    Hey every one just was wondering if a joy stick controller would work if it was replacing a hand held controller. You see my problem is my S-10 had a fisher fish stick hand held controller it grew legs and walked away (stolen). I have a Silverado with a Western joystick I was wondering if I could just plug the joystick into the S-10 and make the plow work or if it would mess up that setup or if I had to have the joystick controller?

    Also looking for a hand held controller for a western straight blade.

    Thanks Mark

    I know they're interchangeable with Boss and Western but I'm not sure about other brands.

    I think the joystick is cable control and the handhelds are electronic. You can't switch from one to the other even with the same brand. (western)

    The new joysticks are electronic and have been for some time.
