    When changing the front caster spacers, only a few seconds. If you need to change the rear axle position, it requires tools, a jack, and about 10-15 minutes.

    Changing the spacers on the front casters takes only a few seconds. Wiping the grease off your hands after the change takes longer.

    My mower is a 36" Viking, and changing those caster spacers is the most frustrating part of operating the machine. I know it is a simple, low cost way of changing heights, and it is used widely on fixed decks. But, it is always a greasy job. I grease the caster spindle one shot, once per week, just enough to keep a little grease on the shaft. typically, I change heights 4-5 times per day.
