    Howdy, folks. I have another ignorant question. On the right-hand control lever of my NH LS 185.B is switch designated as in the title.

    I've seen some attachments that are described as having electrical over hydraulic controls. I assume that is what this switch is for. Is that correct?

    Just what is electrical over hydraulic, or as the manual states, electro-hydraulic?

    Presumably that switch runs to a cable with a connector somewhere, but I am unable to find it. Is there any standard place to look?

    thanks, bws

    You should have a round electrical connector on the boom of the skid steer, or you may have the controls on the stick but not the electrical connector on the boom. It works like this when you hook up the attachment and connect the hyd. hoses and the eletrical connection off of the attachment you can now run other features without a diverter valve. Example with a Erskine snow blower you run the shute rotation and the hyd. deflector at the top of the shute from the switches on the right hand controller.
