Hydrostatic control conversion? Maybe!

Recommended Posts

tbar1.1
First of all let me wish every one a very happy holiday! I think I've come up with a conversion for a foot control instead of the hand operated variable speed control on my 4040. It is done and works quite well. I'm putting together drawings and a discription of the process so that anyone who wants to can do the same. The major drawback to the end result is that the brake pedals have to be removed,(can be a safty concern). Anyone Interested? jayt

MPH, I looked at that and even with a jackshaft I would not have the room needed for the double pedal(forward/reverse) and the clutch pedal. I'm looking into maybe using the old lever and maybe one linkage rod to connect both brakes from the original brake shaft location. Hand brakes maybe? jayt

Not sure on the 4040 but the 720 I saw last Aug had indivual,or stearing brakes, with a lock on the pedals like the farmal's I grew up on. Seems that be hard to give up. Would a toe/heel pedal have helped?? MPH

That's what I used (created) and to get the length needed for proper leverage and position it so I still had a little room for my foot to be off the pedal and on the foot rest.If I can get these drawings done, I'll get them to Kent and see if he can put them on the "do-it-yourself" page. jayt
