Foot control for hydrostat
I have a 1440 Cub/Mtd and I hate the dash speed control for the trans. Has anybody converted one to foot control ?:bigthink:

99% positive I have seen pics of it done. I want to say it was detailed on OCC. I'm sure someone will be along shortly with details.

That is pretty slick. I would probably shorten the lower bar a little title more though.

NOW,,, someone needs to convert it to a TWO pedal foot control.
Once you use a hydro with separate pedals for forward and reverse,, you can not consider a one pedal.

Keep your heel on the floorboard, and simply swing your ankle between the pedals.

With a 1 pedal dual control,,, you are constantly holding your foot in the air.

From looking at this one, I think you would only need one more rotating shaft,, and a connecting link. :bigthink:

The two pedal control is the way to go. I think you could use the pedals from a 3000 series Cub. The linkages could be modified to work on earlier Cubs.

I have attempted to do this to 1812. My approach has been to disconnect the factory tie rod ends and leave everything else intact. I've had it all working but my rtn wasn't working right. And it worked great until throttle up. Then it would stick on fed high till I hit the brake. I did 2 seperste pedals and used springs at the pedals for rtn. I got burned out and put it back to factory. But I think when I work on it again I'll try rtn springs at the linkage on the pump.

Which one did you try? The 1862 or the 1811?
