    I recently purchased a used John Deere 220B walk behind greens mower to cut my bent grass lawn. It seems to work well except for the speed the mower travels.

    When I engage the throttle in it's lowest setting, the mower still takes off like a bat out of hell.

    Obviously, this makes it hard to cut grass evenly @ .5". My lawn is fairly level, but there are some uneven terrain.

    I've looked through the on-line manual and cannot find anything. Is there an adjustment I might be missing?
