/ No more 'treadle pedal' #21

My L6060 has the small aluminum HST pedal. HST is servo assisted so little effort is needed.I was looking at an new MX series with hydrostat drive and immediately noticed that Kubota got rid of the clunky 'treadle pedal' and replaced it with a much shorter 2 level cast aluminum pedal control that is 100% Drive by Wire. Never had a hydrostat but I've always not been impressed with the oversized 'treadle pedal'. Not there on the new MX series.
I'm not fond of the pedal because, among other things, it is too far from the floorboard.
Yes, I've become somewhat used to it over time, but, in my opinion, the engineer that designed it, along with the one that designed the adjustable lift lever stop, should be looking for alternative employment.
