Hand throttles, also known as hand accelerators or hand controls, are mechanical devices that allow the operator to control and regulate the speed or throttle of an engine using manual input. They are commonly used in various vehicles, machinery, and equipment where precise control of engine speed is required. Hand throttles are typically operated by hand, either through a lever or a twist grip mechanism. The operator can adjust the throttle position to increase or decrease the engine speed, thus controlling the power output and vehicle or equipment performance.

In automotive applications, hand throttles are commonly used in vehicles with manual transmissions, such as Bulk Powder Tankers They provide the driver with direct control over the engine's RPM (revolutions per minute), allowing for smoother acceleration, precise throttle response, and better control in challenging terrains or driving conditions.

In industrial machinery and equipment, hand throttles are often used in applications where the engine speed needs to be adjusted according to specific tasks or operating conditions. This can include generators, pumps, lawn mowers, and various types of power equipment. Hand throttles allow the operator to match the engine speed to the required power output, improving efficiency and control.
