Redundancy. You had to squeeze either the left or the right while the auger or drive was engaged so that if you fell the machine would shut off. A lot of people taped them down or removed them.

They are called DEADMAN SWITCHES. you have to keep 1 paw locked down on it. in order to do anything. If you are tooling along down a big open highway and slip and fall the ENGINE is now DEAD ON ARRIVAL. But if the contacts on the handle bars are shot or gone with the Schwinn those parts are now all NLA!!!!!!!!!!!. Had them on "SR" when I raised him up from THE DEAD. Have no clue if they still worked or not so I just ripped them off of him. As long as you have 1 paw clamped down on them. you can double clutch shifting gears till the cows come home to be milked.

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!
