Mower deck adjustment ride on mower MTD 13538 cutting deck a lot lower than rear of the deck shaving the grass to dirt.

Are all the rods that hold the deck on all the same length. Has any been replaced with the wrong ones. Did this machine hit something that things were bent an out of shape.
Are your tires blown up where they should be? Soft tires will do that.

Why do the blades engage when I lift the deck up passed level 4?

Do you push or pull a handle to engage the deck? If so seems when you lift the deck it's pulling back on the deck( the rear hangers & the front) check to make sure if a equipped adjustment holes on the plate on the deck. If you had the deck out from underneath mower. Could be wear places where the clips were. If it's electrical clutch type. Could be a switch, bad or bloken wiring, or wires going to the electrical clutch could be rubbing the frame, hagers, or something else. It could be a twist in the deck belt. All I can think of right off hand. If on hangers set deck down to the lowest setting (don't force it) or intill it stops altogether. Check to see if the connection area. The rod or whatever use and see if the connection area for tightness(bad) should be a little loose. If tight ( make sure the front hasn't rose up) if so disconnect all points. Then make the front connection where lines up with a hole after the front deck to front tires are the same distance has rear part of deck to the.rear tires are the same. Then make the attachments where they land. Try it and lets see what we get and go from there

Deck not level from right to left side

Makes and models vary considerably. However there are some things which apply to every unit. First check that your tyres are evenly inflated. If you have even slight slopes the lower side will press into the grass more and so cut deeper leaving a line. If the tyres are soft this is exaggerated. Best where possible to mow up and down slope. Next park on a flat surface like you garage floor. Carefully measure the distance from the outside of the mower deck to the floor. Measure the deck height with the unit in the cutting position. Best to do this on the rear edge of the deck where it just starts to be straight across the back. On two spinner decks, one is in front of the other so they can over lap without hitting each other. This means that the distance from the rear wheels can be different on either side. Three spinner units usually have the centre one in front. The deck swings up and down from the front attachment yoke. So the front of the deck will not rise as much as the rear. There are hangers which are lifted by the pedal which lifts the deck. If the distance to the floor is unequal, adjust the hanger threads until they hang evenly. I have not yet experienced a spring in any mower hangers.

MTD 603 cutter not level. Cuts low on RH and high on LH. Is there an adjustment to make.

First make sure that your tires are all aired up the same and then park it on level concrete. Drop the deck down on 4 short pieces of 2 x 4 set on edge. Then find your 4 deck hanger rods and adjust them individually until each corner of the deck just starts to come off the 4 2 x 4's. At this point your deck should be level. hope this helps you...

Sears Tractor Mower 42" is cut cutting lawn in two uneven strips

First, check the blade, it may be bent. If not, there is an adjustment nut (9/16) on each side in the middle of the deck hanger bracket. Get on level surface and screw each up or down to get blade tips the same height on each side.

Dual blade mower leaves uncut strips between blades.

Had same uneven mowing problem with new Toro Z4200 XTR mower. Problem was one side of the U-shaped rear deck hanger rod had popped out of its chassis mount (did hit something with mowing deck). Removed hanger chassis mount & its bolt. Put end of U-shaped rear deck hanger rod back in the chassis mount and remounted hanger chassis mount & its bolt. Z4200 now cuts lawn evenly again.
