I tried using my blower with a coat on but it made me look fat and restricted my movement.

Grats on the new blower! Does that mean we have to stop arguing now

I always had hip mounted throttles but like the tube mounted throttle on my 580 better, like you said, for freeing up the other hand. For extended blowing I often set the cruise control in the 75 to 85% range and then use to trigger to override it when I need additional power.

People do tend to get the wires on the tube mounted units caught on things and rip them out...just gotta beware that it's there and try not to.

No by all means keep going, I wasn't really a part of the debate. I took a couple zipties and attached the wires to the tube so they aren't just hanging out everywhere because I had caught them on my old blower.
