SOURCE: Blades won't disengage

Hi,
When the mower is off and the clutch is disengaged you should not be able to physically turn the blade(s) if you can then you need to adjust the blade brake (look on the mower deck and you should see what appears to be a brake pad). Your owners manual will show you how to adjust. If you need a copy of the owners manual then I would suggest going to www.managemyhome.com and downloading a free copy of the manual for your mower (Need model number which starts is located under the seat).
Good luck!

SOURCE: 42" deck not cutting level

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--

Left side is scalping especially when turning


Stephen Bent/damage blade or spindle, check your deck for support link pin missing, damaged or rusted out brackets, blade spindle loose/mount damages or rusted out, missing deck support spring,wheel/roller if equipped, damaged blades, Recheck tire pressure and front steering axles for bent/damage, etc.
When measuring deck for level, measure at blade tips not the deck on a flat level surface. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Why does unit run sluggish when blades are engaged?


if you are talking about before even moving, it could be grass and dirt caked inside of the deck. If you are talking about when you start mowing, it could be front to back height adjustment. owners manual has instructions for adjusting deck height.

I need to adjust my scag mower deck


The mower deck can be adjusted from a height of 1.0 inch to 6.0 inches at 1/4-inch intervals. To adjust the cutting height:
1. Disengage the power to the cutter blades.
2. Push the cutting height adjustment foot pedal all the way forward using your right foot until it locks in place
3. Insert the lanyard pin into the cutting height index at the desired cutting height. Push forward on the deck lift foot lever, hold in place and pull back on the deck release lever. Slowly release the foot pedal. A deck height decal is located on the cutting height index as an aid in adjusting the deck to the desired height.

Low under the steering wheel there may be an adjusting knob. If it is there are you turn it, it should adjust the height of the deck. If you lower the deck and try to turn the knob it will be difficult to turn and you will know that is what it is for, the deck lower stop. Then pull up the deck and adjust a bit and lower the deck and see where it is, repeat until satisfied with the deck height when lowered.

How do you set the mower blade height on a riding mower. The mower deck is set by the height adjuster but how about the blade


The blade height is not adjustable on any of the tractors I have worked on or owned. The blade seats against a shoulder on a spindle and held in place by a nut. Sometimes replacement blades are not shaped the same as the original and changes the blade cuttnig height but other than in those circustances there is no adjustment.

It sounds like your mowing deck is too close to the ground. Can you adjust the blade height with a lever? I have a Craftsman riding mower, my deck height is adjusted manually with the use of a locking level shifter, be sure yours is set to the proper minimum height and this will eliminate driving the blades into the turf.
