SOURCE: craftsman 42" riding lawn mower blade free spinning but wont cut

It sounds to me that you need a new mower deck drive belt, or your blades need sharpening. If the blade edges are rounded, they won't cut butter... Also, when mower is off, check mower deck drive pulleys to make sure you don't have any that are locked up or are dragging. You can check this by pulling the belt away from pulley and spinning the pulley by hand. MOWER MUST BE OFF before attempting any of these checks. You would be surprised how many people would try this with the mower running.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Craftsman 42 inch riding lawn mower is not cutting evenly

The first thing to check is your blades. If one is bent, it will never cut even. It happens a lot hitting roots, antbeds, etc. Mulching blades will bend easier than a straight blade. It's best to take them off and lay one on top of the other to see if they're bent.

SOURCE: craftsman riding lawn mower won t cut grass

Does it die when you attempt to engage the cutting deck? If so the you might have a clogged fuel filter, bad gas, dirty air filter, bad spark plug.
Or the mower engage switch may be faulty. They are located in different places on different mowers. But should be attached somewhere along the main pivot of the engage lever. Let me know if you need more assistance. Good Luck!!

How to lower lawn mower


Cindy, if it's already at the lowest setting, you kinda / sorta answered your own question, i.e. it can't be adjusted any lower; but, as you may be aware, there is an adjuster at every wheel, and by putting all wheels at the same - lower - level, you will get a lower, mowing height; and if you've already done that, or there are no 'individual adjusters', they wheels are typically bolted to the frame and there are usually several holes to bolt the wheel to - simply un-bolt and re-bolt to achieve the lowest, preferred height.

Why does the front roller keep dropping, resulting in lawn scalpage?


Is the adjuster broken or wore out so it won't hold where it is suppose too be. Some times you just need to tighten the bolts that holds them on. You may have to replace the adjuster as well.

I have a Honda HRX217 versamower and I would like to know where the wheels should be for the highest height for my lawn, or should I buy a riding lawn mower to get more height. My lawn is dying with


Move the 4 wheel adjustment levers to the number 4 position which is all the way forward (towards you if facing the front of the mower) and that is the highest setting which is about 4" cut height. Each number for the lever position represents the inches in cut. In between numbers is 1/2" so in between 2 and 3 would be 2 1/2" cut as an example.

Front wheels on manual mower lock when pushing for awhile.


1 Locate the height adjustment lever on the inside of the left rear wheel.
2 Kneel next to the mower and push the left height adjustment lever toward the center of the mower. This will unlock the lever from the locking pin on which the height is currently set.

3Rotate the lever toward the front of the mower to lower the height of cut, or toward the rear of the mower to raise the height of cut.

4 Release the lever over the locking pin closest to the desired height of cut.

5 Repeat these steps with the adjustment lever on the right-side rear wheel. Be sure to set the right wheel lever to the same position as the left-side wheel's lever for an even cut.

Black and decker 18 inch flip over handle electric lawn mower cat #8019 don't know how to adjust height it is cutting way too low


There is no height lever on this simple mower. To change the height of cut, the wheels themselves must be moved up or down. First, unplug the mower. Turn it over on its side. You'll see that the wheels attach to the frame with simple bolts, and that there are two open holes at each wheel (three holes at different heights altogether, but one of the holes is occupied by the current mounting height of the wheels). Undo each bolt for all four wheels and move them to a new position. Note that the wheel-mounting holes are drilled 5/8-inch apart from each other. If you want to add another hole there is room on the sheet metal to make a new hole for each wheel, and this would put the mower body and blade very high off the ground, if used. You can make that new hole for each wheel with your electric drill. But I think your mower is probably set to the lowest of the three holes, so see first if moving the wheels 5/8-inch higher is better for your lawn, and, if not, then use the 1 1/4-inch higher set of holes on all four wheels. Make sure to move each wheel to the same height hole! Good luck, be safe. --Joe, Tucson, AZ

To mulch my grass clippings, do I have to use the side discharge or can I simply remove the bag and insert the rear plug?


Insert the rear plug if mulching is desired. The key to mulching is to mow the lawn frequently.You want to keep the mower deck height high enough to cut the grass and allow the mulching blades to work, but just low enough to actually cut the grass in a smooth uniform height. To low of a cut setting will clog the mower and create a mess. 2 times a week is a good frequency to start with.
