What have you all done to mow higher than 3"? Suggestions are greatly appreciated. I see where a member replaced his rollers and contemplated extending their attachment brackets.
The 48" deck is from a late 90's Sovereign model 1693418
Thanks for the replies!
Rear tires have no effect on the deck, larger front tires would raise the front of the deck, but not the back.
On my Sovereign, when I raise the deck to it's maximum heught of 3-1/8", the belts barely clear everthing. Model 886 48" deck on 74 3416h Sovereign, different idlers, but I would raise your deck all the way and take a close look before changing anything.
Larger tires and longer arms holding the roller bar could increase height, but you would get a corresponding change in the minimum cutting height as well, plus the front tires tend to rub on the drag link as it is.
My recomendation would be a tow behind finishing mower or a rear mount brush hog. (Assuming price is no object!!!)
