Add On 2 Controls - SG-ASW-100 | Skid Steer Genius
Add 2 momentary controls to any machine. We designed this specifically for people with older Cat (A,B or C Series), ASV or Terex machines where you only have an 8 pin output with only 4 switches. This also works great for Kubota 14 pin machines where you only see 4 pins inside the 14 pin connector. Also Takeuchi and older machines often times have only 4 buttons. Some CAT D-Series low flow machines needed to be ordered with additional switches and to order them after the fact is a wallet crushing experience.
True to form, it's Skid Steer genius to the rescue. Install this handy toggle inside your cab. Use the supplied self tapping screws to permanently attach the bracket to your frame. Then all you do is run the power wire to a 12 volt source inside your cab. There is a pair of wires for your output that are 25 feet long. Fish them through your cab and out to your boom. It is best to follow your hydraulic lines out to the boom and tie wrap the wire to the inside of the lines for protection.
Here's where it get's tricky. If you have a 14 pin machine like a Kubota, you can open up the main connector on the machine and insert the pins directly into the connector. For Kubota, it will be either pins E & F or G & H. For others, check to see if E,F,G or H are open and install in those positions only. This is only if the connector is a 14 pin. For 8 pin follow the instructions below.
For Cat (A,B,C) or Terex, ASV, these use an 8 pin connector which does not have enough positions for extra controls. In this case you will leave the wire pair outside the connector and install the 2 pin housing onto the wire. We supply the mate for this connector so you can add the wore pair to your attachment end. This means you will need to connect the 8 pin connector and the 2 pin connector whenever you use this attachment. This is the most cost effective means that we could come up with for this application.

i have a 6 way cat dozer bla de and i want to use it on various machines i need a plug in controler
If it is a Caterpillar brand we will need to know whether it has an 8 pin or 14 pin connector on it and what machines you would like to operate it on. Each machine has it's own wiring scheme so we will have to adapt it to each machine or you can use our joystick control box and move it from machine to machine.
Greetings. I bought a New Holland L175 that has NO aux hydraulic accessory controls (just "on" and "off" to run a brush mower, tiller,etc). I also have a Bobcat snow blower from a previous machine with a 7-pin connector (this is the only attachment I have that requires additional electronic controls) My question is two-fold. 1) Would it be easier to buy the whole 14-pin kit or just 2 or 3 t-way switches? and 2) Is there a way to control the aux hydraulic lines electronically vs by having to physically hold the handle in place on my machine?
Question #1: Since you only have one attachment, the easiest and cheapest way is to convert the attchment to 14 pin control using this bypass harness
and then buying this control box.
Question #2: Your machine should be equipped with either a trigger or an Aux button that will allow you to lock the hydraulic controls on.
