    Do they make joysticks for this plow? I have a new joystick for my 32 series, but my dad has the old Lobo Sno-way V plow. I think the serial number starts with 28D or something like that. He has the old obnoxiously big yellow box with toggle switches and wanted to do something like my setup.

    The rocker switch control was the only one offered for this series of v-plow.

    Would it be possible to retro fit a current V-plow joystick to work?

    The current control is microprocessor based and is designed to run our current production hydrualic units. This is a 3 wire system, (power, ground, and signal) .

    I don't see anyway that it could be converted.

    So, I'd have to find a Monarch hydraulic system to switch out the old Fenner system for any chance of it working? Dang. Time to tell him to upgrade...haha

    Thanks for the help Toby.

    Would depend how hard you are willing to work. You might get the new control to work with the Fenner unit. but it would require some work. go the the Snoway service center and download the wiring and Hydraulics info for both plows. then see if you can trace the functions and overlay the wiring for the new style v. It's not imposable just high dollar and time consuming.
