    Landscape Supply is my local dealer. Travis always takes good care of us. I have 2 of the EBZ8000 w/ the throttle of the left. I've always had them on the left side. The left or right throttle is more of personal feeling. More people in this area use the left from what I've seen. Hope that helps.

    Use the throttle on the right.

    It has cruise control on it so you can leave it locked on or control with your finger tip. Leaves your left free to do other things.....

    I find it easier to control with a pistol grip throttle........

    all personal choice.....
