LEVELING THE MOWER (Figures 4 and 5)
With the tractor and mower on a level surface rotate the three blades so that the blade tips are pointed toward the front of the mower. Measure the distance from the front tip of the center blade to the ground. Then measure the height of the rear tips of side blades. The front tip of center blade should be 1/8 to 1/4 inch higher than rear tip of side blades. The rear tips of right hand and left hand side blades should be the same distance above ground.
To adjust, turn the adjusting yokes on the rear end of level adjusting rods. Turn the yoke on both rods to obtain the 1/8 to 1/4 inch difference in height from front tip to back tip. Turn only one yoke to obtain same height of the side blades for side ways leveling.
Cutting height from 1-1/4 inches to 3-3/4 inches can be selected by adjusting the height control lever up or down. To adjust, move lever sideways to release from notch and move lever to desired height.
A cutting height of approximately 2 inches is average and normal. The lower settings should be used only for smooth lawns where short grass is desired. The higher settings are for rougher areas or for very high grass.
