No,You need to park on a level area and lower the deck to it's lowest setting and adjust the deck with the large butterfly nuts on each side,just under the foot pan,just loosen and let the adjusters fall into place,Tighten back up and it should be set.You may need to do this more than once.

The straight blade for the 42 inch mower is 138971.They cut better and are easier to sharpen and you will need them if you use a gass catcher. If you do not want to use sears for parts you may be able to find good deals on ebay.

Sears Tractor Mower 42" is cut cutting lawn in two uneven strips


First, check the blade, it may be bent. If not, there is an adjustment nut (9/16) on each side in the middle of the deck hanger bracket. Get on level surface and screw each up or down to get blade tips the same height on each side.
