    I have a Scag 36 belt drive wb, the chart on it shows where I need to be to mow at 3", deck currently is in the middle bolt holes, I need to lower to the bottom holes, is there any thing I need to know such as supporting the deck or handle assembly or belt adjustments etc. before I unbolt to lower? Anyone have any experience?

    I just lowered on a 48" unit...went ok. I put a jack under the power head so it wouldn't fall down and wood block under the deck. I took all bolts out except one on each side. Then I took the final bolt out on one side and used a punch to line up holes for lowering. I then went to the other side and did the same. After getting one bolt in on each side then I worked the other two in using the punch.
