Operating Lever Plaques.
All Energic motoculteurs and Moto-winches operate the same lever controls for the wheel clutches, direction (inverse) and gears. The operator’s indicator plaques were made from Copper and aluminium, depending on the type and age of the machines. These plaques showed positions forward and reverse with 2 neutrals between and 3 gears depending upon the model.
Energic motoculteur B5 one lever plaque, showing inverse direction and stop.
The first Energic motoculteurs type B used just 3 levers, as there was no reverse gear, with the gear box permanently in 1 forward gear giving the B motoculteurs the top speed of 4kph. In later upgraded B5 models there was a reverse gear added.
Energic motoculteurs C7 & D9 2 lever plaques, showing inverse direction and stop. The other side select 3 gears.
Energic C7 and D9 motoculteurs used 4 levers. The fourth is the selection of 3 gears (centre right from the operator’s position).
I have never seen actually an Energic motoculteur G9 plaque so could only speculate that they were made from copper.
