View Full Version : Howard Price 48' walk behind question

How do I adjust the deck height?

The guy I got the mower from told me that you just take the pins out of the front wheels and adjust using the spacers but if I raise it anymore then it won't be level.

Any ideas?

Check and see how the deck assy. is bolted to the engine deck assy. Sometimes there are several holes at that point so, as you raise the front adjustment with shims, you can move the rear of the deck up into higher holes.
Not all walkbehinds are like this. Many of them just have the front shim adj. method. If you can not move to different holes, then you just have to live with the deck being higher in the front.

It looks like your right.

The issue is it doesn't look like I can adjust it any higher without the front being higher than the rear of the deck. Will it still cut fine with the front higher? Would posting a picture help to see if anyone else has any ideas?

I have a few properties especially in the summer that like their lawn cut 3 1/2 inches or so and I know its much lower than that now.

I use to run an old Kees that was adjusted this way. I hated it.

It sounds like its going to be a pain but I'll get used to it.

I KNOW it has to adjust higher than 2 1/2 lol.
