Adjusting the position of the other grip lower on the shaft is easy. Its angle and position can be custom set to where it’s comfortable and helps to balance the tool in your hands. The non-adjustable handle is where the trigger is located. The user has to cock his/her wrist at an angle that after awhile gets downright awkward and even painful. In today’s two-hour stint I took several short breaks in order to “shake out” the discomfort in the trigger-squeezing hand.
What would it take to put an adjustable trigger-handle on the machine? It could be at a 45° or so angle to the shaft, and even tiltable beyond that if you want to get extra-fancy.
