If you look at the front of the mower there are two rods that attach to the front of the tractor frame. On these rods there are 3/4 nuts that are the mower rake adjustment.First start by positioning one of the blades to a front/rear orientation. <easure the height of the blade from floor at the front part of blade and then the rear.The front measurement should be a maximum of 1/4 inch lower than the rear. Loosen up the lock-nuts on the adjusting rods and turn the nuts clockwise,this will pull the front of the mower deck up.

Why is the front of my deck on my lt 2000 craftman mower all of a sudden digging into the ground


Answer will depend on what mower you have but it sounds like the front wheel height adjuster has slipped or broken.

Craftmans mover blade keeps hitting ground


Is the deck too low or one side lower than the other? Level the deck side to side, front should be a little lower than back (about 1/4 inch). check tires for correct air pressure. Make sure blades are balanced.

I need to adjust my scag mower deck


The mower deck can be adjusted from a height of 1.0 inch to 6.0 inches at 1/4-inch intervals. To adjust the cutting height:
1. Disengage the power to the cutter blades.
2. Push the cutting height adjustment foot pedal all the way forward using your right foot until it locks in place
3. Insert the lanyard pin into the cutting height index at the desired cutting height. Push forward on the deck lift foot lever, hold in place and pull back on the deck release lever. Slowly release the foot pedal. A deck height decal is located on the cutting height index as an aid in adjusting the deck to the desired height.

The mowing deck on craftmans lt200 is leaning to one side. this causes an uneven cut


I think one of the hangers has become disconnected. There should be a leveling procedure for this in your owners manual. If you dont have that manual ... you may find the leveling procedure at the Sears web site. Leveling procedure is pretty standard ... the basic idea is get on a level surface --- your garage --- measure from the deck to the floor on 4 corners ... make adjustments as required front to back and then side to side. Once you are on the floor ... you will see what to do.

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
