Positioning hydraulic control valves in the cab means heat, noise and high-pressure oil close to the operator. Improved operator comfort is one benefit of locating hydraulic valves away from the cab. Salami cable operated remote controls from Berendsen are claimed to be a competive solution. They also allow the valve block to be ideally positioned for the hydraulic circuit, reducing installation time and cost, the company says. Both bankable single function levers and dual function joysticks are available. The ergonomically designed handgrips can have built in electrical switches and neutral detents. The ptfe lined cables can be between one and four metres long as standard.
