c. Control Levers and REMOTE CONTROL UNIT. All control levers (13) are spring-
loaded and will return to the center position when released. Moving the lever slightly from
the center position results in a slow movement of the function which that valve controls.
Moving the lever further from the center position results in a faster movement. The
function of each control lever is identified on the end of the control knob (14). The MHC
REMOTE CONTROL UNIT (15) allows you to operate the MHC from either side of the
vehicle. This means that you can keep the load in sight at all times. A remote control
switch (16) switches power to the REMOTE CONTROL UNIT. The REMOTE CONTROL
UNIT is attached to the MHC by a cable (17). The MHC responds to the remote control
levers the same as it does to the levers at the control panel. The levers on the REMOTE
CONTROL UNIT are also spring-loaded and will return to the center position when
released. The REMOTE CONTROL UNIT has levers to operate hoist up/down, boom
up/down, boom telescope in/out, and swing clockwise/counterclockwise.
