 Garden Tractor speeds up while Mowing

I have a Scotts S2546 with a 25 HP engine. As I was cutting the engine started to rev up to max RPM's. I can slow it down a little by using the throttle but it still is running very fast. Any suggestions? Thanks,

Are you operating the mower with the throttle in the FAST position before you experience an even higher RPM?

Dennis, Thank you for the reply. Yes, it was full throttle with blades running when it reved up to the higher RPM's.

Could be the governor kicking the throttle up to compensate for the engine slowing because of hitting a difficult section (thick grass, or too tall).

Or a slipping belt or clutch due to thick grass resulting in slippage and engine speed increase...
