Welcome to the forums.

Cutting height: 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5 in (Approx.)

According to the manual the tallest cutting height is 3.5".
Have you measured what yours is cutting at ?

Bent blade, low tires, disconnected deck linkage, something bent, bad spindle bearings, could be several things.

Have you made any changes to the mower like changing blades or tires?

Are mower deck wheels adjusted for selected cutting height?

Mower deck

yes the wheels are adjusted down. With pto engaged the blade is at about 4 inches yet it still cuts to short. I hate raking. CONFUSED

If blade height changes with between PTO on/off there is a problem with the mower deck, possibility blade spindles. With the mower on level ground, check each end of each blade on the mower deck for same height every 90 degrees in a single rotation of each blade and report findings.

How do you know you have the correct size tires on your mower?
