I wouldn't recommend it because the deck can't handle the extra 2 inches without hitting against the deck.

Question

How detailed is the mannual with this product?

I'm buying a property with 4 foot high grass. So...I wonder how this mower will do. I also want to know about buying spare belts, filters and oil so as to stay ahead of the game...I didn't see anyone comment on the relative long-term realibility on the Murry product line.

I have a 40" I purchased in 2010. I really have enjoyed this product without any problems until this week. I changed the drive belt and checked it multiple time to ensure it is on correctly (it is). Now when I release the break/cluch peddle it stops running immediately. I ajusted the cluch and break according to owners manual but still can not find the problem. I would, however, buy another one.
I also bought a very large Brute tractor from Walmart in 2011. one day after the 2 year warrenty expired, so did the tractor--a pully flew off during mowing. Replaced it and then in three weeks the engin (B&T Intech) push rod broke. Got it repaired and now 5 months later it died again and has to go to the shop. Push rod and valve problems. Walmart did not have an owner's manual for this last one and would not assist in getting me one.

No, the lawnmower will not mow in reverse because of the safety features installed on it.

No. Although, I have seen reviews stating that you can disconnect a wire to the gearshift to enable reverse mowing. I don't plan to do it because there are children around that could unwittingly be behind me.
