kawakx125,

The control arms are built to be adjustable but usually will not be changed as it will affect the deck thru its whole range of motion. Making the arm length shorter will pull the deck back and up and will change the height of the cut slightly, and has the possibility of causing the deck to bottom out on the frame rails if shortened too much. Are you running the rear tires at stock pressures?

Best Regards,
Wright Mfg.

kawakx125,

Try running at 15psi, seems to be the sweet spot where you get the softer ride but less drop in the rear end of the mower due to the operators weight.

I'm completely out of adjustment and need more on the rear. I have plenty of adjustment left on the front end. I can either adjust the balljoints underneath deck or adjust the rods alongside the frame rails to get more adjustment. which would you recommend? would adjusting the top rails raise/lower the deck as a whole or just the front?

kawakx125,

The upper rods will only lift the front, adjusting the deck control arms to a shorter length will pull the deck back and up within the frame. How much more adjustment are you looking for?

Best Regards,

what would happen if I cut the 2 gussets out of the rear of the deck? are they there for structural reasons or ''baffling'' reasons?

kawakx125,

More baffle than structure, essentially cutting out the rear baffles will allow more mixing of the air flow between the chambers in the rear of the deck.

Best Regards,
Wright Mfg.
