737/757 Height Of Cut Setting

    On my 737 the Height Of Cut Knob Arrow does not line up with the Inch Increments, is there any accuracy with this system?

    With your 7 Iron Deck above a level concrete surface, how many inches from floor to deck bottom will give you a 3 inch cut?

    TIA...Joe :dizzy:

    Most ZTR's height of cut accuracy changes over time with wear. Mine is 1/4" off.

    Measure from floor to blade.

    Both of my 757's are off about a 1/4". You can adjust it and make it accurate but its not really worth the effort. The owners manual tells how its done. Get yourself one of those JD gauges that measure blade height.

    Set your tire pressure first, then set your deck rake, then your blade height.
