Frankly i did not understand this, what make it PITA? a consol ot a tiller? Currently i have a tiller with side controls. the Ezy glide stick is more than $300. When i can afford it, i do not want to afford thing which i do not know if i like it or not I purchased a rotary mechanism with cable of ebay for $40 I can fabricate a swing away steering console to save room one like this http://www.ganatswingaway.com.au/ Can be easily made out of computer monitor swing arm which i have in my garage So, my question is, does it worth hassle to do it on a 1448 tracker or just stay with the tiller? The question for ppl who tried both in hunting situations.
