I would start by getting the mower onto a flat piece of concrete. Lower the deck all the way and measure the distance between each corner and the ground, then raise the deck all the way and measure the distance between each corner and the ground. While the deck is up make sure that both blades are mounted correctly, not upside down. Get a manual and find the adjustments and how they work, then make the adjustments to make the distance the same between each corner and the ground. If you can't find a manual look for threaded rods and nuts and/or pins and think it through before you start making the adjustments. I find these problems are generally due to an upside down blade or someone not putting the deck back on as they took it off.

I have a sentinel lawn tractor made by Murray model 425615X80A I need an deck leveling instructions


There should be an adjustment link on one side which will allow you to raise/lower that side to even it with the other side.
Also check to see if you have a bent blade on one side that is cutting in an un-level manner. Rocks and other debris can easily bend a blade

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

My mowers cuts uneven I replaced the blades but it still cuts uneven how can I level it?


Park mower on a level flat surface ( a concrete garage floor is ideal ) lift deck up until you can put a piece of a 2x4 flat underneath the deck and lower deck until it just contacts the 2x4. loosen adjustment nuts or turnbuckles and adjust until the deck just starts to clear the 2x4. this should level your deck. Now , lift the deck and remove the 2x4. put blade height lever on a known cut length and with a tape measure, measure the tips of the blades from the floor to the blade tip...they should all be the same within 1/8 of an inch...if not then you either have a bent blade, bent spindle shaft, or spindle bolts are loose or misaligned. Your deck could be warped too...depending on how hard a lick it took...good luck !!! ;-D

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.
