    I have one on my MD2,I am used to using a joystick on a Fisher,I don't like it right now however it may very well grow on a person.

    I have one - works great, nice backlighting - float position lights up green - also monitors circuitry and shuts down if it detects a short. Also shuts down if you try to use it when the plow is off the truck. ( good to know when you first install and want to check it out!!)

    What make of plow do you have. I know up here in Nova Scotia the Fisher MM2 Fishtik is 350.00 or 375.00 Cdn. I love mine and the Boss touchpad I have also. I can switch hands or shift and raise/lower and shift at the same time etc.

    We have a touchpad on our Curtis plow. It's exactly like the Meyers one pretty much. I'm not to thrilled about it. I actually like the joystick on our Unimount better. But I have to admit, the touchpad has a realluy quick response, usually the blade hits the ground pretty hard when someone drops the plow.

    If the blade drops quick I suspect you can adjust that on your pump manifold. You can on a blizzard.

    I love my two toggle switches I can drop and angle at the same time or raise and angle as I am race-tracking my windrows! Also I hear alot of touch-pad guys saying there thumbs or whole hand is killing them after 16 hrs of plowing!
