New stainless foot throttles!

Hi all,

After a few weeks of testing, waiting for parts and more testing, our new foot throttles are now ready to go, adding to the range of hand controls and trim etc indicators we offer.

As per usual, they're kept as simple yet as attractive as possible, whilst offering a throttle which can be used for any push or pull application with just a simple re-positioning of the actuating lever. Bolted to the bottom (as in the pics) gives a pull for throttle as per mercury engines, whilst bolting it to the top of the arm gives a push throttle as per evinrude or yamaha.

Construction

Construction is entirely from 316 stainless steel other than the bronze bushes on all rotation points. The two main parts are CNC cut from 2mm sheet. This makes for a unit which stays looking good with no corrosion of any form, whilst being indestructable under normal racing use. No more cracked cast ally parts leaving you with the orange flag up!

Design

There are several subtle design features which seperate this unit from others on the market.
  • Twin return springs, if one fails the other will still return
  • Adjustable limit stops for idle and full throttle
  • 4 position adjustable return spring tensioner
  • All parts contained safely behind pedal where they can't be hit by flailing feet!
  • Large supportive pedal capable of taking a size 13 shoe
  • Pedal hinged 2" from bottom allowing you to brace against the pedal without throttling, more control when landing hard!
  • 5mm thick main armature currently with 10mm linkage with rose joints. (this linkage may be replaced with another 5mm linkage to give more simplicity).
  • Bronze bushes on all moving parts for longer life

Pricing

These throttles are now available at £175 each, we can supply 33c cables to suit at extra cost if required.

To conclude, I don't believe there's a better foot throttle on the market, let alone one specifically designed for hard offshore use. Our main aim was to create a throttle able to withstand the hardest of use in offshore race boats, no matter what the engine. This throttle can be made to accomodate twin engine boats on request.

If anyone has any questions, suggestions or observations, please feel free to let me know.

All the best,

James

i have atteched a drawing with some dimensions on.

the weight of the model on the computer is 2.5kg will check this on the actual one tho.

the pedal is sized to take a size 13 shoes with ease as both myself and larby have big feet and have found this a problem in the past.

I'd say around the £220 mark but would have to do some working out tomorrow if you're seriously interested?

What's the depth of it?? Can't see it in the dimensions.

Can a mercury attachment be configured so the cable runs forward and not backwards?

i have attached a diffrent drawing with the dimensions in 3d. hope this is what you were after glen.

we will be able to offer rear mount fitting kits but it will make them a little longer. This will enable you to bring the cable in through the console/from the bow. (will get some drawings/pics up soon of this and multi engine setups).

Hiya,

We normally keep them in stock but have just sold out of all the current batch! (they're selling even better than I expected!)
We'll have a new, bigger batch on order in the next weekish so will have plenty again shortly.

Cheers, James

Foot throttle

Hey how much for a twin rig throttle.
Can you split one engine from the other.
Would you be able to get one ready for January so I can start testing in the new year.
