Also, what made you get the cheetah?
the small yellow lever directly under the seat is to adjust the seat forward and backwards. the big lever with the black knob is to adjust the suspension softer or stiffer. and I decided to go with a cheetah, because i demoed one two or three years ago when they first came out and fell in love with how much more comfortable it was then my tiger cub and how much faster it was, a. because it has a 61 deck, and b. because it goes 12mph in low range and 16mph in high range, and yes i make passes at wide open in both ranges. 12mph with sharp blades leaves a good cut, 16mph with sharp blades will still leave a nice cut, just has to be very smooth to go that fast and it has to be a low cut but its very nice being able to hold 15 gallons between two tanks plus the 34hp kohler i ordered with the mower is great, air cooled and lots of power.
