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?
