    When mowing with my 1800GF (19 hp diesel) is it a good idea to operate the engine at full throttle? With all the gas powered mowers that I have owned, it was recomended to run at full throttle.

    Thanks in advance,

    Full throttle - - primarily to achieve the fastest blade tip speed. This will give you a cleaner CUT (with sharpened blades), rather then TEARING (and stressing, even browning) your grass.
