Need Help How fast

Hey guys I've used the search and can't seem to find the needed information. How do you set a constant ground speed with a ZTR in spray applications?

It looks like that was a very good question. With gear driven tractors this isn't a concern. Set the throttle for a predetermined motor rpm, select the accepted gear, & go.
But ZTR's don't often have an analog tach & the small digital ones are basically useless....or are they? It seems to me that the only known/consistant speeds on a ZTR are top speed & stopped. Anything in between would be hard to find & hold.
Quite a few people on this site use these things, someone should see this & respond.
