That there's worth fixin'
It's a mtd 990. Is it bad to run the motor at lower rpms. Not talkng about mowing but other uses, bottom plowing, cart pulling, etc. It seems like 3600 is awfully high. I was plowing (ripping really) in very rough ground the other day, temps in the 90's, lots of roots and rocks (1/3 throttle) and the trans got hot. Would it have stayed cooler if the engine rpms were higher? Thanks, Rick
