Hand Control Levers for lawnmowers allow workers with lower extremity impairments to control the foot pedal on the left side of the mower by hand. Most brakes and clutches are controlled by foot pedals, preventing workers with lower extremity impairments to operate the equipment. Hand Control Levers for lawnmowers are bolted onto foot pedal shank to prevent it from pivoting.
Hand Control Levers for lawnmowers have a flat plate at the bottom with 4 bolt holes, and a second clamping plate with matching bolt holes. The lever is attached by ‘sandwiching’ the pedal shank between the two flat plates and tightening the bolts. The lever is 30-inches-long and has two slight bends away from the mower hood and towards the mower seat.
The levers may need to be bent for the specific operator or lawnmower being used. A local mechanic or lawnmower repair shop could shape the lever specifically as needed.
Workers with common conditions such as these would benefit from a Hand Control Lever for lawnmowers.
