need help making a selection ,
I have an Echo PB602. I prefer the left mounted control.
thats what i'm looking at , either the 602 or the 603, same specs just different controls
Very nice models. Saw some at the shop today while looking for a trimmer and picking up some engine parts.:blob3:
I used teh BR400 and thought I would never like the control on my left side. When I got the Shindiawa I really liked it and now all I have are on the left. I have RedMAx also but I don't like the stiff arm, the flexable tube is better.
Ditto what Kirbyslawn said. I didn't think I'd like them as much and now that's all I buy. My workers were resistent as heck when I first made the switch. But now they love them too. The one Blower we have with a throttle on the right side never gets used.
It's hard to explain but they are just more ergonomic and comfortable. It's more balanced. Hard to explain until you've used both for a while. But onews with the left handed throttle control are definitely a lot nicer.
I agree with Jim and Ray. I was a little worried about switching to left side controls. Now, I don't like the right hand throttle on the tube anymore.
Well coming from one of the few leftys in the world I love it on my side. Travis
one more vote for the hip mount. I like to keep both sides of the brain busy.
I'm here for the upset! LOL. I like right side mounted, although I've never used the hip, I could PROBABLY get used to it...
