Who Uses A Hand Throttle?

I was curious who uses a hand throttle? Do you use it all the time? Where did you mount it? At what points while wheeling do you think it helps? Is it just a silly add on that you didnt need? Is it the best thing since sliced bread?

Thoughts........I'm thinking of trying one out. Thought it may be something new to try

I rigged one up just under the shift knob. I would think it comes in handy when a little more throttle is needed but you also need a 3rd foot. Im gonna try it out this weekend.

If you wheel a stick or want to idle up for on board air I can see it being a big help. I've seen several mount a bicycle hand brake or gear selector on the gear shift for easy access. Use it any time you need a third foot for that other pedal.
I like sliced bread better.

I like mine. Use it for when you still need to use the brake and inclines.

I've found times I wish I had one. My feet don't contourt well to cover all the pedals and use them properly at the same time. Hasn't been a real issue where its a must have. I may do it for shits and giggles after I get my motor fixed up.

If your running a stick it's sliced bread, if ya got an auto it's a conversation.

I run an auto. My thought was to mount one so my daughter can wheel and be harnessed safely but then I couldn't really think of a situation where it would be handy for me. Thanks for the feedback guys

Its pretty funny to flip it up to full throttle so when your dbag buddy starts the rig it revs up real high at camp at 8am
