Lawnmower cutting height

Hi, My old 14.5 craftsman lawnmower from 2000 goes to a #6 cutting height and I had to use that height for my lawn. I noticed some of these new ones with bigger engines only go up to a #5 height, so wondering if the height on these newer ones ie 5 height is the same as 5 height way back or could it be possible that it goes higher on these newer models. Makes a difference on how much I have to pay for a new lawnmower and it does not state, nor could service help me when I called. Thank you.
Asked by: Catangels
Hello Catangels, Since Craftsman riders are built by different manufacturers, We cannot say if the 5th position on the 60411 is the same as your previous rider. Thank you shopping at Sears. Have a great day!
