    mlmartin is right; tractors are just noisy (wish the manufacturers would come up with better mufflers). Of course, if you're satisfied with the performance of your mower at lower rpm (1700 seems really low), I guess there's nothing wrong with that, but you won't hurt the tractor to run it at the 540 PTO speed.

    The other guys are right on target about hearing protection. One hour of tractor use is equal to a full 8 hours of factory work @ 85dBs. Howard Leight makes a new head phone called the "Leightning" that reduces continuous dBs by 29dBs but allows shorter term sound (conversation)to penetrate.
