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: 42" deck not cutting level

I had a similar problem, and the problem was fixed by airing up one of my front tires. This may not be all of the problem, but you should eliminate this before you go adjusting.......
Just a thought, --W/D--

SOURCE: 2003 DLT3000 Craftsman riding mower. Air in tires

when you put the new blades on did you notice if they were even with each other? the 42" decks have a tendency to "warp" inward on the left side. this causes the left blade to ride at an angle to the right blade - there is a tool to correct this, but not all shops have it - sometimes you can remove the deck, flip it over and wallop the inside edge of the left mandrel until the blades are even - a 2 lb. sledge works well for this

I have a John Deere LX178 lawn tractor and the mower deck will not raise/lower. It is all the way down and pushing in the button is how i've ALWAYS adjusted the height. It will not budge


1) NEVER adjust to where the deck wheels touch the ground. The wheels are to ride 1/4" off the ground. 2) The long lever to your left which raises & lowers the deck has 3 settings. 1- Fully back toward you which has the deck raised (called transport mode). 2- Halfway down which is the normal mowing mode (called float mode) 3- Fully away from you which sets the deck fully on the ground. This mode is ONLY used for VERY rough terrain where the deck risks getting pushed into "transport" or "full up" mode & getting stuck there. 3) On front-to-back tilt, the front should be 1/2inch lower than the back for least damage to the grass. Ok-now to adjust "cutting" height. 1) Park on a level, flat surface. 2) Pull the deck lever fully back toward you to put the deck into "transport" mode. 3) twist the "cutting" height knob (just below your seat) to the height you want the grass cut. Has choices by 1/2" increments from 1" to 3.5". The deck in "transport" mode is 4". 4) Lower the deck lever to the midway/"floating" mode point. 5) Adjust each deck wheel with its own peg & pin to have at least 1/4" clearance from ground. Thats it for "cutting height" adjustments

Yard works 4.5hp 42" cut lawn tractor cuts fine when mower deck is up on 4, but when it is lowered it cuts out and won't cut the grass.


4.5 hp will not power a 42 inch deck any way you cut it quite likely the blades need sharpened real bad .motor needs to run fast when tryng to cut also as that throws the grass out of the deck

I want to set the wheels for the deepest cut. In what direction should the wheels be adjusted-up or down?


If you move the wheels up, thereby lowering the cutting deck, it will cut the grass shorter on each pass.
If you move the wheels down, thereby raising the cutting deck, it will leave the grass longer on each pass.

Uneven grass cut, makes the lawn look striped.


First make sure all the tires have the same pressure of air.

Then I would measure how much the one side of the deck is higher than the other. Then I would look under the tractor and there should be a horrozontal bar atatching to the deck and a bar coming down from the mower into this bar. usually there is a nut on the bottom than can be tighened or loosened to raise or lower the deck on that side.

There might also be a nob on the tractor that shows a picture of tall grass being cut, if you turn that that might also raise or lower the deck on either side.

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.
