cutting height adjustment too low on Honda any help?

david_efamJuly 29, 2009

I purchased my first Honda HRR after researching many mowers...I am completely happy except for the fact that I have the cutting height set to the highest and my grass is needing to be just another 1/2" to 1" longer. Any modifications or advice?

There's nothing you can reasonably do about it. Cutting height is one of the primary considerations in a mower purchase. I see the HRR only goes to 3 1/4" - this would be a deal-killer for me. Most premium mowers today go to 4" or higher.

Bigger diameter wheels are the only way I could think of to raise the cutting height. Finding wheels to fit will be difficult and cut quality may suffer. The only other choice is Craigs List and start over.

HRR2165VKA/PDA cut height 3/4" - 3.25", wheels 8".
HRR2165VXA cut height 3/4" - 4", wheels 9".
Ask your dealer, you may get lucky and the VXA wheels may fit your HRR????
