Hey guys,

I have a friend that just got a 04 Chevy 2500hd with a 8' Fisher with the joystick control. He wants to swtich the control to a Fishstick and wants to know how hard it would be to do so. Would he be best off keeping the Joystick? Also how would he go about putting the plow in "Float" mode with the Joystick?

Thanks for your time.

Yes the switch is just to unplug in the old and plug in the new. However to float get some taking used to. I was used to tapping the joystick down and being in float but the fish stick you have to hold the down button for 1 sec and it will be in float (a green light will appear if in doubt). it took a couple plows to get used to but love it!

Once you switch to the FishStik you'll never go back!! Not that there's anything wrong with that.. Ha Ha

But keep the joystick as a back up in case you need it. You know how anything can happen

Love the fishstick. Left hand steers, and right hand shifts (auto) and operates the fish stick. The most notable difference is the fish stick will do smooth stop on left and right movements of the blade. Takes some getting used to. As others have said, just unplug the joystick and replace with fish stick.
