Having problems with adjusting the pitch of the mower. It will only go from the center, neutral to the mower being pitched up. For some reason I can't get the mower to angle into cutting head pointing down.
Any ideas are appreciated!

"For some reason I can't get the mower to angle into cutting head pointing down.

Probably because generally it's NOT a good idea to point the guard points "down".

Also, the height of the drawbar as it's hitched to the tractor will have SOME effect on the angle of the cutterbar.

I am almost 78 and was a farmer all my working life. Had all different types of bar mowers and NEVER found any time you would want the guard to point down. The bar just will not cut if you try that. Each section ould cut each stem several mutiple times before you traveled far enought to get over the stalk and that would make all kinds of plugging problems. The guards are SUPPOSED to TILT UP to get away from those plugging problems. Cannot understand WHY you would want them pointing down.
