Topic: What engine rpm for mowing with a JD 1023e?

I bought a new JD 1023E and now use it for mowing. When I rev the engine wide open to drive the blades, the blades feel like they are rotating far too fast. Half throttle seems to be the desired speed for rotating the blades.

I have an old JD 188XL and running the engine wide open for mowing is the normal thing to do.

Anybody know the rpm range of the 1023e for mowing?

Being a new tractor I am surprised it does not tell you the correct engine speed to obtain ( 540 rpm P.T.O. ? ) in the tractor"s operator"s manual.
