    Can anyone tell me how you adjust the cut height on a metro 48? How long does it take to do it ?

    Thanks for the post and welcome to Lawnsite. The cutting height for the Metro is adjusted with front caster spacers, blade spacers and a rear axle adjustment.

    The rear axle adjustment is one that you probably won't do very often. My machine is 9 years old and it's been adjusted up once and then back down as soon as I was done cleaning up an overgrown lot.

    Most operators will operate the mower in a cutting height range that they can accommodate with the front caster spacers and the blade spacers.

    To change the caster spacers it really only takes a few seconds. This is where 99% of the field adjustments will be applied.

    The blade spacers require removing the blade and the blade bolt and relocating the spacers, which are really thick washers. This takes a good 15 minutes or so with hand tools.

    If you want a really detailed look at all the adjustments you can download a Metro operators manual from the tech support section of our web page.

    You can also give me a call here at the factory at 1-800-667-5296 at your convenience as well.
