    as fast as the mower will go but make sure you take off slowly or you will spin the tires.

    Probably reach at least a 100 mph droped out of a helicopter.
    On the serious side I would say mow smooth terain at roughly 4.5 max pending growth, how wet it is and what type of turf grass you are going through.
    If you are cutting .25 of an inch in dry thin turf you could probably hit 5 almost 6 mph.
    average cutting speed is 4 mph

    Never had a trans problem. 4 years up and down hills, the belt drive gets the hardest use of all our mowers
