DRIVE BY WIRE

As one of HARD-LINE’s initial creations, DRIVE BY WIRE uses electrical systems that parallel traditional mechanical controls to perform various vehicle functions including throttle, brakes, transmission, and steering.

FLEXIBILITY & SAFETY

Every function is controlled electrically while the driver is removed from the machine allowing for remote-control operation in a safe location.

Equal or better control of machine increasing operational accuracy.

Customizable design.

Operators can strategically place themselves to get a better view of work area.

Operators removed from dangerous situations.
