    I have a honda Master's series 21" hydro. Does anyone know a way to get a faster ground speed. Are there any larger back wheels or anything. The unit just goes about 3/4 of my normal walk speed even with the RPM adjusted correctly. The speed was about right when I bought it a year ago, but it has slowed a little.

    Ditto what saw man said. My Honda Masters hydro did the same thing. Check the manual, it has detailed directions for adjusting the cable. If I remember, you have to align two indicators for proper adjustment.
