Pull the height adjustment lever outward towards wheel (unit will tend to
fall when lever is moved outward). See Figure 13.

IMPORTANT: All wheels must be placed in the same position. For rough or uneven
lawns, move each height adjustment lever to a higher position. This will prevent you
from cutting the grass too close to the ground.
Handle Pitch (If Equipped)
For convenience of operation, you may adjust the pitch of the handle. Perform one
of the following:
Handles with Knobs and Carage Bolts. See Figure 14 -
Remove wing nuts and carriage bolts from handle.
Position the handle in one of the three positions that is most
comfortable. See Figure 14 inset.
Secure into position with wing nuts and carriage bolts removed in
EZ-Fold Handles. See Figure 15 -
Place the release levers in the unlocked positions.
Move the upper handle to align the position indicator with the most
comfortable of the three handle positions.
Place the release levers in the locked positions.
Drive Control (If Equipped)
The adjustment wheel is located in the drive control handle housing and is used
to tighten or loosen the drive belt. You will need to adjust the drive control if the
mower does not propel itself with the drive control engaged or if the mower's
wheels hesitate with the drive control engaged. If either of these conditions occur,
rotate adjustment wheel clockwise to tighten cable or counterclockwise to loosen
the cable. See Figure 16 or Figure 17.
