    Control handle review
    Fast shipping! I actually just used the new control handle today, it was a gamble that paid off, there was only 2 yard machines mowers listed and I did not have any info on my mower, so I took a chance judging by the image, it's not an exact fit, it comes up just a little short but works fine, I purchased this control handle because the original one crumbled and broke in half, for a couple cuts I was using a control handle from a weed eater brand lawn mower, it worked but it was a longer control handle and it created major pain in my hands, I am so glad I took a chance on this replacement part! Thanks!
    Guest - July 6, 2020 Verified Purchase
