1. A control device for an implement system of a machine, the control device mounted on a support and comprising:
a first gimbal rotatably coupled to the support;
a second gimbal rotatably coupled to the first gimbal;
a linear actuator having a first end and a second end, the linear actuator fixed to the second gimbal from the first end; and
a handle attached to the linear actuator at the second end, the handle configured to move in conjunction with rotational movements of the first gimbal and the second gimbal, and a linear movement of the linear actuator to control a movement of the implement system.
