    Do newer Komatsus have ISO or SAE controls as default? Can the control pattern be switched over by the cab computer?

    I cant say for certain but almost all of them have a mechanical pattern changer. There really is no default as you rotate the pattern changer and the pattern is what you point the arrow to. I am not aware of one that is electronic but it would not surprise me if it is available. However kinda like what has evolved with safety issues with hyd couplers, they will not want to make it too ease to change patterns as to prevent someone from changing patterns by mistake and hurting someone.

    Yeah - true about the safety issues. Cat puts their pattern changer behind a password protected section of the cab's computer.
