Hi guys I have been using a 325 Bobcat mini excavator and it has the 2 pattern controls on the machine when I first got on the machine the controls were completly backwards for me. Left Boom up down swing Right dipper in out bucket curl Is this Johndeere controls I can run the machine with the controls this way Left dipper in out swing Right boom up and down bucket curl Is this Cat controls ? Anyhow I never did pay attention to ISO and SAE controls before because I have always ran Hitatchi excavators and the controls are what I meantioned. I had a heck of a time running the bobcat machine with the controls backwards from what I'am used to. I used to work at the lumber yard that has the rental shop that rents this machine out and we would use it for doing odd jobs around the lumber yard. It was kinda embarassing for me to run the machine as I couldn't run the controls the way they were but the other guys learned how to run excavator on that machine so it didn't bother them. I had to fix the pattern control switch and it was back to normal for me I could run that machine like the Hitatchi's. It was kind funny thou when I left the control selector in the pattern I like and the other guys get on the machine and couldn't run it.
