Mounted my Fisher controller

    This is the best spot I found for my Fisher joystick. I don't have to reach and I stay in a normal seated position. I also don't have to take my left hand off the wheel, so my right hand shifts and controls the joystick. So here's an idea for guys plowing with standard trannys. Might not work so well with autos, probably be in the way.

    It looks like a good spot for the control. Nice truck by the way.

    Thanks. I know it's not the most original idea, but it took a few minutes to get it right. I just wanted a simple and very practical spot. I used to have Fisher Speed casters and I hated leaning over to operate the joy stick.

    that controls looks very familiar :) for an auto tranny it is easier where I have it. the pic is of where it was in my old truck. it is in the same spot in my ford. I just dont have a pic of it. there is a pic of the one in my f250 somewhere on plowsite.

    In my older plow trucks that were standards we used to mount them on shifter used to make a different mount and use hose clamps to mount it worked out great used to be able to shift and control the plow at the same time
