SOURCE: When I lower the blade deck on my Troy Bilt mower

If it is a 2 cylinder with a set of bent valve push rods on one side it may well start and sound good, but it will not be able to do the work as only one cylinder is functional. I had a similar problem on a B&S V2. Pull the plug wires off one at a time. If it makes no difference with one plug wire off and is totally dead with the other plug wire off, then you have a dead cylinder.

I have a Craftsman SL3500 42" riding lwan mower. the two blads make uneven paths ans the left blade makes a cut about 1/4" lower than the right blade. What do I do?

You should be using a up lift blade it will help by sucking up the grass to be cut. You should have an adjust on both sides of the blade deck . As for the strip check to see if you have a wheel behind the mower deck. If you do it might be the cause for mower leaving a strip uncut . Sears has been noted for putting wheels in the path of the blade area and smashing the grass down . That is also why I suggest to use an up draft blade it should **** the grass back up again so you can cut it.

Wierd grass catcher problem

There are a couple of causes for this. Is the blade height the same on the new mower? Higher blade height could cause a lot of the grass to be blown out from under the deck, and not into the catcher chute.

On the trailing edge of the mower blades is a small 'wing' for lack of a better term. There are two types of blades, mulching blades that have a lower 'wing', while catcher blades that have a slightly higher 'wing' but it makes a difference.

If the season has been hot lately, the grass may not be growing as fast, hence less clippings, and less dense grass could also cause this.

My machine does not cut the grass evenly. The right blade does not lift the grass the same as the left. New blades, new belts. Deck is clean underneath. Spindle bearings are quiet and blade turns freely....

Does the mechanism that raises & lowers the deck do it evenly at both sides, if not, is there any way of adjusting it? Where there any spacers that you might have missed before fitting the blades?

I have a 15.5 hp Craftsman Riding Mower with a 42" deck, the mower now leaves a 3inch strip between the blades and I blade cuts the grass lower on one side (scalping)

As for the stripe, you will need to change the blades, they are worn out, if not damaged outright. As for the cutting the grass lower on one side, since you are changing the blades, remove the deck and inspect the spindle/mandrel on the troublesome side paying close attention to the ears that the bolts that mount it go into, you may well find that one of them is cracked. If so, replace it. The spindle/mandrel cost a little over $60.

I hope this helps you out.

Is it best to use one spacer or two to get a shorter grass?

Hi, two spacers will put the blade lower for shorter grass but you need to make sure they don't put the blade lower than the deck skirt. Regards Phil.
