No one mows at 15 mph, so what difference does it make?

Exactly!! Go ahead and mow at 15 mph and then tell us how the cut quality was. Then, tell us how bad back your hurts after being tossed around. Ground speed is just for transport purposes only. The 15 mph is great in large condo complexes and similar applications where you can go from lawn to lawn.

I mowed this lawn at 15 mph! I can mow it at this speed (and wsith a mulching deck too) every month of the year except July, August, and September. Those months it gets too thick to cut much above 8-10 mph. What type of lawns do you mow.....must be rutted fields.
