    Was wondering if you can swap out controls for Meyer plows. Can you replace the older 3 lever control for a newer touchpad control? Thanks

    Cool thank you. Just bought a truck with an older unit on it and that control is way to complicated if you are doing a lot of plowing. That is why I want to buy a new controller for it. Thanks

    You got that right, and the headlights are on a third switch on the same control.....

    Nothing fancy about them deere. Left switch is just your plow/truck head lights that you flip when mounting or removing the plow. Center switch is your left and right angle. And the left switch is your raise and lower with detent for float.

    Some of the real old toggles didn't have the light switch in the panel but were mounted separately and hard wired.

    Well, now we have to go plow with this old controller as I didnt have a chance to get the new touchpad yet. Winter storm in October...crazy. I really didnt want the guys to have to use that old controller but oh well. 6-12 forecast

    The one I am looking at actually has 3 seperate switches, is it still the same concept though? Thanks
