SOURCE: The highest deck setting cuts my grass down to one inch.

leveling bolts hang from each side deck by frame...tightened up and level...will give you some more room....be sure the blades are not bent.

SOURCE: How do you adjust the cutting deck?

Pete, go back to partstree and look at the diagram for lift arms. Item #27 is your lift cables. You will notice there are several little ferrules or balls on the cables, you unhook the cable and slide these up or down as needed to adjust your deck. If you need the deck higher, you would position more of the balls under the lift arm on each side. If you can't get the desired height then your cables are stretched and need to be replaced

On the right side of your mower you should find a lever that allows you to adjust the cutting height of the deck up and down.

I hope this helps, if that is not sufficient just reply for some clarification and I will answer you question further.

Mower deck adjustment


you may have bent brackets in the front. These are the pieces that straddle front and back of the front axle beam. This happens when you hit things sticking up or on the side with the deck.
You also could have bent deck link bars (where you make height adjustment on the front).

Low under the steering wheel there may be an adjusting knob. If it is there are you turn it, it should adjust the height of the deck. If you lower the deck and try to turn the knob it will be difficult to turn and you will know that is what it is for, the deck lower stop. Then pull up the deck and adjust a bit and lower the deck and see where it is, repeat until satisfied with the deck height when lowered.

Hi, are you saying that you want it taller than the highest blade setting? Meaning the highest notch on the blade height setting lever?

Mowing the lawn high and low


Mowing the lawn low and hi can only mean where are the adjusters or which is best.
The best height for grass is about 2 - inches for my nickle. There is no best - it is to your taste.
As for adjustments on your unit they are done with the handle that sets your deck height.
Let me know if after reading the instructions you still need help.

thanks

Hower do you do the adjusting for height on the


The dial only sets the height or the total deck, it is more of a stop than an adjuster.

If it seems too low in the front, you can adjust it by tightening the nuts on the 2 bolts/pins that are attached to the deck and the frame.

First of all, though, check your tire pressures, 10 psi in the rear and 14 psi in the front. If front pressures are too low, this will make a huge difference in your cut. You want to adjust the bolts an equal amount to maintain your side to side level keeping in mind that it should have 1/4 to 1/2 " difference front to rear.

Make your adjustments on your driveway or garage floor so you have a flat level surface to go by.

If you make these adjustments and it still scalps, you will either have to set the deck to cut a bit higher or approach the high spots from a different angle or remember to lift the deck up a bit with the handle when you get to those areas

Hope this solves your problem

Even on the highest setting, it still cuts too low. can i adjust it to cut higher?


When you put it in the highest setting can you see the deck actually moving in an upward direction? If not the linkage might be broken or damaged. When you raise the deck up or down with the lever it should move, a deck setting in the full up position is a pretty high setting you have to have some long grass to be cutting in the full up position and still think its to short. You might be able to reposition the deck, if when you look under the unit you see a bracket that controls the deck height setting that has a number of holes in it(maybe even 2 brackets), there should be a pin(s) in one of the holes this could be set in a low position and therefore you can change position to change height of deck.

Is this the first time cutting grass with a lawn tractor?
How tall of grass?
Use the grass cutting heigth adjustments on the tractor to a higher setting when cutting tall grass. Cut again to a lower height setting on the second pass. Grass higher than your tractor is not good for your tractor. Follow the manual instructions for best results.
