    Hello,
    I need some help on choosing a walkbehind mower for areas my 60" lazer doesn't fit and a couple of small yards. I will be using this mower only a few hours a week. My chooses are 48" metro used only about 30 hrs. 48" metro hp brand new or demo. 52" turf tracer hp used 2 seasons. My question is would I be happy with a 48 metro fixed deck. If i set the deck at 3" and wanted to adjust the height up to 1/2" on the job could I just adjust the spacers on the front caters or do I have to adjust the spacer on the blades?

    Cat1,

    You can however with the axle in the "C" or "D" position. What you'll probably find is that in dry conditions the "D" setting would be a bit less dusty however.

    Personally I like the floating decks if I'm going to be changing cutting heights.

    Thanks,

    Terry
