This is how Toro did it on some of theirhydro rigs.


Any idea which models?

That's an interesting idea. A couple of my MFs have the "creeping hydro lever"  ailment.

I've tried several times to adjust the tension.

268h is one. What they do is attach a plate to the control arm so the magnet has something to grab. Then they have a safety switch relay setup to kick it off when the brake is applied.

Here's the Ford brake parts I spoke about earlier:



Might even be able to use that to run the fwd/rev!

I've been mulling over in my head how to do my friction lock.  Maybe on the pedal shaft put a round disc, and just use brake pucks with a quick adjust so I can lessen the friction as needed between foot & hand control.  I figure it would need a lighter setting for foot control, but only way to know is to build it & try it.  Using electromagnet would work, but more to power & something else to burn out & that would of course be at the worst time.
