Selectable Joystick Control (SJC)

Unmatched Performance

Selectable Joystick Controls: Unmatched Performance Whether you're maneuvering your loader, operating attachments or pushing and lifting materials, control means everything. With Bobcat® Selectable

Joystick Controls (SJC), available on most loader models, the power is in your hands. They're the most advanced joysticks on the market, built with more features to help you run your machine and attachments more efficiently than ever. While some manufacturers make you pay extra for certain features, or require additional panels to operate them, all of the below features are standard with Bobcat SJC. Experience the difference for yourself by scheduling a demo with your Bobcat dealer.

Speed Management

With speed management, you can adjust your travel speed independently from your engine speed. Set your engine speed to the optimal setting for the attachment you're operating, then dial in your desired travel speed. It's especially helpful when you operate attachments that require a slow and consistent travel speed while maintaining high engine speeds, such as a trencher, planer, snowblower or mower. Simply set your desired speed and go.

Horsepower Management

Horsepower management automatically matches engine torque to the workload. If you work in challenging conditions and your engine rpm starts to slow, horsepower management automatically adjusts to minimize stalling. If you want more control over your machine's performance and your work, simply turn horsepower management off.

Steering Drift Compensation

Steering drift compensation keeps your loader on a straight path as you side-shift certain attachments, such as a planer or trencher, that tend to pull the machine to one side. It's also beneficial when you operate on surfaces that cause the loader to gradually drift to the left or right, such as gradual slopes or crowned roads. Make fine steering adjustments with the push of a button to either side and stay on target.

Drive Response

Drive response mode allows you to choose how the drive responds to joystick movement. Three different settings put you in control: Choose a higher mode for quicker drive response. Select a lower drive mode for smooth, responsive operation.

Quality Technology

While the reengineered Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC) offer more features and comfort than ever, it's also the most reliable joystick we've made.

Ultimate Control

Control is everything when you work long days on tough jobs. That's why the Selectable Joystick Control (SJC) features fingertip switches and selectable control pattern. Fingertip controls enable you to easily control numerous machine functions without letting go of the joysticks. Operate a planer, trencher or tree spade with ease or control the angle functions on the soil conditioner, angle broom or grader. Selectable control pattern gives you further flexibility to choose between ISO or H-Pattern, satisfying different operators with the flip of a switch.

Increased Comfort

Get improved functionality without sacrificing ease of use. Controls are exactly where you expect them to be: at your fingertips. Plus, joysticks can be adjusted separately from the operator seat, making operation comfortable for any operator. Because there's only one convenient foot throttle, operators enjoy increased legroom inside the cab.
