If you have the owners/operators manual that came with the mower, it will have instructions on how to LEVEL the mower deck. That sounds like your problem. Deck wheels would greatly help also by stabilizing the deck so it doesn't bounce and "float" so much while mowing.

Craftmans mover blade keeps hitting ground


Is the deck too low or one side lower than the other? Level the deck side to side, front should be a little lower than back (about 1/4 inch). check tires for correct air pressure. Make sure blades are balanced.

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.

Did you buy this mower from a dealer and built up and checked over or did you buy it in a box and put it together yourself? i suspect you probably bought it in a box and put it together yourself as it sounds as though the engine isnt reving high enough. Briggs and stratton engines are well known to come out of the box with the engines reving much lower than they should be. you will need to check and adjust the high speed engine revs to approx 2900-3100 rpm

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.
