Increased radius of the main drive
pulley to correct for lower RPM. The
blades still turn a little bit slower
but it works fine, there is plenty of
torque to keep them moving fast enough
to cut nicely even when mulching a big
pile of leaves.
Rangeat least an acre even with these really
old T105's...
