    I have got a Bobcat hydro wb and need a little info.. The ground speed control lever moves forward on its on while mowing. This mower will speed up on it's on even while going up hill. I am wearing my hands out with having to keep constant pressure on the pistol grips to control the speed.
    Anyone had this problem? Can anyone tell me how to solve this problem?
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Pretty easy to fix. The speed control lever is tensioned through friction washers. All you have to do is tighten the 6" bolt and lock nut to add more friction which will keep your lever in place. Check the tension on the lever after you tighten so that you don't over tighten.
