Squirrel Foot Controls
All New SD Foot Controls reduce foot pressure by 50%.
True Foot Controls SD (Soft Drive)
The SQUIRREL is a machine with unique foot controls, giving three dimensional movement without the operator shifting his feet. A wide seat belt holds the operator directly above the foot pedals giving a safe and comfortable working position. The fully adjustable spring centred foot pedals allow you to continue working with both hands free AT ALL TIMES. This proven feature alone makes the SQUIRREL the most efficient machine.
Foot controls are directly mounted to hydraulic valves, allowing the operator to gradually phase all movements and giving a "positive feel" (no bowden cable problems).
CAGE is enclosed on three sides, has a large self closing rear gate (incorporating a storage tray) with two closing latches giving maximum protection to the operator. Also sited in the cage is an electric throttle, Emergency Stop Button and a start button and electric hydraulic three speed Control.
Side Swing Cage
The cage rotates hydraulically 120º left to right by using the left foot pedal. Cage swing is constant at all heights making the SQUIRREL ideal for a range of applications. This cage swing allows the operator to reach a greater area instantly without moving the base of the machine.
The SQUIRREL's side swing cage, when rotated left or right, allows the operator to work in a more comfortable position with less strain from stretching or twisting. This feature reduces the amount of maneuvering of the base of the SQUIRREL as it is driven down the row.
Hand Control Options
Joy-stick hand control cage is available in a single or two man style. This is ideal for hire fleets and construction work. Hand controls are directly mounted to hydraulic valves, allowing the operator to gradually phase all movements.
