The mower has a 6-setting height adjustment between 1.5 inches to 4 inches. The BLACK+DECKER® BEMW213 13 Amp 20″ Corded Electric Mower features a 20″ deck and 13 Amp motor for the power to tackle overgrowth.
The top setting for most mowers gives a cutting height between 3.25 and 4 inches. This is best for your lawn, but at a setting of 4 inches you may sometimes see some “laying-over” of turf blades that some people find undesirable. For this reason, some people prefer to mow at 3 or 3.5 inches.
Always Mow at 3 Inches or Taller

Often the highest setting on most mower types is 3 inches. Mowing the grass at 3 inches or taller will prevent diseases, promote deep digging roots, help the grass conserve water, improve turf density, and improve turf color.

The simple act of raising one`s lawnmower can reduce water consumption as well as pesticide and fertilizer use. Because raising the height of one`s lawnmower creates healthier lawns, grass will require less watering and fertilization and it will fight off weeds naturally, reducing the need for pesticides.
Many modern push mowers (and even some reel mowers) can make height adjustments just by moving a lever. Some types of mower may require adjustment of each wheel one at a time. If you have this kind of mower, ensure that you don`t inadvertently adjust each to a different height.
For a typical residential Midwest lawn, maintain a height of 3 inches or higher. Taller grass shades out weed seeds and keeps soil cooler. Taller grass means longer roots and greater ability to withstand drought and reach nutrients.

Measure the distance from the blade to the bottom of the deck. Add the gap from the ground to the bottom of the deck to the distance from the blade to the bottom of the deck you have the height of cut.

Lawn mower won t start – Black & Decker Black and Decker Mm575 18" Mulching Lawn Hog Electric Lawn Mower
ANSWER : I too had problems starting and running my MM575 mower. I found the switch lever would only work when held at a angle. I opened up the switch cover and found the plastic pivot pin for the switch lever was worn causing the lever to be too loose. I cut the pivot pin and drilled it out and replaced it a 10-32 screw with nut. Now it works like it is supposed too!
