Electric Throttle Conversion for Cat/ASV

Another product from Bair Products:

Tired of your cables and foot throttle sticking on your CAT/ASV or Terex small compact loader? This easy to install conversion kit can convert a machine into electric control in as little as one hour.

Throttle R.P.M is controlled with a toggle switch. The operator will loose the hand and foot control, but no more stuck cables and also could work as a nice anti-theft device. Works great for opening and closing the valveís stationary engines, similar to water pump blowers for pit burners, or anything that has a cable problem.

Simply disconnect the cable at the injector pump and install the new controller. Operator can go from idle to full throttle in 1.2 seconds. Versatile positioning depending upon the where the injector pump is mounted; the end user may order a left side or right side mounting bracket.

Bairís Electric throttle can be used on other types of equipment such as:

Smooth Drum Rollers
Track Excavators
Hydrostatic Equipment
Case Equipment
John Deere Equipment
Bobcat Equipment

$544.00 each Includes all parts for installation (tools excluded)
Not bad, but I would rather keep a hand throttle for fuel economy, they need a medium setting, or better yet, a proportional dial.
The amount of energy necessary to refute bullsh*t is an order of magnitude bigger than to produce it

That's just silly, idle or full throttle? Nothing in between. Wouldn't even consider it.

I have had no problems with my foot or hand throttle.

All it is is a 12vdc linear actuator.... would be easy to control from idle to full bore with a little more effort or knowledge on their part.....mounting it incorrectly could jam the arm/linkage on the injection pump and damage it.... I think any machine that had cable problems has already had the newer cable installed that corrects the problem..... and at $500+ it's way over priced.... there might be $140 there in parts.... not a bad profit!!
