    I found out years ago that I can adjust the wheel hights by holding the handel bar and useing my foot to do the hight adjustments rather than bending over and useing my hand. It a heck of a lot easer! Thought Id share that.

    Make sure the blade isn't turning. I try to set the height before taking the toro's off of the trailer. This way they're closer to me. I'm lazy.

    I set the front one notch higher than the back. stresses the engine less on heavy growth that way. better bagging too.

    Set the rear handle bars to your height. Low for shorter folks and high for taller folks. Basic info, but worth setting up right.

    But put oil in before it runs out.

    or you'll be sry burning up a $700 mower.... friend of mine was cutting his own personal grass w/his dad's craftsmen ($4k lawn tractor, accordingly to him) w/o changing the oil.... blew it up..... says it cost as much to fix it up then buy a similar mower, i think he said about $2k to repair.....

    simple mistake could have been prevented...... :rolleyes:
