Is something like that going on with the left lever here?

actually, I think that is... a really old and obsolete version, but its the same idea, just needs wires, and more then likely chucked in the oopsies bin and replaced with one that still works. You can also get them with a "trigger" type control vs rocker switch... Imma do some searching

the sky is literally the limit... Do some shopping on your own though, the above is just to get the gears spinning, a lot of the times these things are stupidly overpriced, like $300-500 for a $7 micro switch and some cheap molded plastic with a regular ass nut held in by friction alone... I suggest Ebay?

Might have to do some minor wiring to get it going proper

Seems pricey, I wonder how it compares to the ones made for loaders.

That is why I built my own. IIRC the purpose built handles were even more. If you are handy and your knob is a suitable (or you can find or fab one), you can drill and tap it for a switch.

I believe this is the switch I used. The web is full of them. Prices vary a lot.
