    Josh, I have three spacers under the blades on my metro and I believe it's a 3" cut. I gauge that by measuring from the driveway, but that doesn't account for turf depth. On the other hand, turfs are not all created equal, so I go with the height off a hard surface.

    As for the pitch, I left the wheels in front and in back on the setting it came with. I figure my mowing will almost all be between 2" and 3", so no need to mess with the wheels.
