John deere rider problems

6 posts in this topic

I have an 05 100 series rider that cuts unevenly, how do you go about leveling the deck? Are the bolts/nuts all metric? Hate to bring it in to the shop if I can do it myself without too much trouble, thanks.

I bring mine in because I cannot even fix a leaky faucet but I believe it is fairly easy for someone who is slightly handy. I think it tells you how to do it is the manual.

My dad has the same issue with his '07. It looks like someone cut every other pass with a machete.

I had the same problem, took it to my local JD dealer, and presto, fixed, mows great now.

Look in the manual. The basic procedure is to;

1) set the air pressure in your tires

2) Place your lawn tractor on flat pavement

3) Set the deck to your prefered mowing height

4) Check the left and right and front to back cutting heights (JD has a little tool for this)

5) Adjust the front to back cutting height (it will be in your mower deck manual)

6) Adjust the left to right cutting height (it will be in your mower deck manual)

The go mow the lawn.

I have one of these JD 100s that scalps too. But mine only does it - left edge of the deck scalps when I make a hard right turn only. Mows great straight or slow turns. Any ideas?

    • Not necessarily. Depends on circumstances. That one most definitely would be, though. No use debating, though.      You guys would make me walk out first, wouldn't ya?      O this stupid merge junk....$#@! son of a 
    • Maybe she needs to start a foundation..
    • mysnopro all of us that Ice fish feel very badly that this person died and know that we could be next since ice is never safe. I guess we just try and find away to move on and get through these times and some humor is a good way to heal. Not really making fun of someone we don't even really know. Just trying to get passed the hurt.     Jim, I have a lot of relatives that are Native and they are going to bust a gut laughing when I post this on FB to them knowing I ice fish so much.
    • Well, since the real cold is starting and trapping takes a lot of time and effort maybe you could just hold off until next year. Do some more research on the species you want to trap,  the market for their hides and consider the work involved in doing a perfect job of skinning and stretching skins. Then too,   in today's world a guy has to be extremely careful about placing traps where someones cat or dog ends up in the trap. Seeing a nice Brittany crushed and frozen in one of your traps will probably change your mind about the like of a trapper. Many outdoorsmen do some trapping when they are younger and most of them find other pursuits soon enough.  Of course there ARE serious trappers who work at it hard every season. Some thoughts.
    • Not to get technical, but after 1 hr lost person water emergencies are considered recoveries and not rescues...    
    • They say you can't fix stupid, but technically speaking, that is not always correct.
    • So tell me,  did the gather any significant intelligence from her account?  Or was it the same rambling scrambled nonsense she has been babbling at her last several public appearances. Got a quick note from a guy a week or so back who was in the audience at some function where she was speaking and he said "nobody in here can figure out what she's talking about and and the subject seems to change every few minutes. It's a hoot!"
    • nope but very interesting to say the least
    • Have you ever seen this? What do you think?    
    • 4chan did it. Well, not really hacked. The security question for her email was "what elementary school did you attend", which anyone could google because she is famous. So someone just used password recovery and took her account.   The DNC hacking was coordinated phishing, still a simple attack, but not quite as easy to pull off by just any old soul.
