How to level the mowing deck on 2002 John Deere (Scotts) 42 " mower. Mower deck drags on right side. Mower height adjuster doesnt work seems jammed.

Have a look underneath while someone operates the height adjustment. There's probably a link arm come off which does deck height. Go to google images for this machine, type height adjustment and look at the pictures if you don't have a handbook. Google JD handbooks and see if you can find a free download.

Left side is scalping especially when turning

Stephen Bent/damage blade or spindle, check your deck for support link pin missing, damaged or rusted out brackets, blade spindle loose/mount damages or rusted out, missing deck support spring,wheel/roller if equipped, damaged blades, Recheck tire pressure and front steering axles for bent/damage, etc.
When measuring deck for level, measure at blade tips not the deck on a flat level surface. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

My Craftsman riding mower doesnt cut EVENLY. How dow I adjust the deck components to get a flush cut?

You might start with making sure the tires are the same height as the one across from it. For years now the tires on the mowers seem to be nothing but a tube sock dipped in rubber, they all leak to some point.On my MTD I have a short 2 x 4 block of wood I stand on edge and push it up to the rear axle where it bolts to the body and air it up till it just slides under , then do the other side, need to match or one side of the deck is lower.On the front I had cut the length of that 2 x 4 block to the right height on end. On low pressure tires using a air gauge is not the same,wrapping a tape measure around them till the match is the rule but a pain. There is a way under the tractor to level the deck but this part needs to be right first because they go down from week to week. I also put a Dixie cub of antifreeze in each tire and as long as you use the mower regular it helps a bunch. After doing this matching tires part and it still need adjustment come back with Model number and I would be glad to continue helping you.

A sears dozer blade will not sit side is an inch higher then the other on a level surface. was originally like this but has gotten worse

It does sound like you have a bent frame. It can also be soft tires on one side of the tractor. You can try putting a block under the lower end of the blade (while still attached) and push down on the the higher end of the blade to spring things back in shape.

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.

My father in laws mower is mowing low on one side. We pulled the blades off, and they don't appear to be bent. Seems to hang a little low on the left side, but can't figure out why. Model is a...

Take it to a level spot in the driveway and measure the deck height. On one side then the other. If the mower is a deck on a tractor setup, there should be adjustments to fine tune the height on either side. If it ia a walk behind and measures uneven, the only thing it can be is the wheels aren't raises/lowered evenly or one side has more wear than the other.

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

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

One blade is much higher on my riding mower. how do I even them up? This is murray 42 inch.

This is rather odd. Are you saying it's higher because of the grass height from one side of the deck to the other after mowing?
Sometimes when a spindle bearing is sloppy or played out, the belt pulls the spindle to one side. As you might imagine, this tilts the cutting blage and causes a close cut on the inside and high cut on the outer.
I would check the spindles for bearing issues. If they are ok, I would check to see if you have an issue where one blade that might be installed incorrectly. The heights aren't adjustable per the blades, just the entire deck is adjustable.
I hope this helps... Good luck!
