    Gen 2 2032R & 2038R Actual Blade Height vs Deck Height Setting

    Has anyone with the new 2017 and newer Gen 2 2032R or 2038R taken the time to measure your deck blade height at the various Command Cut deck height settings? CommandCut™ Height of Cut - YouTube
    I am going to take these measurements tonight I hope and post them here so we can all compare to each others' machines. Not sure if deck size matters for this purpose, but just in case, I think we should classify by deck size... 60" and 72". Thanks for your feedback.

    Sincerely

    I was just thinking about this since my dealer failed on other aspects of setup. I will check when I get my machine back.

    I'll be interested in your findings. One would hope that the expensive computer controlled deck height control system that JD uses would reflect the blade height (aka cut height). :-)

    I'll go ahead and predict that there will be a difference btwn everyones measurements. Just from human error, the large adjustment range of the mounts that hold the deck to the tractor, tire types etc.. Still curious

    I took measurements on my gen 2 2025 60D the day I got it and it’s about 1/8” below what the knob reads. I’ve yet to actually mow grass with it though. Hopefully tomorrow!

    0 .75”
    1 1.5”
    1.5 1.75”
    2. 2”
    2.5 2.5”
    3 3”
    3.5 3.5”

    That's actually allot better than I thought. I'll have to measure mine when I get a chance. My linear actuator has been replaced because I ripped it off driving into my shop before I had my concrete apron poured so I'm curious to see the results

    But your G2 2025R doesn't have Command Cut. I think the OP was interested in what other Command Cut users were seeing.
