Default 4-position Momentary Switch for Hydraulic Controls

One of the switches in the hydraulic control panel attached to the front of the driver's seat broke. In the attached photo, it is the center one in front that is leaning back. The switch is an Italian made 'Breter' joystick 4-position momentary switch, as are the other two joystick switches. I have checked around online and not yet been able to locate a reliable source for a replacement and am looking for suggestions for places who might have them.

Make sure you check the length, so they fit your console also. Don’t remember if the hole is 22mm or 30mm so you would need to verify
Amazon has other also just search 4 way joystick switch

Thank you Cidertom and MNoutdoors! I did several searches and could not find anything that looked right. All I found was large manufacturers with hundreds of switches to look through and no way to refine the search. Good points about checking hole diameter and length of the switch.

Wow! I should say so! Had no idea that working on my old DeLorean could be so expensive. I sorta figured it would not be real cheap but that is just crazy. LOL

Default Re: 4-position Momentary Switch for Hydraulic Controls

I wonder if anyone may have an original Breter switch they would be willing to sell so I can keep this all original? Maybe someone removed the hydraulic system from their 'cat and no longer needs the switch(es).

The other idea, if an original style switch is not available, maybe it would be better to rebuild the entire switch arrangement, perhaps putting it in a location less likely to be sat on by someone getting into, or out of the driver's seat. Any suggestions? Have seen several multi-function joysticks, maybe one for the front 10-way blade and another to control the rear groomer?
