Surging at top rpm? That's not normal. How do you figure that's extra power?

Engine manufacturer sets governor linkage to insure an RPM, detrimental to the engine, is never reached. Mower manufacturer designs a mower deck based on a safe engine RPM. and wheel speed. Proceed with caution or you will be in the market for a new mower.

How fast do you want the mower to go? Are you racing? How long do you want the engine do last?
