The f525 is super slow in reverse so I bought a pedal off eBay that fits in place of the small reverse pedal that is taller and should give me more range. Seems like when I put it on it moves even slower than did before. Any body ever get more speed out of a f525 in reverse and if so how did you do it?

Hook your toe under the forward pedal & lift it!

Yeah I know but I got a longer pedal that should do the same thing but it doesn't just wondering if anybody has done it by replacing the original reverse pedal with an aftermarket made for that purpose

I have an F525 and have not had any problem yet.  Could it be a linkage wear problem or adjustment?

the speed in reverse is slow but, we have a f525 ran great, no trans issue, then the one time we went to back up, it would barely back up then it got to the point where it wouldnt hardly back up at all, you had to push it backwards, ended up finding out that the cable that controls your foot control, was warn out and would just shove the cable side ways, we ended up purchasing a used one for 50 or 60 bucks, a new one is around $120 i believe!

1964Deere:

 

I found some specifications from John Deere for the 525 that say the speed in reverse is 0 - 2.5 MPH, and forward is 0 - 5.0 MPH. Seems a little slow, my 318 Operator's Manual says reverse is 0 - 3.5 MPH and forward is 0 - 7.5 MPH.

Having problems getting the new push pull cable set. Does anyone know the preliminary settings and how each threaded adjustment will effect the hydrostat control
