    I own the pb-603 and it has a tube throttle on the right side.
    i like it better than the stihl. my echo's start on the first pull.

    My PB 60 HT does not have tube throttle but instead the throttle is on an extension on the left side. I didn't like it at first but I now prefer it. It is a tough unit but heavy as lead. Homer mentioned one time that it would make a good boat anchor and I agree.

    And I still feel that way!:cry:

    I did try out the new bad azz Echo blower and it was much lighter than the one I've had for YEARS , it just keeps running and running................anyway, the new one has some power and it might be my next one. The throttle on the left side ---to me--- is easier than on the tube.

    What would you do with your other hand anyway? :rolleyes: something and get off them 3 numbers your on...........:blob2:
