    Anyone have to change the height of cut by messing with the wheel moter locations ????? I just got this machine and its' high.... The blades are set as low as they can go with spacers and they are at 3 a 1/4.. alittle too high, especially for fall when I drop to 2.5"...... You cant move the deck like you can on a walk behind, the manual says to change the position of the wheel motors or axles ?? anyone done this and whats the best procedure to do it ????? Thanks

    Moving the rear wheel monuts is a major job......in my opinion something for the dealer to do.......

    I believe mine are in the middle holes...

    I was looking at the adjustment slot s on the wheel motors and noticed that the motors are in the center holes which does not correspont with the heights that the manual states ??? I am wondering if there is something else that may not be set up right ??? Also I noticed that the motors can be moved back like a half inch in another set of holes on the frame ?? Would this cause any bad problems ?? I am thinking it will make it a little more stable when backing up ?? by lenthing the wheel base a bit ???? The adjustment does not look all too difficult, just pull the bolts out and reposition it , put bolts back in ??? or am I missing something ???

    I really don't know how hard it would be. But since I paid $6400. for mine....I thought the least the vender could do is set it up the way I like it.....

    I am still getting use to mine but I am quickly growing to love it.....

    I called Wright and spoke with a tech... Moving the wheel motors back to the end holes just lenthens the wheelbase for a bit more stability going forward and reverse....
    Height issue.... the settings it came from the factory with mathced what they showed and what the manual showed however the heights did not match theirs, only the holes ??? So I tore the thing apart... Moved the wheel motors to the highest holes in the frame which allowed it to drop 3/4" and made similar adjustments to the front castors, then removed a spacer from the castor to make the deck level, then I was able to remove 2 blade bolt spacers and now I am at 3" cutting height. And all that only took me 2 hours of bolting and measuring to get it just right. Ughhh.......
