    I have the hand held for the vplow took a little while to get the hang of it the old truck had a fisher below the dash.
    When i plow i hold the controler in my right hand and shift with the left.

    I'd only use a handheld so you can shift and control the plow with your right hand.

    I like them both for straightblades. I prefer the joystick for my V plow.

    I have used the handheld for 4 years now. We just picked up acouple of older Boss V's with the joystick. I'm accustomed to the handheld so the joystick is a pta until I get used to it.
