    I have a 17hp Turf Tracer HP and it seems slow and I don't think it is going as fast as it should on level 5. Wondering what I can check on or what I can do to make it go faster?
    Thanks

    NEUSWEDE,

    When is the last time you serviced the hydrolic system? This could be one reason for the slow speed. If you have a machine that you know the speed, compare it to your TTHP. The best test is if you have a handheld GPS that gives mph.

    It is slower than my navigator. Never had the hydros serviced. It only has around 300 hours on it and has been this speed since the day I bought it. This came up when I spoke to a service manager and he said it should run circles around my navigator.

    Actually, your Navigator is about one full mph faster than your TTHP.

    TTHP = 6.2mph
    Navigator = 7.0mph

    I was under the impression of the opposite. So How do I increase the speed on the TTHP then, differnt pulleys any hydro adjustments?
    I know there is a way I have seen TTHP's that are much faster than mine
    thanks
