XControl Joystick

-Ergonomics, productivity and safety

The XControl Joystick is designed with excavator drivers in mind. We wanted to design a joystick with good ergonomics with maximum functionality and safety. The result is Steelwrist XControl Joystick!

XControl-G2-570x220

Apart from the thumb rollers used to control the tilt and rotation of the tiltrotator we added two additional rollers on the back side of the joystick. With your index fingers you can operate for instance a gripper unit, the wheels or tracks of you excavator simultaneously with the tiltrotator.

Many wheeled excavators have a forward/neutral/reverse switch in one joystick. The XControl Joysticks can be configured with a three position switch on the right hand joystick making it easy and convenient to change the driving direction of the excavator

XControl Joystick is a part of the XControl tiltrotator control system and has many benefits:

  • Indexfinger roller to enable simultaneous operation of many functions
  • Perfect ergonomics to avoid strain and allow long working days without problems
  • Dual sensors in each roller to meet the safety requirements for joystick steering of wheeled excavators
