Hello I just purchased an X350 and I love it. I did have one question. I like to cut my grass at around 4 inches and that is what I had been doing with my push mower prior to this purchase. When researching the X350 I saw that the dial for the mower height indicated 4 inches. After my first cut it seemed to be shorter than the length I have been cutting with my push mower. So I parked the X350 in my level shed and measure from the sharp edge of the blade to the shed floor with the dial set on 4. It measured 3 inches. Even in the locked travel position the blade did not measure 4 inches to the shed floor. Is this something that can be adjusted? Should I contact the dealer?

Thanks in advance for any responses.

Go over procedure for leveling your deck, make sure its set correctly
I agree. I'd be curious to know if when the deck is set to the leveling height if the included "chess piece" leveling gauge fits under the designated spots on the deck.

According to Deere.. The numbers on the dial are not related to cutting height in inches. Now.. that being said.. we set the dial to 3 when leveling a deck. The tire pressures are set to.. 14psi front, 10psi rear. Level deck side to side at 3 inches at the tip of the cutting edge. Measure front to rear of blade with 1/4 inch lower in front. Check and recheck. Topped out on the upper stop should give you 4 inches.. maybe 4 1/4.

Mine was almost exactly the same as the picture you posted with the deck half to three quarters lower than the plastic gauge.

I figured my dealer either didn't level it correctly or they leveled it with the 30+ psi of air that was in the tires when they dropped it off. Which I suppose is them not leveling or setting up the tractor correctly. Either way getting that extra inch off ground clearance in the travel position was a nice benefit of leveling the deck correctly.
