The ‘MG’ range can be supplied with or without an operators hand rest and can be configured with a combination of momentary action button or rocker switch in the top of the handle, with a trigger switch at the front of the hand grip. The handle profile ensures the operator's fingers are permanently close to the buttons, minimising operator fatigue and maximising functional control.

This grip can also be supplied fitted to joystick controller models JC150, JC1500, JC6000 and JC8000

This handle can also be purchased separately, for fitting to customer levers or assemblies. Ask our sales team for more details on this option.
