adjUST TINe HeIGHT
The tine height is pre-adjusted for average lawn and
may not need to be changed. Changes can be made to
tine height if working conditions require it. Only make
adjustments to tine height when Power Rake is turned
off and unplugged from a power source. There are 5
positions for the tines (.7", .9", 1.1", 1.4" and 1.7"). Pull
adjustment arm out from engagement hole, move it and
then let it re-engage in the desired height position. Make
adjustments by 1-step increments only and alternate
between left and right sides when making adjustments.
Adjustment arms must always be same height position
when using the machine.
