    New loader control knob for controlling 3rd function

    Hi everyone. I'm a new member (and this is my first post) and a new owner of a 2025r. I'm about to order the Artillian 3rd function kit and I'm wondering what options I have to avoid zip-tieing their switch on my loader control lever. I guess there's certainly nothing wrong with zip ties, it will probably work just fine for me...but I feel like I'd prefer something that looks like it came from the factory that way versus something I've added. Anyone have any thoughts or experience with replacing the loader control knob with something that has a built in rocker switch or something like that?

    Apologies if this has been discussed in length...I'm still getting familiar with the site.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas.
    -Steve

    Hi Steve

    I just ordered this last night. I'll let you know how I make out with it once installed. I also have the Artillian diverter kit on order. The wiring is still external, but the button is in a much better position.

    As cool as those custom knobs are, to me having the button zip-tied to my joystick was not a problem in search of a $65 - $175 solution. I installed mine as per the original design from Artillian. It doesn't look tooooo bad and is comfortable to use with either my index or middle finger. It's never gotten in the way and I've cut the zip-ties close enough that I've never snagged myself on them. Also, my tractor spends more time than I'd like out in the elements and I haven't had a problem with water and that switch.

    Would I like to have one of the fancy setups? Sure, BUT the problem is that those are cool enough that it would make my tractor even more of a chick-magnet than it already is.

    Another source for a similar grip. Just found this while researching. Haven't purchased one so can't offer any other info.
