    I feel that my deck is a little to high from the factory. I mow on #1 & its not low enough. Has anyone lowered it? Is it hard to do? Thanks Todd.

    You can adjust the front with the top-link-like arms on the front and via the turnbuckles on the rear chains. It's a piece of cake. :weightlifter:

    When the blades are put in line with the axis of the mower (front to back), you should have 3" between the ground and the front blade tip when the deck indicator is on 3. The rear tip should be a little higher (1/8" to 1/4").
    Of course, the indicator is just that on any other settings...
    Make sure your are on a flat hard floor when setting your deck.
