    I saw on an old post someone mentioned having your mower's wheels at different heights. They didn't elaborate at all, so will someone please explain this, b/c I have never heard of it before.

    Thanks

    it is about the pitch of your deck
    a slight angle down in the front makes for a better, cleaner cut. but we are talking 1/8 inch not a whole peg drop in your deck.

    idea is that you are cutting with the front of the blade and not dragging the back end so you get better spin/ blade speed and less clumping
