A PDF file printed on a dot matrix printer is printed as if it was an image. Try it; print any image on the same printer - it will be as slow as PDF file.

Workaround? Don't print it as a PDF file! If you can, print it in character mode. As far as I know, it is the only way to get the result printed relatively fast (on a dot matrix printer).
