If you move the wheels up, thereby lowering the cutting deck, it will cut the grass shorter on each pass.
If you move the wheels down, thereby raising the cutting deck, it will leave the grass longer on each pass.
It's not do-able without major modifications that may compromise safety, if you need much longer grass or wish to brush hog like cutting of really tall weeds you need a different rig or a power sickle attachment. I'm sorry but it's just not a good idea to hike the deck like that.
If the grass is very tall (more than 10") you will have to slow down to less than 1 mph, if you have a mulch kit on this unit, remove it to get the grass out as quickly as possible. Also, sharp blades & a level deck are important.
Is the tractor running fine until you engage the blades? Are you cutting tall grass? There are a couple of reason why it stalls. First, while the engine is OFF, you need to see if the blades move freely, you need to lay down beside the deck and reach up (with a glove on, so you won't cut yourself) and see just what is up under there. Remove any debris, I.E. old grass clippings, and anything else.(see if there is anything wrapped around the column where the blades meet the rest of the deck) Then you will have to grab one of the blades and see if it moves freely. Wiggle it back and forth and find out if all 3 move freely. Sometimes a bearing will go bad in one of the blade mounts and cause the engine to stall. Sometimes the electric clutch goes bad and then you have a whole new set of problems. Either way let me know what is going on. Please rate my answer.
I had a similar problem, and the problem was fixed by airing up one of my front tires. This may not be all of the problem, but you should eliminate this before you go adjusting.......
Just a thought, --W/D--
Is this the first time cutting grass with a lawn tractor?
How tall of grass?
Use the grass cutting heigth adjustments on the tractor to a higher setting when cutting tall grass. Cut again to a lower height setting on the second pass. Grass higher than your tractor is not good for your tractor. Follow the manual instructions for best results.
you are cutting to much grass & it isn't kicking it out fast enough out of deck which will bog it down it might help if you clean out the bottom of the deck & also dont cut really low if grass is really tall also cutting wet grass will aslo cause the bogging if i can further help e-mail me wade at email@example.com
