This guide will take you from general questions to a specific Kobelt product to meet your needs. If you are replacing another manufacturer’s
control, use the replacement guide on the bottom of page 5. After selecting a control, you will probably need some accessories to connect
the control head to cables, or the engine. Please refer to the accessories section on page 24.

If you want to be in control at 1 or 2 locations (“stations”), then push-pull controls will work for you. If you have 3 or more stations,
push-pull might work but generally people should use Electronic, or Pneumatic or Wire-Over-Pulley controls.
We recommend Electronic controls for most three station systems.

Push-Pull is a mechanically connected system. It uses cables to connect control heads to the clutch and throttle. If the total length of
cable is less than 50 feet (15 meters), push-pull can work for you. If the cables need to have many bends, or the connection length is
more than 50 feet, Electronic controls would be the best choice. That depends largely on how easy it is to operate the clutch and engine
interfaces. Some are very stiff and need a powered actuator.
There are vessels with 80 feet of push-pull cable that work well. If you need more than 50 feet for a push-pull system, please contact us.
We would need to evaluate your requirements. Please tell us:
- the number of cable bends,
- the cable length, and
- the number of stations.
We will give you our recommendation for a good working control system.
Tech Tip: For 2 station systems, the cable length is considered to be the total length for both stations. For example, a 20 foot cable to one station, plus a 30 foot run for the other station,
is a total of 50 feet. If you are using more than 30 feet of cable, you should use the 40 series cable. It will last longer and run smoother.

Some people prefer to separate the clutch and throttle into separate handles.
Others prefer combining the clutch and throttle in one handle. This is called “Single Lever” control: From the neutral position, push
forward to engage the clutch and then push further for forward speed. Reverse is achieved by pulling back from the middle position to
engage the clutch. Pulling back further would increase the reverse speed.
