... come and arrest me if the front wheels on my self propelled lawnmower are higher than the back wheels? On the front yard it's become a push mower - I physically can't handle that for longer than 10 minutes at a time in this heat. I've been way too good at taking care of my lawn (centipede & st. augustine) and it grows so thick and fast, especially in the front yard that my self propelled lawnmower is bogged down. The only way around this would be to cut the lawn every 4 days. I've got the wheels set at the 2nd slot to the lowest. I'm thinking if I raise the wheels in the front it won't bog down as badly. Anyone see a problem with this?
