We have 2 of the 2500 E mowers . Great light weight greens mowers I find . The offset wheels and cutting units work great to help with triplex ring if your not walk mowing clean up cuts as we do here at The Links at Brunello .
Recently had a HOC adjuster spring not keeping tension on bed bar to reel adjustment . After asking around and getting some feed back from some of the techs on Twitter I measured my reels for wear . Using a seamstress measuring tape and divide by PI I was just over the minimum recommended spec for flipping bedknife pivot points .
You can also buy a PI tape but I'm showing options.
14.86 diveded by 3.14 = 4.73 . Recommend to flip at 4.8"
pretty easy process just remove here and clean up then flip them to other side .
Notch facing up on reel in mow position .
Recommend loosening grass shield and turn about 45 quarter turns on adjusters to get you close to new setting .
The operators manual states to drop front roller setting one notch but if your at 2 and #1 is not recommended in manual for HOC then stay at #2. I found out the hard way .
These next steps are for Higher HOC . Cutting at greens height at .1000 is NOT recommended to go to #1 setting
But if you have to it's also an easy process . Loosen pinch bolt and front roller mounting bolts .
Marks are on the side
You might need to give them a tap here
I'll also recommend at change over going with a new bedknife .
Bolts almost lined up at 45 quarter turns
Set up cut
I use a regular drill till get it close
Resquaring reel with front roller
HOC is really low . My only option was setting bedknife on bar a squaring front edges on it . Only one reel was a hair off
these are for squaring reels . Makes quick work of it .
I remove the bar for final adjustments . do each side independently .
Post the ugly . Yes I do mess things up once in a while . This is what happened after following instructions for bedknife bolt pivots . Reel to far into canopy before bedknife .
After corrections this is the QOC I was chasing for .
