SOURCE: Black&Decker MM675 lawn mower height lever would not stay

I would look in my owners manual and get the part number for the height lever and order a new one. You could also try and wire the height lever so it can not move. I am not sure how it engages but you could may be try and bend the lever so it is tight and won't move. Just a couple of ideas.

Good luck

Usually all mowers have height adjustments of some kind. Look around your front and rear wheels, if you have a number of holes drilled into the deck ,these are your adjustment holes.You would unbolt the wheels and put them at the height you would like.
If as you say there is no adjustment, I would say buy new wheels that are an inch or more bigger than your present wheels and install them in place of your old wheels. If you go to any local dealer they will be able to help you with your problem.

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

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.

I have a Honda HRX217 versamower and I would like to know where the wheels should be for the highest height for my lawn, or should I buy a riding lawn mower to get more height. My lawn is dying with


Move the 4 wheel adjustment levers to the number 4 position which is all the way forward (towards you if facing the front of the mower) and that is the highest setting which is about 4" cut height. Each number for the lever position represents the inches in cut. In between numbers is 1/2" so in between 2 and 3 would be 2 1/2" cut as an example.

Front wheels on manual mower lock when pushing for awhile.


1 Locate the height adjustment lever on the inside of the left rear wheel.
2 Kneel next to the mower and push the left height adjustment lever toward the center of the mower. This will unlock the lever from the locking pin on which the height is currently set.

3Rotate the lever toward the front of the mower to lower the height of cut, or toward the rear of the mower to raise the height of cut.

4 Release the lever over the locking pin closest to the desired height of cut.

5 Repeat these steps with the adjustment lever on the right-side rear wheel. Be sure to set the right wheel lever to the same position as the left-side wheel's lever for an even cut.

How to adjust height on tractor mower model no. 917.270812? I turn the adjustment knob and it will lock in only on the highest and lowest heights and nowhere in between.


You need to turn that knob to its highest point with the deck height lever to its highest setting. Now turn that knob counter clockwise a few turns and let the deck lever all the way down. That knob will stop the lever part way down. If it mowes to high rase that deck lever again and turn that knob counter clockwise some more and let that deck lever down again. Repete till you have the correct cutting height. If you were cutting to low turn the knob clockwise insted of counter clockwise in the instruction above. The knob only set the stop of the deck lever. Once set the deck lever lifts the deck up and holds it but when you let that lever down it returns to its mowing set height.

Flymo Roller Compact Heigh lever keeps dropping


I drilled a hole through the lever, and used a self tapping screw to fix it permantly in position. I cannot adjust the height without drilling another hole, but it is better than buying a new machine.
