    I see on here people asking for ideas for mounting their Hand held controller.
    So I am posting some pictures of my setup.

    The hand control was not comfortable at all and I didn't want to go fishing around for it all night long so a stationary mounting is best for me. I want to be able to put my hand in the same place and have the controls be there.

    I purchased the pedestal mount that Boss offers for $80. What is nice about this mount is it is a magnetic base and has 2 joints that can be placed about any position.
    I fabricated up a metal base and mounted it to my console and it give me infinite mounting options. Left to right or adjusting it to any angle. If I don't like it I twist a couple thumb nuts or slide the magnetic base where I want it with out any tools.

    Here is the base side view :

    The Base :

    The base is just 3/4" square tube and a piece of sheet metal.
    I did have to un bolt the seats to get a drill to the console but it wasn't that big of a deal.

    Best part is when the season is over I unplug the molex and pull the base off and I am good till next season.

    I used to hold mine when I had my Hiniker plow and an automatic truck. This is easy when working with a manual tranny...
