    So, which companies make their excavators with the left control controlling the swing, and boom, and the right control for the bucket and dipper? I know kubota backhoes are like that, or they used to, I haven't run one for years. That's what I'm used to when it comes to the two controls and not three like case. But now that I drive a case 580b all the time, I'm much more confrotable using those controls.

    Thats Johndeere controls if the boom up/down-swing is left hand and Dip in/out-bucket curl is right hand that is also standard backhoe controls.

    Dip in/out-swing left hand Boom up/down-bucket curl right hand is Cat Hitachi Kubota controls I can run machines with the controls set this way.

    Like I said in my post above the local rental shops Mini excavators controls used tobe perminatly set on John Deere and I had a hell of a time running it not use to it. I fixed the lever pattern control switch and I got the Cat control pattern to work I could do anything with the machine then.

    BRL, we have a Nagano brand mini excavator and the switch to change the controls is under the floormat behind a small door.
