Well, I decided on the Red Max EB 7001 blower. I will go to order it at the dealer tomorrow. I do have one last question though, which is better, a right hand or left hand throttle? Is one more durable than the other? Right now I think I'm going to get the right hand throttle, since I like having one hand free, but I wanted to hear from you guys first. I do want to make sure the right hand throttle would be durable, before I buy. Thanks in advance!
