Hi everyone,
I currently mow with an Exmark Turf Tracer and to be honest i'm not exactly sure what height is optimal for my properties. My question: What height setting should I mow at (what hole should i put the pin).:confused: Thanks!

3" fourth hole down -- 1/2" move for each hole.

If you look in your manual, it has the reorder part # for the deck sticker that outlines it.

try 1-553049

Great! Thank you so much! I had it on the fourth down, but was a little parenoid that it wasn't optimal.

It depends on the turf dude.

All my properties are mowed at either at the 3rd or 4th pin sticking up.

Last year one property I mowed on 2, and another on 5.

Howdy neighbor,

Yeah, we too run a eXmark TT. This season we're mulching and cutting 3 1/4" (5th hole). Last year we discharged all season at 3", with a power chute. Don't think there is any hard and fast rule about the setup, experiment and go with what looks best. Good luck.

Thanks for the info! I really appreciate it.

You are cutting pretty much the same grass types that I am....I would suggest cutting at around 3"....can't say for sure what hole that would be...but you should be able to figure it out.

my tthp cuts best at 8.5psi in the tires as well as the deck pitch down 1/4 inch in the front.

Exmark Guy an others,

I purchased a couple sets of thick washers. A few yards are on the 5th hole, a few are on the fourth hole. Most are cut on the fourth hole with a washer under the pin (4 1/2). This is helpful for me because 4th looks scalped, The 5th looks barely cut. Four and a washer is just right.

Measure it yourself and you'll always know which hole is which height
