    Any one know of a way to disable the auto up function of the handheld controller?

    If this cant be done is there any one interested in trading a joystick for a nearly new handheld?

    There's another guy just posted looking to get a hand held; he doesn't like the joystick.

    When plowing unpaved not yet frozen ground you need to continuously adjust the blade height to avoid turfing. If you press the buttons too quick it goes all the way up. If this happens where you're stacking you're stuck.

    I agree with it being a pain. Most of my drives are gravel and can be miserable before frost. Seems like 1/2 the time I tap to take a little tension I get a full raise. Then you have to start again.

    There is a controller that does not do that. I have one. It is from a 2004 ish V plow. I got a new one and it was going auto up on me. Switched back to the old one.
