    We got a new BOSS trip edge with what I am guessing is the smart controller. It is hand head. It is unlike our other plows in that if you even brush the button it moves. Our other hand helds at least had a fraction of a second delay and you had touch the button not accidental brush it. Is it a faulty controller.

    My dad is the primary driver. I tried it a little today and I have a hand held controller on our Fisher EZV and this controller is 100x more sensitive. If your anywhere near the button it moves, you don't have to press the button just put you finger on it like the touch screen of a phone. Several times it angled when pushing the down button, my fat thumb was against, but not necessarily pressing the button. Dad said it is so sensitive it is difficult to control and he absolutely hates it, in my short time in it I agree. We both have had several other plows so it is not just a getting used to thing.

    So I put a bit more time in today and if I was careful the controller worked. I may have to take back what I said. Yes the buttons are sensitive, but I could manage if I looked at the controller. Must be my fat thumbs. I may switch over to a joystick. Dad said he would give it another go and take his time. Guess we are not used to the speed of the plow coupled with the buttons curving over the raise lower button. Overall it plows well, the auto up function is nice too

    My New DXT was like this, like SHAWZER said you'll learn to love it.

    Until you drop it on the floor and it moves the plow. Or your loading salt and your 2 year old thinks its a toy.
