Kobelt has produced an extensive range of Push-Pull Controls to suit not only marine engine installations but also to control other deck machineries.
Unlike some models that are designed for single station, or that can handle two station controls, Kobelt control heads are suitable for single and twin engine applications, which are specified in the Push-Pull Controls catalogue.
The Single, Dual function
The controls that are intended for only one-station control are (a) the single lever single function control heads numbered 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2015; and (b) the single lever dual function control heads numbered 2042, 2043, 2044, 2046, 2047, 2048, 2050 and 2054.
The series 2080 and 2090 are designed for Twin stations, providing a single lever control for clutch and throttle from two stations, and are available in single and twin engine configurations. They are patented designs have proven to be a tremendous success in terms of performance and durability.
Kobelt’s Push-Pull Control Heads are well engineered and non-corrosive, made of bronze and stainless steel to suit the marine environment. Kobelt is the only manufacturer that exclusively uses die-cast bronze components and stainless steel hardware in the construction of controls.
Kobelt Push Pull Control Heads are designed for either 33C or 43C series cables while the heads and adaptor kits are designed to accept the clamp type cable ends. Some control heads will use 60-series cables especially for such heavy duty applications, as a water jet bucket control.
