Selectable Joystick Controls offer superior control

Low-effort Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC), which offers flexibility in acceleration and deceleration for optimum loader performance, provides two control patterns. By simply pressing a rocker switch, the Bobcat loader operator can select ISO pattern or H pattern.

Improved operator comfort

Updates to the drive control software for Bobcat® loaders with SJC improve response rates and operator comfort. Operators will notice improved response to joystick movements for smoother, more precise machine movements. That makes the most advanced joysticks on the market even better, elevating machine and attachment efficiency.

Unique controllability functions

Available for Bobcat compact track and skid-steer loaders, Bobcat Selectable Joystick Controls have these unique controllability functions:

Horsepower management

SJC automatically adjusts the loader’s drive system to the workload to produce maximum pushing and digging power.

Speed management

This allows the operator to adjust the maximum travel speed at full stroke of the joystick, dialing in a slower travel speed to match the job demands and have more precise control of travel speed throughout the joystick range. The feature is especially helpful when operating attachments such as a trencher, planer, mower or snowblower, which require a slow and consistent travel speed while maintaining high engine speed.

Drive response mode

Allows operators to choose between three different settings for drive response to joystick movements. Choose a higher mode for a quicker drive response, or a lower mode for slow and smooth operation.

Steering drift compensation

This feature helps keep the loader on a straight path as the operator side-shifts certain attachments, such as a planer or trencher, that tend to pull the loader to one side.
