Hand Controls
#1
Does anyone have experience of driving a Berlingo with hand controls please?

I am particularly interested in whether there is any roll-back on hill starts, but any info welcome.

Thanks

Hello, are you asking about some type of hand controls that a handicapped driver would use?? I know the B9 models automatically prevent backward rolling on release of the brakes on a hill for two or three seconds. Might also work for other control arrangements. I really enjoy that feature as I live in hilly country.

Thank-you for your reply.
Yes - I am talking disabled hand controls. They use both hands so I imagine it would be difficult to release the hand-brake, which is why I have asked this question.

Then I would think that since the hand controls operate the pedal brakes the anti-roll feature would kick in as well. I believe that works on inclines of 5 degrees or greater.
