    Hello, We just purchased a older (Early 90's) 52 " Scag Hydro W/B and are trying to figure out the adjustment of the blade height. The deck in the back is at the highest position and so are the front wheels. We also have the spacers adjusted up on the blades themselves and it is still too low. The only other thing I can think of is the size of the rear tires are too small?, the are 16 "....I can't find what the stock size is but wondering if anybody has a similar one? Thanks,

    What is too low. I have a scag 36 WB. With the deck in the top holes and the casters at their highest setting and 4 blade spacers between the the deck and the blade it cuts at about 3 1/2 inches. You can go to the scag web site and down load the owners manual, for more info.

    vet, Are you sure your not in the lowest hole in the back?

    What EMJ says is correct as far as height goes. How high do you want to cut?

    SCAG's cut crappy at much above 3.25"
