    Have you ever changed ar added buttons on your pilot or E/H controls?

    I have a Case TR270 and on the left side controler I have 3 buttons,
    2 are for 2 cylinders or 2 motors, but the 3rd is a switch that you can position on or off.
    The 3rd switch is the one that I would like to swap to a cylinder button,
    ie, up to send the signal to extend, down to retract the hyd cylinder.

    I need to operate 4 double acting cylinders from inside the cab on the sticks.

    any Ideas?

    I would suspect it would be nothing more than swapping out the switch. How are liking the 270?

    I too would think the switch could be changed, but I was told the harness had to be changed,
    But I could tell he was not 100% sure, and they were very busy.
    I need to opperate 4 cylinders on my tree digger and want to use those handy switchs.
    I love this Case machine, I dont have many hrs on it just yet, but it can sure lift plus its a treat to drive.

    Did you not have some switchs added to your machine for your mulcher?
