One more picture...
I finally got a chance to install my Joystick handle I bought last year, and while I was at it and had an extra button I installed a horn. The Handle is from John Deere, they use it on the 110 TLB's (cost $170.00) and the horn is from AutoZone (cost $14.00).
The hole in the end of the joystick was to big to fit, so I had to machine the adapter to make it fit.
I added 2 relays because I did not know the rating of the membrane switch in the handle, So I thought I'd just play it safe with the relays. The UP/DOWN switch operates the diverter on the FEL, either UP or Down activates the diverter. The front single switch operates the horn.
Thanks for looking
Oh this is a good one! this stays right on top - thats sooo creative to have the horn, and the rest of the controls on the FEL joystick -
thanks so much for sharing -
That is one sweet modification. If only my 2210 had the hydraulic flow of your's . . .

Hvae you used this in loader work and does it save time and effort overall, compared to traditional movements of the joystick without the new handle?
