SOURCE: My engine cuts in and out.

Basically, sounds like a dirty carburetor. You might be able to cure this with some carb cleaner put into the gas tank and run, but more than likely it will need taken off and cleaned. This is not a hard job, but you have to be careful to connect all springs/wires back to the original position.

The surging you hear is the governor trying to keep the engine running as it starves for fuel. When it starts to die, the governor automatically opens the throttle up more and gives it more gas, thus the speeding up of the engine.

If you do feel like you'd like to tear into the carb, it isn't a real hard job. You should be able to do it with a phillips screw driver, a basic homeowner tool kit, and needle nose pliers. Be careful, take your time, and make a mental note of where everything attaches. You should take the engine and/or the mower ID number to a repair shop and get a carb rebuild kit. It more than likely will only include several gaskets and a few other minor items to accomplish the job. Oh, and get a can of spray carb cleaner as well. Look for any holes in the part of the carb that sits in the gas and make sure to give them a good spraying out.

SOURCE: My MTD 14hp lawn tractor (38", 6 speed) shuts of

You have a short somewhere . A cut or stripped wire that , at the time of lowering your deck, touches the body. It's like turning off your key. Look around under your deck and you will find what I'm talking about. Fix wire and tie up to prevent future problems. GOOD LUCK.

At the highest setting, I still cut the grass to short


The deck may be installed in the incorrect position on your tractor (if this is a tractor). If you have the owner's manual, check the information for installing the cutting deck. If not, then check the action of the lever and deck when raising it and lowering it, to verify it is working properly.

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.

Leaving streaks of grass in middle of mower


Your forward speed may be too fast for the mower blades to cut every blade of grass. It may be new, but check the deck to see if there are any dents pushing the quill assemblies up making the deck cut uneven. Or it may have the wrong blades on it.
I have seen this problem in the past with a Gravely mower. The person was trying to cut grass to fast. He sold the unit and the new onwer did not noticed any the problems the old owner described.

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.
