SOURCE: my deck is way too low. How do I adjust it?

Your mower should have a lever on it that you move to raise or lower your deck. The lever will normally have the slots that it locks into numbered like the trans gears if yours is not automatic.

SOURCE: my craftsman riding lawnmower 42"

Hi,
The first thing to check is the wheels on the back corners of the deck....amke sure that they are set at the same height and that the bearings are not out of the wheel, which would allow the deck to sink lower on one side.
If all of that checks out then you have problems under the deck....
The bearings that hold the blades can wear allowing one of the blades to drop, or one of the blades could be bent which could cause it to cut lower...to fix that bearings will have to be replaced or the blades will have to be replaced if bent.....

These would be the causes for your mower to cut unevenly...

try this link, they don't deal specifically with craftsman parts, though they do have aftermarket suitable substitutes for craftsmen. This website has excellent illustrated parts breakdowns for numerous other riding lawnmowers though and I'll bet that something like MTD or White Outdoor is exactly the same as your mower. I have a White outdoor 42 inch riding mower and have changed numerous parts using these illustrations. Good luck

42 deck craftsman riding mower. how do you get blades off? md 91721880.


On most riding lawnmowers, you can remove the blades reaching underneath the deck while the deck is set to its highest position. This may not be possible on lawnmowers with three blades; however, most 42 inch mowers have two blades.

The blades are usually held on with either one or two bolts (on each blade). Oftentimes, too, there is a lock washer underneath the bolt.

If you have auto ramps, it might help to push the front end of the mower up on the ramps. This can give you more room to access the blade bolts.

If the blades have not been removed before, those bolts can be on really tight. You might need to use some kind of breaker bar on your wrench to give you more leverage.
