MAKE DARN SURE THE POWER IS OFF BEFORE YOU START THE PROCEEDURE BELOW! there should be 4 connection points for this machine. Clear out your garage ... get something comfortable to lay on and a small supply of proper supply wrenches and a tape measure. put the deck in UP position. put the blades perpendicular to the front to back axis of the machine. Measure from the floor to the blade tips on the outside. record the numbers. turn the blades 90 degrees. repeat. adjust the proper corner slowly (no big changes!) continue to measure until the numbers are equal.

Low on the left - change the adjustments on the left front and back. Low in the front - lift the front - both sides.

It took me several hours to do my mower when I got it new but I was pretty particular about it

You have a short somewhere . A cut or stripped wire that , at the time of lowering your deck, touches the body. It's like turning off your key. Look around under your deck and you will find what I'm talking about. Fix wire and tie up to prevent future problems. GOOD LUCK.

I have a yard man 13AH762F752 How do I know what size my deck is I thought it was a 38" and bought v-type belt and it is to shore so how do I find out my deck size?


If you have a single idler pulley you should have a 38" deck. If the deck has two idlers, then you must have a 42"deck. You should be able to approximate by measuring. This is the "cutting" width, not overall width. Two things might have happened. You didn't get the right belt, or you haven't routed it properly. Here is a link to the Yardman web site to download your manual if you don't have it. It appears that the 38" deck requires a longer belt than the 42" deck. http://manuals.mtdproducts.com/mtd/Public.do?langId=-1&BrandCode=10201

Mtd riding mower: right mower blade cutting uneven, but don't see problem


The blade can be bent or the deck is not level. Adjust the deck and level it from side to side. Now level it from front to rear with the front of the deck 1/4" lower than the back. If after leveling it, you find it still cuts uneven remove all blades and inspect them. You will more than likely find one is bent. Replace a bent blade.

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
