Assembly Instructions

Deck Leveling

1. Position mower on a smooth, level surface. Set the cutting height to the highest position - 4 in.

(102 mm) - for easy access under the deck to measure blade height. Refer to ADJUSTING

CUTTING HEIGHT in Operating Instructions.

NOTE: A block of wood cut 4 in. (102 mm) high is a convenient gauge to measure blade height above ground during the leveling process.


The machine must be shut off during this procedure.

2. Check the side-to-side level. Rotate each

blade sideways and measure the distance from blade tip to ground on each side. If measurements vary more than 1/8 in. (3 mm), add a washer shim under the deck support pins on the low side to level the deck.

3. Check the front-to-rear level. Rotate the blades

to point forward. Measure the distance from blade tip to ground on the front and rear. The rear of the blade should be 1/8 to 1/4 in. (3 to 6 mm) higher than the front of the blade; shim the rear

(or front) deck support pins equally to achieve at

least 1/8 in. (3 mm) difference.

NOTE: The mower deck and support frame are jig welded; within normal tolerances, very little, if any, shimming should be required to level the deck. Tire pressure will influence the levelness of the deck. Check the tire pressure as a possible cause of the deck not being level.
