Where is the throttle on these new mowers?
I was at the store today, and picked up a Husqvarna 87521RS. Price was good, and had the 8.75 Torque OHV B&S. This version tested out well in CR and the Honda version with the same deck, etc tested out great in popular mechanics as well.
I have not purchase a mower since 1994 when I purchased a Murry with a 3.8HP Techumsah. I sold it yesterday. It was still running great after all these years. Always starts on the 1st pull even after 13 years.
My question is this. Where is the control for the throttle? Even my old $120 Murry had this. I then booted up my laptop and looked on-line, and to my surprize I brought up a pictures of mowers from stores all over the web and could find no mowers with an adjustable throttle.
What is up with this? When my grass is not too high I like to low with a slower engine setting since power is not needed. The manual even states that it is not adjustable. Are there no mowers that have this? Does anyone know of a new mower in the $350 (MAX) price range that can has a throttle?
I must be going crazy. It is probably just my mower, and the pictures maybe just don't have the trottle pictured, but it is there.
P.S. Would love a recommendation of another mower if it has the adjustable trottle. I am not a big fan of Honda, but am open to them if this feature is there.
Thanks in advance.
