    Does the 8000 come in a Tube...Dealer finally has Stock & They're All Hip...He's Checking But his Rep. isn't known for his Wealth of Information....

    I have the right hand tube (model EBZ 8000 RH) model on order as of today. Dealer checked warehouse before ordering it for me and said they are available. Hope he is correct and I am using it next week. I do not want the left hip throttle(EBZ 8000).

    i love the hip mounted cruise control, omg i could never use tube mounted throttles they are so much more work to play with the trigger and stuff.

    Yes ours does, as did the ones I had seen. I would never get one with out the tube mounted throttle. Why would you want to have the controls where it takes two hands instead of just one? Everything is in my right hand, left hand free.

    This year I bought the Red Max 7001 with the throttle on the left and tube on right for $450.00. seems that the trigger on the tube would be more of a pain than better than the left hand throttle.I tried both and preferred the left handed throttle.It is much easier to manuver when blowing out cramped beds and small spaces where the trigger would be in the way.
    Just my opinion. payup
