If you are referring to the mower deck doesn't spin as fast as you lower the deck, then I would check that the deck belt is installed correctly as while lowering the deck, you are putting more pressure on the belt and possibly binding it up. Also check that the spindles are not broken or loose. Let me know and we can troubleshoot from there
