Ever wish you could make your lawn mower run a little harder and a little faster? Want to try speeding up the time it takes to finish mowing? If so, try some of these tips to make adjustments to your mower.
Changing the pulley system
If your mower is belt driven, you can modify the sizes of the pulley system. Generally, increase the size of the pulley at the rear of the mower and increase the size of the pulley attached to the motor. These small adjustments will help speed up the mower.
By shortening the spring on your mower’s regulator, you will make your mower go faster. Alternatively, you can remove the spring entirely. This is a trick of the trade that is often done when someone is looking to use their lawn mower as a racing vehicle!
Add fuel to tank
Always run your mower with a full tank of gas. This will help you run at higher speeds and much more efficiently. At the same time, check the oil and, if necessary, top it up.
