Leveling Craftsman Mower Deck - tip for others Original Message Jul 28, 2006 7:13 am
I have a Craftsman LT1000 that started to mow very unevenly. I checked the side to side measurements as per the manual (was level) and went through all the other troubleshooting steps. There was no improvement. Then I decided to check the deck level at my usual mowing height. It was 1/2" lower on one side. The manual says to check the level at the deck's highest position. On my machine anyway, the deck is not suspended freely at that point and thus gives a false level measurement. I adjusted the deck at its mowing level and it works fine now.
