    Hi guys, I'm looking for a clamp-on type throttle lever that can be controlled via cable and remove handle for milling. Is there anything off the shelf that is reasonably priced and durable? I've searched the internet and see this question get asked a thousand times but all were custom made solutions. I'm actually surprised there isn't a product for this offered by any of the CSM manufactures.

    Something like this is what I'm looking for...

    I sent them an email because they dont list it separately. Hopefully they will sell one or I will have to make my own.

    I started out with that type of remote trigger (based on a bicycle brake arm) on my 076, but within a dozen or so logs I notice significant wear on the trigger so I had to replace the trigger. I thought the rubber brake pad would protect the trigger but it didn't. Then I tried out various forms of padding like sponge rubber (which wore straight through within a couple of cuts. The best thing I found was hydraulic hose (not too hard and not too soft) but it still wore the trigger.

    Thats I went for a direct action on the trigger lever wire arm and a MC throttle attached to the wrap handle. Of all the mods on my mill I rate this number one.

    Could be the 076 - it's a bit of a vibe monster.

    Some companies amaze me. @Trx250r180, I called Norwood and asked about the throttle actuator and the lady was helpful in finding the parts and confirming all I needed. She then went and asked another person some questions because they have updated (rev'ed) the parts and the numbers in the manual we were both looking at are no longer available. When she came back she told me I needed to provide the serial number from the mill for them to confirm what parts I needed... I told her the parts she is looking up are generic and are not specific to the mill. She then told me I had to provide the serial number off the mill for them to even sell me a part! Unbelievable! If you were in the business of making products wouldn't you want to sell them to who ever will buy them?

    I give up, I'm making my own out of a bicycle brake. It'll be cheaper in the end.

    This is garbage. One company I got into a discussion with about this told me their spare parts logistics required they keep the parts only for their customers. I suggested they ask their spare parts manufacturer to make a few more so they could make some more sales.
