The Husqvarna name is commonly associated with outdoor, lawn and garden equipment. Husqvarna chainsaws, for example, have been used for many years by professionals in the forestry and timber industries. However, the Husqvarna line of products also extends to trimmers and mowers for use by home owners and professionals alike. Husqvarna mower controls are conveniently located to make adjustments, such as deck height selection, easy to do.

Sit on the Husqvarna mower and locate the deck height adjustment on the right side of the mower.

Step 4

Press the release button on the adjustment handle. Move the handle forward or back based on the desired cutting height.


Step 5

Release the button to lock the deck cutting height in place.

Step 6

Mow a strip of grass in the lawn. Stop and inspect the cut grass and make additional adjustments to the cutting height if necessary.
