Slim rocker handle

Sept. 13, 2007
With the RHS slim-rocker handle, installing the Pro-4 joystick in a 1.6-in.-diameter hole can take place without disassembling the handle.

The handle comes with or without a rocker or pushbutton switch in the top, and its ribbed surface provides a comfortable grip. In addition, a mechanical interlock can be incorporated on the Pro-4 and Pro-6 single-axis joysticks. The handle is suitable for applications where easy of installation, service, or the security of joystick interlock is needed, such as on scissors lifts, Ariel work platforms, bucket trucks, and agricultural, mining, and forestry equipment.
