    this is for anyone w back or shoulder problems.
    i took two handles like fit on the shaft of curved trimmers.
    put them on the end of my lazer control.these are circular
    handles. this allows me to operate the controls with wrist action backb an forth ,also keeps the arms down closer to the body.
    this way my elbos rest on the arm rest and allow full controll.
    certainly not for everyone ,but u know if u have the troubles i mentioned. mabe it will work for u.

    What a great idea. I find myself moving the seat up once in awhile just for the change in positio for the back. The only thing is though, is wouldn't this interfere with backing up, as you would have as much room to pull the handles back?

    yea this would depend on the individual machines,and person.
    with my lazer it allows for just about right exstention.
    the deal can be adjusted to suit. also the controlls can easily be pushed around out of the way,for normal use. it is most effective in areas where u are really leaving your arms out for long strait runs etc. good luck.
