 MF 1440v

I bought a MF 1440v with loader last fall and really like the unit. Purchased a bush hog rear discharge 72" finish mower last week and I have been trying it out a little (it is dry here) but I can't get the correct ground speed for mowing with this tractor. I have the 8x8 shuttle transmission and if I run in low range 4th gear it is traveling at 2.75 mph according to the chart in the book. If I run in high range 1st gear it is traveling at 5.56 mph. This is a difference of 2.8 mph between the two gears. The lower gear seems like you are just creeping along, and the higher gear shakes me and the mower really bad. I talked with the dealer today, and he agreed that there shouldn't be such a gap between gears, and he is talking to MF about it to see if anything can be done. Has anyone else noticed this problem?
