Slick camera(s) setup!What did you do to or on your John Deere today... ???
How about a 4k 360 degree video from my JD 322 inside cab showing the beast in action!
Got your attention!
Ok ok, here is the link:
Lots more videos coming soon.
Make sure to read the description on the video to find out all about this setup...
Yes, I will do all this, and also show the outside tractor during the day and night with all the lights on.Thanks!
Sure, Here it it is:
Hey Mike, I modeled the knob with a CAD software (I'm a Pro at this...)
Gotcha. Is it as "simple" as making outlines from a few different angles?Hey Mike, I modeled the knob with a CAD software (I'm a Pro at this...)
The way I did it was to place the original knob on top of the computer screen while I was doing the modeling.
Also, removing the original knob isn't as easy as just pulling on it (in my case anyway), I had to use a pair of ViseGrip just below the knob and use a small nail puller on top of the ViseGrip for leverage. This way, no stress was done on the linkages...
I think the mirror type joystick switch such as the one on your picture are digital switch.Gotcha. Is it as "simple" as making outlines from a few different angles?
I have a (different brand) tractor with a handle that screws onto the tranny lever. (Good luck getting that off if you don't know it's screwed on, it's not obvious on the parts diagram...)
Anyway, someone here on MTF (I believe) added a switch to that handle to control one of his snowblower actuators (chute or lift). These tractors don't have hydraulics, so everything needs an electric motor.
I've been thinking of ways to add a joystick and/or control panel, but your post inspired me: I should make a modified handle, with a thumb-sized joystick (think rear view mirror control like the pic below) and one rocker switch. Then I could control chute rotation and deflection with the joystick, and lift with the rocker.
