SOURCE: the deck will not raise even

There is a pin that has come out of it's holf from the right side of the deck. Have someone raise the deck up and down and you should see a bracket or rod moving up and down. This attaches to the deck with a clevis pin to hold it in place.
Good Day.

SOURCE: How do I raise and adjust my mower deck

A lot of mowers require adjusting the wheels to a desired level.
There should be on every wheel that lets you adjust it up or down.

Why can't I raise or lower the deck?

Sounds like you have jammed linkages which raise and lower deck, you can try this which usually works best with assistant.
With engine off, shake the deck vigorously (up,down, back and forth) while try to raise deck with lever.
Check for worn or damaged arms, springs, deck mounting points, etc and repair or replace.

My 4040 Simplicity tractor will not go. Wife was mowing grass with it and she backed up and tried to go forward and the tractor would creep a little but I can hold it back with my hand? I checked the key...

Can you turn the shaft pulley by hand with the engine not running? If so your key is still there but broken off. Check all belts and see if they are ok or maybe has come off the pulley. Check belt tightness as well. Belt also could be worn out so it slips.

Troy Bilt zero turn Mustang Xp 50" deck height. My

raise the back as high as you like but unless you raise the front as well it will still cut short. If you want it higher and there appears there is no adjustment left you may have to re thread the adjusting screws to shorter dimensions or if it is on levers you may have to drill new holes further up the bars.

I own a 42" Troy Bilt zero turn. The PTO switch

What the problem is (im not sure if they are called this) but the deck pulley brakes are worn out.
Basically if you look under the rider frame side (on top of the deck). There are on each side for each spindle pulley a flat metal tab. On the underside of that is just like a brake on your car. So when you raise the deck the pulley brakes hit the top of the pulleys and stop them from spinning. Which cause the blades to stop spinnign. There are probably turning at 10% of there normal speed. If that sound like what its doing check the brakes.
They are a replaceable part. Sorry I just cant remember exactly what they are called. Over the years they just wear out like a set of brake pads on your car. And the mower cuts and just work fine. Thats where I would start. When they wear out, the friction material is gone. Best Reguards, Premium FixYa Support

How to adjust mower deck height

There should be two threaded rods with a nut on them that goes from the frame to the deck. Check the height of each blade and which ever side is out of balance you can disconnect that sides rod (usually held onto the mount with a clip or cotter pin) and turn the rod to either raise or lower your deck until it is level.

The above was for leveling your deck.

If you just need to raise or lower the deck depends on if you have a lever on the right side with a push button on top just depress the push button and push forward to lower or pull back to raise.
It might have a round knob that you turn to raise or lower.

Good luck
