    Default as far as - do not understand

    Push it right down, as far as it will go.

    Could you please tell me the meaning of the sentence above, especially the last part?

    What does it mean by "go"?

    Thank you very much indeed, grateful to you & appreciate your help.

    Push it until it will not go any further.

    As far as = as much distance as
    it will go = it is capable of moving
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
