    Does anyone here know how to increase speed on the Turf Tracer beyond the 2mph that is stock? I find reverse quite slow on the ExM hydros.....

    I'm posting here and not on the ExMark forum as I know they will not want me to increase the speed for "safety" reasons....

    There is only one cure for your problem ! Sell or give the Turf Tracer to someone you really hate. Then go get a Gravely Promaster 320.

    The Gravely will probably go 14 mph forward and about 8 mph in reverse !

    Scag, Exmark, Bobcat - nobody makes a unit that is half as good as the Gravely 320 !

    The Gravely 320 is an outfront no? Hardly as practical as a Walk.

    & I can Guarantee you the 320 does Not do Close to 8 mph In Reverse or 14 in forward.

    Get rid of whatever's limiting the rearward stroke on your hand control's or on the pump's swash plate.

    Wow! I screwed up ! I got mixed up on the name of the model of mower.

    He said Turf Tracer - and I was thinking Turf Ranger [3 wheel rider]

    So I just plain blew it - sorry about that.
