ever have your mower slow down a little?

I dont have a tach on my hp52(getting one soon) but yesterday on a large commercial property when I was going from and to the trailer it seemed the groundspeed across the parking lot was much slower than usual.

It sarts easy, runs well, filters are clean.

Ever have this problem? how did you fix it?

I am a moron when it comes to engine performance issues...thanks much

I had that same feeling today when mowing, seemed like my Exmark wanted to just bog down much easier than before. I'm not much of a mechanic, but I'm going to see if I can fix it. I'm open to any ideas as well.

Go hard, go fast, or go home

Ever think with the cold weather how much your tire pressure drops compared to the spring/summer??? Check it. You could be a few pounds low, making the tires smaller...........
