Question about Husqvarna Lawn Tractor 48" Deck, 23 Hp, Model# Yth2348

1 Answer

Can't level deck.

Changed blades, Leveled deck on level concrete surface. Checked air pressure on all tires.

Appears to be too much pressure on front center wheel on deck (constantly cocked over). Front adjustment arm is screwed all the way down.

I'm lost. Cutting is off, and on level 6, outside of cut is the same level on both sides; while center is scalping the ground - still too low.

Left side is scalping especially when turning


Stephen Bent/damage blade or spindle, check your deck for support link pin missing, damaged or rusted out brackets, blade spindle loose/mount damages or rusted out, missing deck support spring,wheel/roller if equipped, damaged blades, Recheck tire pressure and front steering axles for bent/damage, etc.
When measuring deck for level, measure at blade tips not the deck on a flat level surface. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How do I level the deck on a John Deere X500 mower


FInd and buy a deck level guage (makes it so much easier) photo.25191349-sc2hyhwnmj3wm0xvqhiyjoyo-1-0_0.jpgAdjust the front tire pressures to 14 psi. Set the rear tires to 10 psi. Make sure that the mower is on level ground,concrete driveway or garage floor. Set you deck height knob to 2.5 inches. Move the blades to where the blade tips are pointing to the side of the mower deck. Level the deck side to side by adjusting the lift link nuts,15mm or 17mm wrench. Get the side to side as level and possible and close to a number or mark on the guage. Move the blade tips to the front of the mower deck. Check the front to back and have a 1/8" to 1/4" lower on the front of the blades than the back. 18mm and 19mm wrenches for the front adjusting bracket.

What is the proper way to adjust deck of a gravely pro stance 52" fixed deck? Should deck be level or slightly pitched to front?


Ideally, the blades should be level when measured on a flat concrete surface. Otherwise, they'll cut shallow trenches - front if the deck is pitched forward, rear if the deck is pitched rearward. If the blades are level, they'll cut flat all the way across.

Husky yth1542xp. I've changed the blades, leveled


When levelling the deck, rotate the blades so that the right blade has one of its cutting edges at or near the right side center of the deck. Do the opposite with the left. Measure to the blades from the level ground, not to the deck. Try leveling that way.

We changed the blades, changes a spindle and checked the deck and tire pressure on our Poulan Pro Mower. It is still cutting uneven. What else should we check.


Well the plane of the spinning blades obviously is not parallel to the ground. While the ground will never be level, do what you can and first get the mower on a good piece of flat concrete. Measure distance between each corner of the mower deck to the concrete. You have had the deck off, the deck hang mechanisms have some adjustment so you can lower the front of the deck relative to the rear and vice versa, and lower the left relative to the right side, and vice versa. Look for threaded rods with adjusting nuts, pins which can go into different holes, etc.

As a last resort you could google "poulan, mower, manual" which would take you to their website and you can download the manual for the mower. All my mowers, MTD, Husq, Simplicity, came with a manual and had explicit instructions for this process. Most all these mowers are made by Roper or AYP and you may find information by googling those companies.

Its not mowing evenly


You need to level the deck. On most mowers you level the deck from side to side evenly but have the front of the deck 1/4" lower than the back.
