When a life-changing accident prevented construction contractor Kendale Dosselman from operating his new 60G compact excavator, the custom engineering team at John Deere Dubuque Works went to work on a modified control system. “We were honored to help a customer who was trying to help himself,” said Ryan Camps, engineer, Dubuque Works. Today, Dosselman is back in the cab, doing what he loves. "I have more ways to work a little longer, and the modifications made it simple to use because I’ve got movement now on both the joystick and the thumb. It’s astonishing to do things by myself. It’s like ‘wow, I did that!’” http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQZZA
