Toro Hydro WB reverse

I just picked up a low hour Toro Hydro WB, 52'' deck. So far I'm loving it. As a homeowner who's been mowing with a nice tractor I'm really loving the speed increase and the cut smoothness.

Problem/Question: When I back up I have to help it if there's any resistance. By resistance I mean a two inch piece of metal that it had to go over to back on my trailer, a small hill, etc. None of this is with my big body on the velke. Seems like the right wheel is a little more sluggish than the left.

I thought the beauty of a WB is so that you can back yourself easily out of places you nose into. The guy I bought it from said he thought they might have adjusted the hydro valves to slow the reverse down.

I've seen on the mower how you loosen the bolt to adjust the valves. Should I give that a whirl? Should I go see my dealer?

Any other thoughts? I appreciate the help. I'm not unhappy with my new toy, I could just be more happy. Help.

Thanks, Will
