Question about Garden
I'm not sure what you mean by going in faster but if that's the case pull your arms back quicker. If you want it to go faster in reverse then adjust the screws on the motion levers located kind of at the base of the levers. I hope this helps as the adjustment is pretty self explanatory once you find it. Their are numerous other adjustments you'll be learning as you go that will come in handy and make you enjoy your mower more. Such as mower disengagement, I hated that just because I wanted to back up one inch and the blades stop turning! Well, guess what. There's an adjustment that will disable this little feature located in about the same spot as the other adjustment. Search it and figure out all the neat little secrets and I hope you'll come to love yours as much as I do mine. I've had my Z Force 50 for over two years now and have mowed for 150 hours in that little time and I still love it. I just wish someone would come out with a cheaper after market blade because you will be going through them.

First, check the level of the hydraulic fluid (usually the dipstick is right inside the fill cap, and you just raise the seat to access it). If it's low, fill 'er up with the right fluid.
If that's OK, test if the lack of 'pull' affects the left wheel in both forward and reverse -- try going up a hill forward, and backing up it in reverse. If it affects both directions, maybe you will be lucky -- the problem could be that the bypass for the left hydraulic motor has opened somehow. (The bypass is used to let you push the mower by hand in case of an engine failure, etc.) So look for a fat-headed bolt sticking out of the left hydraulic motor. Check that it's tight -- rotate it just like you would tighten a bolt, clockwise. If it wasn't tight, that may be the problem; just tighten it and try the mower.
If this doesn't resolve it, you probably have a problem in the hydraulic valves, hoses, or motor, and a trip to the dealer is needed. Probably won't be cheap, sorry my friend. Good luck, and please rate if this was helpful, thanks!
