I bought a brand new 48 Wright walk behind, and I can't get the blades lower than 3". Even with 5 spacers between the blade and deck....any suggestions?

Do your wheel motors adjust? On my Viking the wheel motors, blades and casters adjust... I think my wheel motors have 4 or 5 differnt settings...I got mine set where all I do for different jobs is adjust the casters... between 3in to 4in... Luckily I have no lawns the require me to mow lower than 3 in... If so I would have to lower the blades....

6.6 Blade Adjustments and Height-of-Cut
Before Adjusting the Height-of-Cut be sure of proper air pressure in all four tires and check for even
tire wear. The height-of-cut can be adjusted the following ways:
•Coarse Adjustment: For the coarse adjustment the rear wheels, the front casters should be adjusted
at the same time.
The rear wheels adjust by pivoting the rear axle, See Parts List, by the upper support bolt. It will be
necessary to jack up the rear of the mower and place it on blocks. The rear wheels do not need to be
removed. Make certain there is no weight on the rear axle before loosening any hardware. Loosen
the upper pivot bolts slightly. Allow all threads to remain engaged on the nut. Remove the bolts on
the lower portion of the rear axle weldment. The bolts are accessible from the inside of the tractor
body. Align the rear axle with one of the five adjustment holes in the tractor body. Each adjustment
setting changes the mower height by 0.75”.
a.Use the highest hole in tractor frame for cutting heights of 1.75”-3.0”.
b.Use the second highest hole in tractor frame for cutting heights of 2.5”-3.75”, factory setting.
c.Use the middle hold in the tractor frame for cutting heights of 3.25”-4.5”.
d.Use the lowest two holes in tractor frame for cutting heights of 4.0”-5.75”.
Adjust the front caster arms at their respective support brackets equally in one of the seven settings
up or down 0.25” each through a 1.5” total range.
