    By the looks of it ground speed is regulated with the throttle control per the manual, My boss has two greens mowers one being a Deere and neither have a transport lever. When the clutch is released the belt slips in the gearbox pulley so your free spinning the gearbox, They work like a hydro machine...... Still a little hard to push even with the bypass valves opened.......

    Very well could be...... Or guides out of adjustment. Remove the belt cover, With engine off- clutch disengaged try moving the machine while watching the belt to see if it's slipping in the pulleys.....
