Default Operator comfort

Had to move a joy stick back about 10" and stay out of the way
of all the knobs buttons and levers and allow for the travel of
the air ride seat. The old mount was adjustable forth and back
and up and down, by going round into square the new mount is
adjustable forth and back, side to side, swivel side to side,tilt forth and
back and rotate left or right. Had to make heavy duty locking
bolts because of the leverage of the new mount. All in all it
took about 8 hours, and a lot of that head scratching.

1 old mount

2 new mount

3,4,5 in place

Nice customization. If the operator can be comfortable, he /she can be much more productive.
