    I'm currently using them on a Dual Dozer, and I'm wondering if there is, or who makes, a suitable replacement for the GCR-2SM machine control system.

    Thought I would bump this. Recently I've had to replace the small aluminum remote control box and switches due to water damage (not from me) with a plastic J-box. Not all of the LED's work but everything seems to function ok. Now the Hirschmann connectors on the solenoid valves have failed due to not having the rubber seal gasket. The screws are broken off in the solenoid. Is there a fix or do I have to buy a whole new solenoid?
    When I talked to Trimble about a replacement for the dual receiver GCR system they had no idea what I was talking about. Weird. The Apache CB52 looks like it may work. Looking into it.
