ThanksThanks for sharing that information. That explains alot. I can understand your frustration with both the "non adjustable" engine speed (idle and full load) and not having this type of control on the control panel. My old Ariens had that "engine speed" lever on the handlebar. My Honda lawnmower I purchased two years ago has adjustable engine speed too.
As for the dealer, that's too bad about delivery and being only once a year in a large order. That's rough. Appreciate your taking the time to post. Thank you !!!
And to note, it was the *other* dealer in town that gave me the bad info on the throttle. Whn I found that they were charging over list and the bigger dealer (that I had dealt with) about 8 miles away was well under for the same machine, I never went back. I guess the big order saves them shipping, since they appear to sell a lot of gear! The closer guy is handy for parts, though . . .about 5 mins from the house and stocks almost everything.
