I just pick up a brand new arien 921030 Deluxe 28 and for me even in the 1st gear it still feel a little fast so is there a way to make it go a little slower or just have to get use to it

WOW, I found speed 1 to be a snail's pace. I don't know of any way to slow it. Running the engine at a lower speed, other than full throttle, isn't advised.

Welcome aboard, L !!

There might be a little wiggle room in the adjustment for the disc that controls the drive speeds. Tradeoff would be that reverse would be faster.

Does reverse seem extremely slow now? Perhaps it's not adjusted correctly.

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

I have a different model Ariens, but I recently adjusted the transmission per my service manual. I had to adjust the gear-selection linkage slightly, and after doing that, 1st gear was slower, and reverse was faster, which was great.

I'd download the service manual, and check the transmission adjustment, if it was me. On mine, it took maybe 5 minutes, I didn't have to take a cover off, or even tip the unit up on its nose.

I'd luv to hear more about this, Red. Can you share where you find the service manuals?

Thanks.

You can download Ariens manuals here:
Ariens Order Owners Manuals

I got the Operator, Parts, and Service manuals for my 3 Ariens machines there, for free. That site is a great resource. You will need your full model number (like 924082), and your serial number.
