Correct setup for tree harvester with dual joysticks ... ?

Post by W1der » Thu Jun 01, 2017 6:43 pm

Is there any real life operators or someone that knows how the sticks should be correctly setup for the Scorpio king?
Or is it just to complex to accomplish with a regular gaming joystick?

I made some research and found the info regarding a regular excavator ... and I suspect that it is similar for the "boom" and "stick"!?
But the tree harvester has a different setup as it also has the extension for the stick ... :hmm:

As I understand it, for the excavator there is two standards "ISO" and "SAE" ...
For the excavator I use this setup ... which should be the "SAE" ...

Left hand left = Swing left.
Left hand right = Swing right.
Left hand forward = Stick out.
Left hand back = Stick in.
Right hand left = Bucket close.
Right hand right = Bucket dump.
Right hand forward = Boom lower.
Right hand back = Boom raise.

But I cannot find this information for the tree harvester ... :search:

That setup is correct for harvesters also. Only change is of course right hands left/right being rotating of the harvester head. Left for counterclockwise rotation and right for clockwise.

Hello and welcome to the forum ... and thanks for the input ... !

What would be the most accurate way to setup the extendable part of the stick?
Left/right or up/down on the "hat-button" ... (and would this be located on the left or the right hand joystick)?
