I have a sears craftsman rider..model #917.527643, I cannot lower the mower deck to the ground. Any suggestions on how I may fix this problem?


I could not look up by model number. You have the right number of digits, but the sears craftsman parts site would not recognize it. So I am guessing that you have a knob that the operator can reach under the steering wheel and lower and a little left. If you have one of these knobs, it is a deck lower limiter. It is easy to turn if the deck is fully up. If the deck is lowered to bottom and the deck does not go to bottom and you turn this knob you will feel significant resistance. This resistance is caused by the weight of the deck on the limiter. With the deck fully up, turn this knob to fully lower the limiter and then lower the deck. Should go to ground or just a hair higher.

If any questions, please send reply and I will get back to you.

I purchased a used Craftsman LT 1000 17 hp 42"


I've had to do this at least 5 times. If you look under the body, there are two supports that carry the mower deck and lift and lower it. Each of these has a nut that holds up the deck and the nut is on a stud that goes up and down when you raise or lower the lever. Put the deck in the middle of it's range, around #3, make sure the key is off, move your blades so they are on the right and left edge of the deck.
Get yourself a device to measure blade to ground height, I have a block of wood that is 3 inches long. Make sure your floor or ground is level and tires are properly pumped up. Then raise or lower the adjustment nuts until both sides are equal height.

I have a 20 HP Sears riding mower with 42" deck. Something has caused the right side of the deck to sit lower. It literally sits on the ground when lower to #1 position.


There are deck leveling adjustment bars located on most lawn tractors, most are equipped with a large plastic wing nut. There will be one on each side, with the mower off, lower the deck to the lowest position, loosen the wing nuts on each side, then re-tightnen. There is also a possibility if this is not the way your deck is levelled, there will be a deck hang wire/rod, however those are usually found on zero turn style mowers.
