I know this has been discussed in the past, but I wanted to see if there were any new views. I was speaking with my dealer (the owner of the shop) the other day and mentioned that I engage my blades at half throttle due to not wanting to wear the electric clutch. He told me that you are supposed to engage at full throttle. He said it's the opposite of what you'd expect, but said that's what you're supposed to do. I trust this guy as he is no spring chicken and has been in the business his entire life as it was his fathers shop prior. I thought we had agreed half throttle was better in past threads which I'm just too darn lazy to find. I could be wrong. Thoughts?
