Looking for a (different manufacturer) compatible Hydraulic Joystick for Mahindra 23L Loader. OEM failed and casing broke @ 43 hours. Anybody with info. on make and model that will work. I.E. Amazon, Ebay, Kubota Part/Model, New Holland. Anything "But" Mahindra. Would re-install (Mahindra OEM0 but unable to find a decent price.
Just having push back from Mahindra dealer, lack of stock, outrageous price quotes. Thanks, Stever

People often get confused when it comes to loader valves. For the most part neither tractor or loader manufacturers make the valves. They source them from whatever supplier can deliver the style, spec, quantity, and price they're looking for. Yes, they often have part numbers in their system, but they don't really want to fool with them so they price them outrageously so people will look elsewhere.

If you're looking to repace yours, then do a little research. Figure out what you have now. It's not a Mahindra valve, it's probably a Nimco or something else. Don't worry so much about the brand, but the port style, size, and configuration. How much flow(GPM) your system supplies will determine the size valve you need. Then visit some hydraulic supply websites or paper catalogs and see what's available that comes close enough. You may need to drill some new mounting boltholes, maybe build or modify a bracket. Much cheaper than dealer OEM.
Thanks. I will work on this. Maybe another forum reader has already done the spec. work and knows of a compatible size and confiuration. Seasonal winter snow removal began last night. Hommeowner aptitude is somewhat a show stopper but this forum is very appreciated.
