converting Prentice 210C to joysticks and slasher controls
« on: January 05, 2020, 01:48:06 AM »
Hey all. I have a Prentice 210C that was not setup from factory with slasher controls. have any of you plumbed in your own controls? mine has levers too, I would like to convert it to joysticks, but if I can get slasher controls thats the main thing needed. thank you much

 Barsaw or circle saw ? When you say "controls" are you just saying a handle or are you plumbing the machine from scratch ? The handle assembly for my Barko was 70.00 bucks on ebay. Again what do you have now ? Is the valve body there and your just hooking it up ? Are you going mechanical joystick or pilot control ? Someone converted my Barko over ? , literally a couple brackets, cables, heim joints, done. "Joystick control". 🤣

I would really like to plumb in a circle saw. 

I have the levers. a 2 way joystick for the buckboard and cut function, and I also have a power devider for the circle saw to spin. the problem is plumbing it in. I was trying to plumb the saw function into the return of the main valve bank, but i believe it over pressured the system and blew a few o-rings out of the valves, and i spent half a day cleaning and putting them back. so I need to know how to do it the right way. 

the joystick controls would be a HUGE plus but aren't necessary

 In a couple days I will get some pictures of how my Barko is rigged up, cables hooked to the old 5 lever spools, if your handy it's not a hard thing to do. I'm no help on the circle saw, @MaineLogger may know.
