Hello,

I have a 2007 2305 with 145hrs on it. Love this tractor and havn't had one issue with it. Lately, the trottle won't stay at the set RPM I put it at without falling down. It will stay at full throttle but won't stay at less than that, it drops down to idle. Have any of you had this problem? If so what do I need to do to make it like it was new again? I suppose over time the trottle has just become less and less "tight" per say due to up and down use. I Hope I'm making sense here and thanks for any help.

Is the lever actually going back down to the idle position or is the engine just dieing out.

Lift the hood and follow the cable until you see a couple of nuts. Adjust accordingly. slkpk

It just slowly drops down towards idle when I'm on it mowing if I don't have it full throttle.

I see the two nuts and will adjust them. Do you know what they do? the cable runs through a braket with a nut on each side then through the throttle assembly. Do the nuts just keep tension on the cable? If so the cable does have a small amount of play when it is in the idle position, say a1/4" or so before it engages the RPM's.

Hope this helps.
There are also some spring washers on the hand throttle shaft that can be adjusted to hold more tension.
I have the same issue, MOSTLY when I'm doing stuff NOT at full throttle, but today the vibrations of the tiller kept pushing the RPM's down.. had to keep pushing the throttle back up.

My 2305 throttle was too stiff, so I raised gauge panel and partially removed right side cowling that surrounds throttle lever shaft enough to get wrenches on tension nut (seen in exploded view in previous post). works fine now. good luck.

Mine did the same right after I bought it. The dealer repaired it under warranty but the service guy said it was not an easy fix as (if I remember correctly) the entire dash had to come out.

Thanks for all the help here guys. We've been gone this past week camping. Got home last night and had to mow and it drives me nuts having to constantyly push the throttle back up. I'm going out now to fix it with the pics provided and the link with actually pictures. Should be easy.....
