Which do you prefer? May as well keep the backpack questions rolling.
tube throttle is what I like
The tube ones that I have had in the past always seems to bind up over extended usage.
I don't mind the other type as most of the time I have it wide open.
I prefer the tube mount, keeps the left hand free to move branches and other stuff.
Hip here to each his own,it all goes to what u have learned on.
I prefer the hip throttle.
Tube mounted. There was a thread on this not all that long ago.
I don't think anyone with hip mount throttles keeps their hand on it, it's always free when you need it.
Why I only buy Tubes now?
If you or one of your guys goes to a very small back yard to trim he can take the blower drop it, trim, & then blow the drive w/trimmer in left hand on the way out & still have throttle control....Saves a second trip to the back yard. Lots of other reasons its nice to have throttle control while holding something but that's the Biggie for us....
When I use to work for LawnGodfather those hip mounts were nice. I went ahead and bought the tube, I often still think of those days and the hip mount.
