John Deere motor graders will have as an option this year the multifunction GraderStick joystick control system from Maddock Industries, Bloomington, Ind. The GraderStick is a single-lever, multifunction joystick that can be added to most existing motor graders and operates all of the hydraulic control functions. It provides the operator with proportional fine control of the lift/lower and side-shift functions of the blade and adds single-hand straight up and straight down blade control. The operator also can easily perform multiple blade movements simultaneously. The GraderStick can be moved between graders and leaves the original motor grader controls in place and fully functional.
