Try pulling on the cable coming down to deck. This cable might be your problem. Also check that the spring on the end of this cable is present and functional.

I would suggest checking your owner's manual. There is a leveling process and my Craftsman wasn't leveled at the factory. Once I leveled mine, it cut fine. If you can't find it in your manual, google leveling craftsman mower deck.

Craftsman 20 hp 42" lawn tractor moweer deck hitting back wheel on right side when put all the way up. checked for broken parts but none found, help


The deck is either badly out of level or has been twisted by dragging on something. Most riders have rather thin metal used in the deck and it can be damaged much easier than one might think. Re-level the deck and use a small block as a gauge or eye reference point and you may find the deck is bent.

Why does my 42 inched deck craftsman tractor cut uneven?


It needs to be leveled. Level it from side to side and front to back, then drop the front 1/4" lower than the rear. The hangers holding the deck in place are adjustable.
