    On my older Ferris walk behinds the handles you squeeze are getting to where they are in further than the newer mowers and they don't go quite as fast. Should I adjust this out using the tracking adjustment behind the back plate or take the linkage off the handles and turn them in to get them out where they used to be?

    Is this a belt drive right? My Ferris belt drive, I moved the handles a bit.

    I was thinking DD hydro- could be wrong.

    linkage off the handles...the adjustment behind the back plate is mainly for tracking, not speed so much.

    What would happen if you kept turning the tracking ones forward? Would you gain speed and eventualy lose reverse? With the handle linkage is it making it the wheels move faster or simply giving you more handle to get full extension of the linkage, mainly for reverse? Hope I'm making sense.lol
