Question about Husqvarna 24HP 54" Yard Tractor ()

My 54" rider cuts into my slighty hilly and rough ground.

Husky yth1542xp. I've changed the blades, leveled

When levelling the deck, rotate the blades so that the right blade has one of its cutting edges at or near the right side center of the deck. Do the opposite with the left. Measure to the blades from the level ground, not to the deck. Try leveling that way.

Husqvarna 54 inch rider, fairly new, bought used. Deck will not fully lower or raise even after levelling per manual. Are 54 in decks more susceptible to this type issue?

the Rake adjustment is critical on this mower make sure the front to back is within 1/4 inch of each other with front being the lower this adjustment is on the front if its a single rod the bracket that attaches it to steering axle is probably sprung back this happens from running the mower into something with the deck.

Deck digs into ground

Try raising the mower's wheels one notch. That should lift the deck high enough to clear the ground and still cut to an acceptable height. Try it, if it doesn't work let me know here.

How do you adjust the cutting deck?

Pete, go back to partstree and look at the diagram for lift arms. Item #27 is your lift cables. You will notice there are several little ferrules or balls on the cables, you unhook the cable and slide these up or down as needed to adjust your deck. If you need the deck higher, you would position more of the balls under the lift arm on each side. If you can't get the desired height then your cables are stretched and need to be replaced

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

Rider cutting uneven

check and see if you have a bent blade. If bent replace. If the blades are not bent then you need to check the levelness of the deck. You can measure the distance from the blade to the ground on all the blades. Make sure you are on level ground. If one set of blades is higher or lower you will need to level the deck. Refer to you owners manual. If no owners manual there is probably some hangers that are threaded and has a nut on it. Loosen one to lower and tighten to raise. Only do one side.

good luck

Uneven cut

I suggest you park the tractor on a level hard surface. Measure from the bottom of the deck to the ground on both sides of the deck to see if it is mounted level. The next thing to check for is a bent blade. Good luck.
