Depending the model some have adjustable cable length thus varying the forward speed. Check you owners manual for specific info.

If the mower motor speed cannot be controlled, then you cannot control the walking speed.

And most transmissions are directly connected to the motor pulley so that if you slow down down the mower's motor, you also slow down the blade speed and cutting power.

Can I control speed of self propelled mower ?


most self propelled mowers should have a variable speed. the more you squeeze the handle the faster it will go. it is on a spring lever. as some people cant walk as fast as others. some just kick in at a set speed.

How do adjust for Speed stability on Lawn-Boy mower. It hunts up and down.


Speed control for motor is controlled by an automatic governor, so there isn't any adjustments. Surging is caused by an air leak. Has the air filter been changed? Spray card cleaner around that side of the engine to find the air leak. Does it have a choke adjustment? Make and model would be handy in answering this question!

John deere instructions


Your mower doesn't have enough power to handle very thick grass at high speed. You need to go slower across the lawn. That's easy to do if this is a push mower (just don't walk so fast) or if it's a self-propelled model with a speed control. But if it's a single-speed model you'll have to mow the lawn in fits and starts: squeeze the lever to move it forward; release it when you hear it bogging down; wait for the motor to reach full speed; squeeze the lever to move it forward again; repeat. Also, is the grass very high? If so, try setting the cutting height higher on the first pass, then lower it for a second pass. Finally, make sure the blade is sharp.

Husqvarna too slow when mowing


Some self-propelled mowers include a speed control, but sometimes it may seem that no matter how you adjust it, the mower just creeps along at a snail's pace. Most likely this isn't a mechanical malfunction, but an adjustment is probably needed.

Very tall or thick grass can bog down a self-propelled mower, but adjusting the height of the blade may allow it to roll through and cut the grass at normal speeds. If the blade is low, the amount of cutting required may slow down the movement of the entire mower. The frame of the mower may also stick in the high grass. Raise the blade little by little until the mower rolls at the appropriate speed. Going up hills may cause a similar response.

It's possible the drive belt on the mower can slip. Inspect this part to see if it is loose or cracked, and replace the belt to restore power.
