Question about Troy-Bilt Pony Garden Tiller

1 Answer

Level 5 on the deck height is where I would want 3 to be. How do I raise the deck? I tried the front screw which just raises the front. The 3 holes on the rear end of the deck don't make any differnece that I can see. Thanks! Clay Emerson

How to raise the deck of a Toro SS 5000 mower above the highest factroy setting


Hi Robert:
I'd start by looking at the mechanism with the engine off while someone else moved the height adjust lever from hi to lo several times.
There will be 2 or 3 linkages that connect the deck vertically to the height adjust mechanism. Shortening these linkages should raise the cut height. If you're lucky, there should be enough clearance to allow the linkages to be drilled so that you can simply move the mounting pins into the new holes.
Or, you could make shorter linkages.
Best of luck.

I have a John Deere LX178 lawn tractor and the mower deck will not raise/lower. It is all the way down and pushing in the button is how i've ALWAYS adjusted the height. It will not budge


1) NEVER adjust to where the deck wheels touch the ground. The wheels are to ride 1/4" off the ground. 2) The long lever to your left which raises & lowers the deck has 3 settings. 1- Fully back toward you which has the deck raised (called transport mode). 2- Halfway down which is the normal mowing mode (called float mode) 3- Fully away from you which sets the deck fully on the ground. This mode is ONLY used for VERY rough terrain where the deck risks getting pushed into "transport" or "full up" mode & getting stuck there. 3) On front-to-back tilt, the front should be 1/2inch lower than the back for least damage to the grass. Ok-now to adjust "cutting" height. 1) Park on a level, flat surface. 2) Pull the deck lever fully back toward you to put the deck into "transport" mode. 3) twist the "cutting" height knob (just below your seat) to the height you want the grass cut. Has choices by 1/2" increments from 1" to 3.5". The deck in "transport" mode is 4". 4) Lower the deck lever to the midway/"floating" mode point. 5) Adjust each deck wheel with its own peg & pin to have at least 1/4" clearance from ground. Thats it for "cutting height" adjustments

Ahow to adjust the deck height of a craftsman riding mower


The deck should have a handle to raise or lower deck. To level the deck you can look at the front of the deck attachment and should see a threaded rod going through a plate in front bottom of chassis. Tightening this nut will raise front end and vice versa. I hope this helps.

Troy Bilt zero turn Mustang Xp 50" deck height. My


raise the back as high as you like but unless you raise the front as well it will still cut short. If you want it higher and there appears there is no adjustment left you may have to re thread the adjusting screws to shorter dimensions or if it is on levers you may have to drill new holes further up the bars.

I purchased a used Craftsman LT 1000 17 hp 42"


I've had to do this at least 5 times. If you look under the body, there are two supports that carry the mower deck and lift and lower it. Each of these has a nut that holds up the deck and the nut is on a stud that goes up and down when you raise or lower the lever. Put the deck in the middle of it's range, around #3, make sure the key is off, move your blades so they are on the right and left edge of the deck.
Get yourself a device to measure blade to ground height, I have a block of wood that is 3 inches long. Make sure your floor or ground is level and tires are properly pumped up. Then raise or lower the adjustment nuts until both sides are equal height.

Deck only raises a little bit, not the way it is supposed to. Selections 1-4 is the same level, resting on the ground. how do i fix this


The bolts or wing nuts for the deck adjustment have likely come loose or off entirely from the raising/ lowering undercarriage.
Once you have identified the loose or missing nuts (and replaced, making sure to add lock washers) then move the mower to a flat, level surface and move height lever to the lowest setting (some mowers have a flap over an ultra-low setting for this purpose).
Now tighten the nuts on the raising / lowering arms. You should now have normal control over the height. Farmerbear at FixYa.com

How to adjust mower deck height


There should be two threaded rods with a nut on them that goes from the frame to the deck. Check the height of each blade and which ever side is out of balance you can disconnect that sides rod (usually held onto the mount with a clip or cotter pin) and turn the rod to either raise or lower your deck until it is level.

The above was for leveling your deck.

If you just need to raise or lower the deck depends on if you have a lever on the right side with a push button on top just depress the push button and push forward to lower or pull back to raise.
It might have a round knob that you turn to raise or lower.

Good luck

Husqvarna gth main belt keeps breaking


Make sure the mower rake angle is not too much,On level floor point one of the blades in a front rear orientation,measure height of blade from floor the front measurement should be no more than 1/4" lower than the rear measurement.If the front of the mower is too low the angle the belt has to run is too much and the belt will twist and wear rap[idly.To raise the front of the deck there are either one or two adjustment rods that attach the front of mower deck to frame tighten this adjustment up to raise the front of mower deck.
