Are you familiar with governor speed regulators on engines? There is a flap on a hinge under the flywheel cover which is moved by the air fins on the flywheel, which tries to close the throttle. There is also a spring that tries to open (increase) the throttle. So it's a contest between those two opposing forces! Increase the spring tension, and you will have more speed. But don't overdo it, or you could blow your engine! Good luck!

Check the governer, its a lever that pulls the throttle plate from the engine side. Try manually overriding it (twist it open as the engine's running) and see if that does it.

I can push the handle all the way in, but I get very little speed from the mower.

Your throttle cable likely needs adjusting.
It should be fastened on the engine with a screw. Loosen that screw and adjust while engine is running then tighten Keep fingers away from underneath while engine is running.
