    Default Wrecker control unit for LMTV 1089 Wreckers.... winchs/stinger/fold/extend etc.

    I have had a request to manufacture a Wrecker Control unit for the 1089 wreckers.

    Before getting into running down all of the parts that are needed I would like to find out what the level of interest is. These will be made in new aluminum cases, unlike the original steel box.

    Final cost will be reflected in the amount of interest, The plugs are very expensive.

    We currently mfg'er the crane control cables for the 1089 and the Grove style Crane units and have the control assembly.

    Since you make part of the OEM M1089 Hydraulic system already..... would part of why you have to remake them differently.. be because you can not conflict with existing govt. contract/regulations? Just curious..... makes since if that is part of the reasoning in change to aluminum cases.

    He's a private individual like us and can make some of the electrical stuff for us.

    Like some of my wrecker steel, I have made by a machine shop.

    I make custom cable for different equipment. The steel case would be a PIA to mfg'er. A aluminum case would be easier and give the switching more protection. The steel case tend to rip the cover off.

    There are no Patent problems on these controls. We use a better wire and waterproof the connectors. One of the cables we use is R/F and Crush proof.
