The blades are attached to the deck. If the deck moves , the blades move with it. They can't do otherwise...

How to correctly put on the belt that raises and lowers blade on a 2004 Dixie Chopped 72in xt3200


I don't recall a belt that raises and lowers the blade. Normally you would have either an electric or mechanical deck lift that raises and lowers the whole deck

Craftmans mover blade keeps hitting ground


Is the deck too low or one side lower than the other? Level the deck side to side, front should be a little lower than back (about 1/4 inch). check tires for correct air pressure. Make sure blades are balanced.

2000 craftman lawn tractor 917.270822 blades will not engage


If your blades won't engage when you raise the lever to engage them AND that lever moves freely without the normally expected resistance, then you've lost the cotter pin that connects the lever rod to the mower deck assembly. Very easy fix! Using the mower deck raise/lower lever, lower the mower deck to "down" position. Now, lay on your side along the right side of the mower and look up (use a flashlight) under the mower at the top of the mower deck while moving the blade engagement lever "up" (which pushes the connected rod down). At the end of the rod, you will see a hole where the mower deck and rod connect. Align the hole at the end of the rod with the matching "pin" on the mower deck (you'll see it) and insert a new cotter pin to secure them together. Use a nail if you don't have a cotter pin. Voila! you are done. The blade engagement lever will now engage/disengage your mower blades successfully. Just remember that mower deck must be down, or lowered, before you engage the blades!

I purchashed a used 26 54 husqvarna 2007 model rider and it will not cut low enough.My murray will scalp ground if i lower deck to ground.It looks like the blades are designed to be set higher off...


Low under the steering wheel there may be an adjusting knob. If it is there are you turn it, it should adjust the height of the deck. If you lower the deck and try to turn the knob it will be difficult to turn and you will know that is what it is for, the deck lower stop. Then pull up the deck and adjust a bit and lower the deck and see where it is, repeat until satisfied with the deck height when lowered.

LA110, 42" mower deck, 1


Check that the cutting tip of the blade that is cutting lower is not bent down. Also park the mower on a level surface and lower the deck and check the gap under the front of the deck is even. If not, there are levelling adjustments on the top of one side of the deck. Regards Phil

Does not give a short enough cut


Have you always had this problem?
Have you had the blades off to sharpen?
Could the blades have been mistakenly put on upside down ?
The turned up piece goes toward the deck
Check your deck hangers to be sure they are free and not binding anywhere and to be sure they are dropping as far as they can go in the lowest deck setting.
your deck should move up and down evenly as you lower and raise it.
Unless spacers are an option for this cause i wouldnt use them.
Check the tire pressure 14 psi front 10psi rear .

hope some of this helps for you

The engine run rough and backfires when deck is lowered with pto


It sounds like your blades may be restricted when you lower them. A possible solution for this problem would be to remove the mower deck and clean out all the dead grass buildup inside the housing.
