain gutter part 73 by a bending process.

[0075] As illustrated in FIG. 9, the first inside ventilation cover part 65 has a first connecting part 78 and a second connecting part 79. The first connecting part 78 and the second connecting part 79 are connected to the first outside ventilation cover part 64. The first connecting part 78 and the second connecting part 79 protrude from the upper edge part of the ventilation part 74. The first connecting part 78 and the second connecting part 79 are disposed at an interval in the vehicle front-back direction. As a result, the space between the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the first inside ventilation cover part 65 opens upward between the first connecting part 78 and the second connecting part 79.

[0076]  As illustrated in FIG. 11, the spot cooling member 72 has a rain gutter part 81 and a ventilation part 82. The rain gutter part 81 is configured so as to receive water that enters from the third outside ventilation holes 644. The rain gutter part 81 is disposed so as to overlap the third outside ventilation holes 644 as seen in a plan view. The rain gutter part 81 is disposed so as to be inclined downward toward the first outside ventilation cover part 64. The lower edge part of the rain gutter part 81 is connected to the first outside ventilation cover part 64. Specifically, the lower edge part of the rain gutter part 81 is connected to the lower side surface part 68 of the first outside ventilation cover part 64. The rain gutter part 81 is disposed so as to face the abovementioned draining hole 645. The draining hole 645 communicates with the space between the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the rain gutter part 81.

[0077] The ventilation part 82 is disposed above the rain gutter part 81. The lower edge part of the ventilation part 82 is connected to the upper edge part of the rain gutter part 81. The ventilation part 82 is disposed so as to overlap the third outside ventilation holes 644 as seen in the horizontal direction. The ventilation part 82 has an inside ventilation hole 821 that communicates with the space on the inside of the first inside ventilation cover part 65. The number of inside ventilation holes 821 in the spot cooling member 72 in the present embodiment is one. The inside ventilation hole 821 of the spot cooling member 72 is larger than the inside ventilation holes 741 of the perforated plate member 71.

[0078] The ventilation part 82 is inclined with respect to the vertical direction. The ventilation part 82 is disposed so as to be inclined downward toward the first outside ventilation cover part 64. The inclination angle with respect to the vertical direction of the ventilation part 82 is smaller than the inclination angle with respect to the vertical direction of the rain gutter part 81. The ventilation part 82 of the spot cooling member 72 is longer in the up-down direction than the ventilation part 74 of the perforated plate member 71.

[0079] The spot cooling member 72 has a guiding member 83. The guiding member 83 is connected to the inside ventilation hole 821. The guiding member 83 protrudes to the inside of the first inside ventilation cover part 65 from the ventilation part 82. The guiding member 83 has a tube-like shape. The guiding member 83 guides the flow of air that passes through the inside ventilation hole 821 into the engine room 7. Specifically as illustrated in FIGS. 4 and 7, the guiding member 83 is disposed so as to face a reducing agent injection device 54. The guiding member 83 guides the flow of air from the inside ventilation hole 821 toward the reducing agent injection device 54.

[0080] The spot cooling member 72 has a plate-like member (baffle plate) 84. The plate-like member 84 is positioned between the spot cooling member 72 and the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and is disposed between the third outside ventilation holes 644 and the inside ventilation hole 821. The plate-like member 84 is disposed over the inside ventilation hole 821. The plate-like member 84 overlaps the inside ventilation hole 821 as seen in a plan view.

[0081] The spot cooling member 72 closes the upward, downward and both side directions of the space between the spot cooling member 72 and the first outside ventilation cover part 64. Therefore, the space between the spot cooling member 72 and the first outside ventilation cover part 64 communicates with the space inside the engine room 7 through only the inside ventilation hole 821.

[0082] As illustrated in FIG. 6, the second ventilation cover unit 57 is attached to the second side surface part 44 and closes a second opening 46. The second ventilation cover unit 57 is attached to the second side surface part 44 in a detachable manner. For example, the second ventilation cover unit 57 is attached to the second side surface part 44 with a fastening member such as a bolt. FIG. 12 is a perspective view of the second ventilation cover unit 57 as seen from the inside. The second ventilation cover unit 57 has a second outside ventilation cover part 85 and a second inside ventilation cover part 86. The second outside ventilation cover part 85 and the second inside ventilation cover part 86 are integrated with each other.

[0083]  The second outside ventilation cover part 85 has a plurality of outside ventilation holes 852, 853, and 854. Specifically, the second outside ventilation cover part 85 has a plurality of first outside ventilation holes 852, a plurality of second outside ventilation holes 853, and a plurality of third outside ventilation holes 854. The plurality of first outside ventilation holes 852, the plurality of second outside ventilation holes 853, and the plurality of third outside ventilation holes 854 in the second outside ventilation cover part 85 correspond respectively to the plurality of first outside ventilation holes 642, the plurality of second outside ventilation holes 643, and the plurality of third outside ventilation holes 644 in the first outside ventilation cover part 64. The second outside ventilation cover part 85 has the same shape as the first outside ventilation cover part 64 except that the shape has left-right symmetry. As a result, a detailed explanation of the second outside ventilation cover part 85 is omitted.

[0084] The second inside ventilation cover part 86 does not have the structure corresponding to the spot cooling member 72 of the first inside ventilation cover part 65, but is configured only with the same structure as the perforated plate member 71 of the first inside ventilation cover part 65. The second inside ventilation cover part 86 has a rain gutter part 87 and a ventilation part 88.

[0085] The rain gutter part 87 is configured to receive water that enters from the outside ventilation holes 852, 853, and 854. The rain gutter part 87 is configured in the same way as the rain gutter part 73 of the first inside ventilation cover part 65.

[0086] The ventilation part 88 is disposed so as to cover the outside ventilation holes 852, 853, and 854. That is, the ventilation part 88 is disposed so as to cover the plurality of first outside ventilation holes 852, the plurality of second outside ventilation holes 853, and the plurality of third outside ventilation holes 854 on the inside of the second outside ventilation cover part 85. Other configurations of the second inside ventilation cover part 86 are the same as those of the perforated plate member 71 of the first inside ventilation cover part 65 and a detailed explanation is omitted.

[0087] The first side surface part 43 and the first outside ventilation cover part 64 of the ceiling cover 32 in the work vehicle according to the present embodiment as described above are disposed in an inclined manner with respect to the vertical direction. In particular, the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the first side surface part 43 of the ceiling cover 32 are inclined to a greater degree than the upper side cover part 332 of the first side cover 33 positioned therebelow. As a result, good visibility to the rear from the cab 6 is achieved.

[0088] Outdoor air enters the space between the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the first inside ventilation cover part 65 from the outside ventilation holes 642, 643, and 644 of the first outside ventilation cover part 64. The outdoor air that enters the space between the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the perforated plate member 71 from the first outside ventilation holes 642 and the second outside ventilation holes 643 passes through the plurality of inside ventilation holes 741 in the ventilation part 74 and flows into the engine room 7. As a result, the inside of the engine room 7 is ventilated and the temperature inside the engine room 7 can be reduced.

[0089] The outdoor air that enters the space between the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the spot cooling member 72 from the third outside ventilation holes 644 passes through the inside ventilation hole 821 in the ventilation part 82 and is guided by the guiding member 83 toward the reducing agent injection device 54. As a result, the reducing agent injection device 54 can be cooled in a concentrated manner.

[0090] Even if water enters from the first outside ventilation holes 642 and the second outside ventilation holes 643, the water is received by the rain gutter part 73. Because the ventilation part 74 is disposed above the rain gutter part 73 in the perforated plate member 71, even if water enters from the first outside ventilation holes 642 and the second outside ventilation holes 643, the water is not able to easily enter through the inside ventilation holes 741 of the ventilation part 74. As a result, the intrusion of water into the engine room 7 can be suppressed.

[0091] Similarly, even if water enters from the third outside ventilation holes 644, the water is received by the rain gutter part 81. Because the ventilation part 82 is disposed above the rain gutter part 81 in the spot cooling member 72, even if water enters from the third outside ventilation holes 644, the water is not able to easily enter through the inside ventilation hole 821 of the ventilation part 82. As a result, the intrusion of water into the engine room 7 can be suppressed.

[0092] In particular, because the inside ventilation hole 821 of the spot cooling member 72 is large, there is a concern that water can enter easily. However, the plate-like member 84 is disposed between the third outside ventilation holes 644 and the inside ventilation hole 821 in the spot cooling member 72. As a result, even if water enters through the third outside ventilation holes 644, the water is not able to easily enter into the inside ventilation hole 821 due to the plate-like member 84.

[0093] The water received by the rain gutter part 73 flows downward along the rain gutter part 73 and is discharged to the outside through the draining hole 645. The water received by the rain gutter part 81 flows downward along the rain gutter part 81 and is discharged to the outside through the draining hole 645. The water discharged from the draining hole 645 is discharged through the groove 75 between the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the first side cover 33. As a result, the first side cover 33 becoming dirty from water dripping onto the first side cover 33 can be suppressed.

[0094] The space between the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the first inside ventilation cover part 65 is open at the side surfaces of the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the first inside ventilation cover part 65. As a result, the space between the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the first inside ventilation cover part 65 can be accessed easily from the openings at the side surfaces of the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the first inside ventilation cover part 65. Consequently, the maintenance performance of the first ventilation cover unit 56 can be improved.

[0095] The first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the first inside ventilation cover part 65 are integrated with each other to configure the first ventilation cover unit 56. As a result, the first inside ventilation cover part 65 and the first outside ventilation cover part 64 can be easily detached from the vehicle by detaching the first ventilation cover unit 56 from the first side surface part 43. As a result, maintenance performance can be improved.

[0096] While the above explanation describes effects pertaining to the first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the first inside ventilation cover part 65 of the first ventilation cover unit 56, the same effects are demonstrated with the second outside ventilation cover part 85 and the second inside ventilation cover part 86 of the second ventilation cover unit 57.

[0097] Although an embodiment of the present invention has been described so far, the present invention is not limited to the above embodiments and various modifications may be made within the scope of the invention.

[0098] While the work vehicle 1 is exemplified as a wheel loader in the above embodiment, the work vehicle may also be another work vehicle such as a hydraulic excavator or a bulldozer.

[0099] The first exhaust processing device 23 is exemplified as a DPF device and the second exhaust processing device 24 is exemplified as a SCR device in the above embodiment. However, exhaust processing devices other than a DPF device or a SCR device may be used as the first exhaust processing device 23 and the second exhaust processing device 24.

[0100] The first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the first inside ventilation cover part 65 are not limited to the vehicle body cover of the engine room 7 and may be provided in a vehicle body cover for another portion. The same may be said for the second outside ventilation cover part 85 and the second inside ventilation cover part 86.

[0101] The first outside ventilation cover part 64 and the first inside ventilation cover part 65 are not limited to the configuration of the above embodiment and may be modified. For example, the inclined surface part 66 and the eave parts 67 in the first outside ventilation cover part 64 are not limited to being integrated and may be formed separately. The perforated plate member 71 may be omitted from the first inside ventilation cover part 65. Alternatively, the spot cooling member 72 may be omitted from the first inside ventilation cover part 65. The same may be said for the second outside ventilation cover part 85 and the second inside ventilation cover part 86.

[0102] The first outside ventilation cover part 64 may be a portion of the exterior cover. That is, the outside ventilation holes 642, 643, and 644 may be formed directly in the exterior cover and the first inside ventilation cover part 65 may be provided on the inside of the exterior cover. The same may be said for the second outside ventilation cover part 85.
