    I have a Honda 21" HRX 217 mower and I'm trying to figure out the height adjustments in inches. There are 7 notches for the front and rear to lower or heighten the cut. Does anyone know what these notches amount too in inches?

    Also, should I cut with the same height in the front and rear or have a slight pitch with one being lower than the other?

    Your owners manual has a section in it that tells you your height by the notches. Mow at the same height, No pitch :usflag:

    Does mowing at different heights cause a problem?

    When you pitch the deck, you don't get an even cut. And its not a quality cut.

    I have HRX 217 for mowing my own front lawn. This is a very good mower,some of its features Honda should have incorporated on 2005 redesigned commercial hydro 21. This mower mulches par excellence.

    7 mowing heights -3/4 inch to 4 inch's.Basically 1/2 inch increments, with an oddball adjustment from height adjustment 2 to 3 of 3/4 inch.

    1-3/4
    2-1-1/4
    3-2.0
    4-2.5
    5-3.0
    6-3.5
    7-4.0

    Thanks for the information! It looks like I was mowing at 3" like I thought!
