Hyster N30XMR:
Joystick problems

Joystick quit working for forward and reverse yet all the buttons on the stick still function as they should. Had a couple of different repair companies out to try and fix it, one spent several hours trying to trace the problem with no success, the other said the joystick is shot and the parts not available - recommends we just buy a new machine!
Any ideas as to the possible problem?

after doing a little checking i found a service gram from hyster about these handles, the service gram mainly dealt with repairing/retrofitting the upper part of the handle to make it servicable, the old style handles were not.
But there is a note in this bulletin that plainly states:
The lower control mechanism is non-repairable and the entire control handle must be replaced if it is defective.

As far as these tech's that came out and looked at it were they hyster techs? or Independent Techs? In either case they were wrong.. you can get a handle for this truck New or Reman
the New part number is 1554722 and the Reman part numbers are 4001993 and R4001993.

Sounds like these guys didn't know what they were doing and besides it is a heck of alot less expensive to replace the handle assy than replacing a $45k lifttruck just because of something like this ;o)

John Lennon had terrible eyesight and was very self-conscious about it. Early in his career, he would not wear his glasses during performances. In the end, John's 'granny glasses' became one of his most iconic trademarks. His last pair, worn on that tragic day in 1980, are kept at 'The Beatles Story' exhibit in Liverpool, insured for over £1 million.
