How to Increase Your Productivity With Bobcat Selectable Joystick Controls

Every operator knows that running a machine equipped with your favourite control system and pattern keeps your productivity high and fatigue low. For that reason, many compact loader manufacturers offer different control setups. Hand and foot controls have been available on compact loaders for a long time. In recent years, selectable joystick controls have gained popularity. Operators like the reduced effort, low fatigue and adjustable settings this type of system offers.

Selectable Joystick Control Advantages
For jobs that involve multiple operators, many manufacturers’ joystick control patterns can alternate between the ISO and H-Pattern to match a particular operator’s preference. This plays a key role in maximizing comfort, efficiency and productivity. Virtually all of the hand-control systems allow attachments like a planer, trencher or tree spade to be activated with fingertip switches.

Some of these controls also have capabilities that provide adjustable response levels for operation in a variety of conditions. Machines that offer a built-in speed management feature allow you to adjust your travel speed separately from the engine speed, to achieve an optimal setting for the attachment you are operating.

Additionally, for side-shifted attachments, Bobcat compact loaders equipped with steering drift compensation can maintain a desired travel path in both forward and reverse directions. By adjusting the drive torque for either side of the machine, this feature enables you to perform functions on uneven surfaces without constantly correcting your path.

Bobcat Selectable Joystick Controls Increase In Popularity
No other hydraulic control in the industry comes close to delivering the level of customization and control you’ll find with Bobcat Selectable Joystick Controls. This system lets you control most skid-steer or compact track loaders and attachments easily and comfortably by offering the following features:

  • Effortless controls

Once you experience the advantages of Bobcat Selectable Joystick Controls, you’ll wonder how you ever operated without them.
