Possibly. Check the manual that came with the mower. Use the chart in there when adjusting blade heights for the best results.

It will change somewhat. It is a Metro and not a Metro HP, right? If you change the caster wheel height it will also change the deck a little if you have it too high in the front you will be blowing grass out of the sides. Check the owners manual I'm sure its in there,(how to raise and lower the blades)Remember you have to replace spacers just don't leave them out. Example, however many spacers you take off the bottom you need to move them to the top of the spindles.

Check the link below. Pages 34-40 talks about adjusting deck height and show the charts that I was referring to. If this isn't the manual for your serial number, just go to the service/support section of the Exmark website.

Mo I don't know if this guy wants to raise the deck or just the blades ;)
If its the deck he wants to raise , good luck with a fixed deck! Also if you raise the blades too high on an Exmark it looses its vaccuum effect. I thought last year raising my blades on my Exmark Viking would make less of a mess, WRONG, I asked an Exmark rep at a seminar and he told me to lower the blades so there would be more vac. guess what it worked!

Raising the deck in accordance to their specs is the best way to do it. Just raising or lowering blades will lower the cut quality.

So you don't care about the cut quality? If you have a blade height of 3" sitting on flat ground, then your cutting height is 3".

I told you, read the manual. It tells you how to raise and lower the deck. I did the research and found the manual for you. All you have to do is read it.

Adam, when you have a FIXED deck the only way to raise the blades is to adjust each spindle with washers, I think each washer equals (when moved from bottom to top) a half inch. So if you want to lower the blades then take a washer from each spindle and put it on the top of each spindle. There is no easy way with a fixed deck.
