    Bought a Bob-Cat 36" XM model . Works great except for speed control , when I shift the lever for a different speed no change in speed. Does this mean the Variable Pulley is the problem ??? Help me out the Manual has not arrived yet.

    Assuming this is a used mower, with a variable speed gearbox, NOT a peerless transmission, it sounds like it isn't adjusted right, or the keys in the gearbox are worn.
