Meyer Plow Controls
There have been many controls used to operate
Meyer plows over the years.
Lets start at the beginning of the most current electric over hydraulic designs.
The E-46 Electro-Lift was a basic raise and lower unit, it did not have power angle. It required one switch.
The E-47 featured Power Angle. Power Angle first debuted on Meyer plows in 1969 (on the U-13 pump). The first E-47 panel was a 2 switch panel. The switch to go from vehicle lights to plow lights was typically mounted by drilling a hole in the dashboard. As vehicles became more complex and refined, Meyer went to a 3 switch panel like in the picture above, that had a place for the light switch to go from vehicle lights to plow lights.
When the E-60 Quik Lift came out, it used a small square analog Touchpad Controller (on the left above). Later models used a more refined larger, rectangular, digital Touchpad Controller with raised arrow shaped buttons (M22154X). The Touchpad was later used with the E-57, and E-58H as well. This Touchpad, with a Touchpad Harness can control the E-47, E-57, E-60, and the E-58H (must have E-58H harness). This digital Touchpad has a built in split second delay that holds open whatever valve was being used to perform a function (left, right, up, down) to prevent the valve from slamming shut, resulting in a loud bang, and the blade jumping to the left. It is HIGHLY recommended that the Touchpad Controller be used with the E-57, E-58, and E-60 units. It requires a separate switch to go from vehicle lights to plow lights. NOTE: There are aftermarket touchpad controllers all over eBay. IF it does not say Meyer right on the face, it is NOT Genuine Meyer.

The Slik Stik made its debut with the E-57 pump (yes the E-57 came out after the E-60). It can be used to control the E-47, and the E-57, though a Touchpad Controller is a better choice for the E-57 and explained above. Meyer named it the Slik Stik, everyone just calls it a joystick. It requires a separate switch to go from vehicle lights to plow lights.
The Pistol Grip came out as a replacement for the original wireless controller used with the Xpress plow.
The Pistol Grip is now the standard controller for all Meyer plows. There is a straight blade version (above), a V plow version, and the Xpress Plow version. It now features an automatic raise and lower feature. When the vehicle is shifted into forward or reverse, the plow can automatically raise and lower. It also automatically switches from Vehicle lights to plow lights when the Pistol Grip Controller is turned on.
There is a new digital Joystick out now too. We will add information about it as time allows.
So there you have it. The list of Meyer plow controllers.
