Mower height

Recommended Posts

Finally got my deck height adjusters unlocked and working. Problem is I forgot to measure the height before I took them off. Now that they are on and working, what hieght is a good place to start? I remember reading somewhere that factory hieght is 3 1/2"? Is this correct? This the height of the blades not the bottom of deck, right?

dlc: no rust remover from you know who as of yet! actually I am tired of waiting on "the old boy" so I went out and got a load of rust reformer as advised by another member. Started working on the snowblower and the stuff seems to do a great job. I would have never believed if I hadn't tried it myself. Anyway, thanks for the sandblast offer. I may take you up on it.

Brett, I always understood the cutting height to mean to the under side of the blade height. 3 1/2" is a good starting point to use. Try to get the leading underside of the blade 1/8" higher than the trailing,rear edge with blades facing front and rear.That adjustment is gotten from the clevises in the frt of deck. BTW dija get your shipment of rust remover from 'you know who' yet?If not bring er' on down I'll let you sandblast her[I'll be in the pool if you need me!] The only really good way to be rid of rust/scale![is to let SOMEONE ELSE do it!] dlc

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
