Hi. I have just acquired this machine to assist/take over the cutting of grass at my allotment as I seemed to spend more time pushing my old Ajax Mk4 around than growing! Anyway the mower works very well (not bad for £20) but the rear powered roller is quite aggressive in that it pulls very strongly and too fast and I am not a weakling. This happens at any setting of the throttle - slow or fast. Now this may be a feature of the machine but I can manage it by 'feathering' the clutch engagement lever but this is not good practice. The manual talks about the traction clutch for the rear roller but gives no further detail. Is this something I have to live with or is there an adjustment? I also have an old Webb 18" standard with a driven rear roller which is much easier to control and turns much slower, increasing speed in conjunction with the throttle.It's too big for the allotment though. Any help or suggestions would be most welcome.
