Adjusting the blades
If the paper test shows that you need to adjust your blades, you will need an 11 mm and 13 mm wrench. If issues exist on both sides of the mower, you’ll need to work on them one side at a time.
Using the 13mm wrench, unlock the two LOCKING BOLTS (3) on the side that needs adjusting. If the blades are touching, rotate the ADJUSTMENT DIAL (4) counterclockwise until the blades don’t make contact. If the blades are too far apart, turn the ADJUSTMENT DIAL (4) clockwise, just until the reel makes contact. Then turn the dial counterclockwise only slightly, to back the blades off the stationary blade.
Tighten the LOCKING BOLTS (3) and perform the paper test again to make sure your adjustment worked. If necessary, repeat this on the other side of the mower.
