I think one of the hangers has become disconnected. There should be a leveling procedure for this in your owners manual. If you dont have that manual ... you may find the leveling procedure at the Sears web site. Leveling procedure is pretty standard ... the basic idea is get on a level surface --- your garage --- measure from the deck to the floor on 4 corners ... make adjustments as required front to back and then side to side. Once you are on the floor ... you will see what to do.

I have a problem leveling my mower deck. I level it at the sides and front .I use the mower and it cuts uneven. mower is deck is out of alignment. less than 1 hour on it.


The deck could be bent, or you will probably have to level the back of the deck as well. Another thing to check is the air in the tires, this can cause an uneven cut. Although the tire may look pumped up, with the weight of a person on the tractor can cause an uneven cut.

The mower is mowing uneven in the front. what can i do? it seems that it is scalping the grass but both sides are level


Look under the mower deck. If you can't see well and work on it, you may have to remove the mower deck and flip it over on the ground. Grass and mud buildup in the decj could cause a blade to pinch grass, 'scalping' the lawn. Clean it all out. Dull blades cause cut grass to look torn and brown. Remove and sharpen. Bent blade will cause uneven cut. Replace it. Good luck! Please rate if you found this helpful, thanks!

I have a Craftsman 42" rider cuts uneven


Check your tire pressure first, uneven tore pressure will cause this problem.On the rear of cutting deck on both sides there are height adjustments, if your deck has a rear roller this also can be adjusted to compensate,If your a stout person sitting on tractor can cause unevenes.
