I have a Web 16inch self propelled lawn mower and want to slow

This answer was rated:

I have a Web 16inch self propelled lawn mower and want to slow the speed of the drive system. With arthritic knees the machine drives too fast. Is it possible to slow the forward speed without slowing the engine speed?
There is NO adjustment for the speed of travel and if you lower the engine speed, then it will not have the power to cut the grass! The transmission is either on or off, with no speed adjustment. All you can do is hold back on the unit. sorry.
