Customer Question

I have a DR Power Mower with a 20hp B&S engine. Clearing a field and the governor started surging/ oscillating. Is there an adjustment I can make on the engine for myself? I am under deadline and (predictably) my authorized service dealer says there will be a 6 week + wait for repair. Any advice is a blessing! Gina

Hello, m name is***** am a certified DR DEaler and will be glad to help you. I would check your Gov springs and rod on engine for any damage. There are parts that you yourself can order from DR and install. You can also call DR and they are excellent at helping customers with their products. Please let me know if there is anything I can help with further. there are a number of things it could be, but iwould start with the governor springs and rod.

Also try and move the governor manually and see if the engine responds. If it doesn't respond manually, then there is an internal governor issue. If it does respond manually, replace springs and/or rod
