    Bought my Fastrack 3 yr's ago. With a Honda 20-52,Love the way it does the job, Started to notice that is was not throwing the grass like it used-to. Checked engine rpm
    was only turning 3300 rpm, re-clocked to 3500. It now throw's grass about 100"s. Truly unbelievable, It now will cut grass as fast as I can control the tractor. Question: Is 4% over Mfg. recommendation going to over clock the deck
    or anything else?

    Common item that is overlooked a lot is the engine RPM's.
    It is something that needs to be checked on a normal maintenance routine.
    4% over what?
