    Can you buy a wireless controller for any sno- way plow? I have a controller right now that is a big box and want to change it to the wireless or some sort of joy stick. thanks

    it sounds like you have the old rocker switches... so no you cant change it to the wireless control.

    They offered a wireless with the old fenner pump. It was little, OK, a lot different then the one today, but was wireless. I installed one in the late 90's. It was a pricey up grade even then. Not available any longer, no service parts available.

    would i still be able to get a joy stick? the controller i have right now is located on the left side under the steering wheel so im either going to move it or move it and buy a new controller.

    If your current plow has rocker switch controls, this would be the only control available for the model plow you have. The wireless controls will only run plows produced after 2001.

    Yes I have the Joystick for the Fenner unit in stock, if I remember correctly it will also require a different harness. I will double check that an let you know.

    I put mine on a piece of sheet metal and then laid it on the seat and used the center seat belt to hold it in place. A piece of plywood will work too. On my 04 F-250 with bucket seats I put the controller under the front of the console.
