Setting the cutting heighth on my riding mower.

I have a Bolens 22.5 hp riding mower...I lower the carriage to mow...and even on the highest setting it practically scalps my lawn. I've hit dirt even with the blades. I don't see a height adjustment on it other than letting the carriage lever down ..which also engages the blades belt. Thanks from Omaha Ne

Sounds like you have some bent blades or spindle shafts.If not then the lift bracket on the front of the deck may be bent or the weld broken or cracked.

I struck an object while mowing my yard and the tractor wont start or even crank what could the problem be?


start by disengaging the blade and putting the deck to it's highest position, prior to attempting to start the mower inspect under the mower deck making sure there is no Debee wedged interfering with the blade rotation, check your spindle's for play and inspect your mower and drive belts. once complete than give it a try. if by chance it does start but turns over you more than likely sheered the flywheel key.

Make sure the shape edge of the blades is installed closer to the ground. I don't think it matters what the position of the blade is.

While mowing the grass the engine stalls and then catches back and stalls and catches back contuniually. the Murry select riding mower model number 405000x8c.


bad fuel filter, maybe cutting to fast, or grass is to high for what ever setting your at.

example. if grass is more then 10'' high, its not recommended to try and cut it to 3'' in one shot. start with the highest setting, and work it down. hope this helps.......

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.

How to adjust height on tractor mower model no. 917.270812? I turn the adjustment knob and it will lock in only on the highest and lowest heights and nowhere in between.


You need to turn that knob to its highest point with the deck height lever to its highest setting. Now turn that knob counter clockwise a few turns and let the deck lever all the way down. That knob will stop the lever part way down. If it mowes to high rase that deck lever again and turn that knob counter clockwise some more and let that deck lever down again. Repete till you have the correct cutting height. If you were cutting to low turn the knob clockwise insted of counter clockwise in the instruction above. The knob only set the stop of the deck lever. Once set the deck lever lifts the deck up and holds it but when you let that lever down it returns to its mowing set height.
