    Switching to ISO controls on 270b backhoe?

    Hi All,

    New here. Have a quick question regarding the 270b backhoe. My dad just bought a 2038r and decided to get the 270b backhoe for it. The 2038r is a sweet machine! After trying the backhoe out for the first time the other day I was surprised to find it had SAE controls and no way to swap over to ISO. I guess I assumed it would either be ISO or have the ability to switch between them. I have spent all my seat time in excavators, so needless to say, operating this backhoe really had me frustrated. I've researched and read that some people have found ways to swap hoses and resistors, but haven't found any solid directions/advice.

    Has anyone here successfully swapped a 270b over to ISO controls? What all did it take?

    Thanks in advance for any insight or suggestions!
