    Joy stick

    Sorry to hear about the going through 3 Fish Sticks...

    I have to say I was initially disappointed when the new F250 (8' HD straight blade) I got came through with the "old school" joy stick.

    I have since grown to love it, especially mounted on the dash to the left of the steering column. Being right handed I like being able to shift and steer with that hand, while controlling the plow with my left.

    Works great, had no technical issues.

    If they offer a different control, it might be worth a try.
    Sometime simple is better and more reliable.

    Good luck.

    What is the issue with the Fishstick? I bought a used on last year along with my MM1 8" HD and had no issues last year, nor last month when I hooked it up and tested all the functions.

    I just want to know what the problem is so i can recognize it when I see it.

    The problem is in the cord for the Extreme V stiks,your dealer should have revised cords in stock that solved the problem.
    Mayhem-you shouldn't have the same problem with yours unless the PC board goes bad inside.
