Re: [RoboMower] Re: High Rider
- I wonder if the front wheel is adjusted to its greatest extension, if there would be room to fit a larger wheel over the front wheel, which might buy you an inch
on mine, the extension wheel eventually disconnects the assembly from the chassis, which can be done without removing the hood...I wonder if you could simply cut a wood block or something to push the entire assembly (the small wheel and electronics board that moves up and down when adjusting extension) further down vertically

It may possibly (and most easily) be accomplished by lengthening the shaft. You don't state which mower or whether you have actually opened it and seen inside.
I had a different "shaft problem" - see here, this might give you a hint as to how the shaft "works" on a RL1000:

The only thing I can figure out is to take the wheel to a machine shop and have them but the wheel shaft in two and weld a 2" piece of metal into the shaft. Any ideas?
