Meeting the requirements

Joysticks are sophisticated components in the man-machine interface.

At Danfoss, we develop and update our range continuously to meet the growing functional and safety requirements of today’s mobile machines.

From time to time, this means phasing out older products to make way for the newest technology and ergonomic designs.

To support customers during the phasing-out period, we continue to supply these joysticks as legacy products.

  • if (isSmallPicture) { Agriculture; } else if (isBigColumns) { Agriculture } else { Agriculture }

    Farmers need agricultural machines that deliver the same high productivity every season. Hydraulic solutions from Danfoss ensure world-class performance from each machine, and a comfortable, stress-free working environment for their operators.

  • if (isSmallPicture) { Construction; } else if (isBigColumns) { Construction } else { Construction }

    Space is limited on construction sites, and there are people working everywhere. Contractors need machines that can safely maneuver in a tight spot. At the same time they still need to be powerful enough to get the job done. At Danfoss, we deliver the components, software, and controls that enable your machines to run safely, efficiently and effectively.

  • if (isSmallPicture) { Crane and material handling; } else if (isBigColumns) { Crane and material handling } else { Crane and material handling }
    Crane and material handling

    Cranes and other large handling machines are required to operate within very specific load ranges. Danfoss provides pressure transmitters that supply load limiting systems with crucial data, safeguarding your equipment, your load, and your operator.

  • if (isSmallPicture) { Forestry; } else if (isBigColumns) { Forestry } else { Forestry }

    Rough, sloping terrain and cramped working conditions call for robust and reliable forestry machines. We make sure you can manage everything from cutting trees and transport to preparing the forest floor for replanting. We have the smart hydraulic solutions your machines need for precise and efficient forestry operations.

  • if (isSmallPicture) { Heavy machinery; } else if (isBigColumns) { Heavy machinery } else { Heavy machinery }
    Heavy machinery

    Think about the heaviest challenges in the open mining, road building and construction industry. Tasks such as cutting through rock or the Arctic permafrost; compacting thick layers of hot asphalt. As well as lifting huge, prefabricated wall panels into place.

  • if (isSmallPicture) { Lawn and turf; } else if (isBigColumns) { Lawn and turf } else { Lawn and turf }
    Lawn and turf

    Lawn and turf machines must adapt to their surroundings and the season – becoming sweepers or snow blowers as required. At Danfoss, we make hydraulic solutions to provide that flexibility and ensure safe and efficient operation.
