    So Ive seen alot of talk on here about RPM's and I have always felt my Snapper 61/25hp was a little sluggish. I checked it and it was 3345 with the deck on.

    By what I've seen here it should be at 3750. I adjusted it to 3757/no deck and its 3737 with the deck on.

    I let it run for several min. and it never went over 3750 running the deck; as a side note I never run it full throttle unless the deck is on.

    I have not tried it out yet, Will this really make alot of difference? I also have a toro 52/23hp and it always seems to have lots of power, so I check it for kicks and its at 3400 with the deck, but I left it because it seems to run great

    What do yall think?
