I am getting ready for my first run mowing the yards.  I have re-read the manual and found some confusion about mower height.

The mower single adjuster lever has numbered slots for height.  It does not indicate the actual height.  There is no table in the manual.

The following settings are what I measured with my mower.

  1. 1.5 inches
  2. 2.0 inches
  3. 2.5 inches
  4. 3.0 inches
  5. 3.5 inches
  6. 4.0 inches
  7. 4.5 inches

There is a caution in the manual to remove Start Key and battery packs before adjusting the height.

In general I feel that a bit more caution is needed around this type of mower as it is simpler to start!

Removing the Start Key and hanging it up in a safe place seems to be a good idea.  I also am thinking about purchasing a spare start key as a backup.
