Some PDF files are very large and cause issues with older printers that don't have much memory. You may want to try to switch to a Post Script driver to help the speed issue. Also increasing the memory in the printer may help.

With PCL drivers, the printer handles much of the processing. With PS drivers the print server handles the processing. With slower, older printers it makes sense to use PS drivers so that they don't have to do as much work.
