    Canít get my deck level.

    My E130 42Ē with mulching attachment. Iíve got messed with this all summer and canít get it right. It measures perfectly fine in my garage but the day after I mow it looks like this. I hope the pictures show. I always mow back and forth in a different direction each time. Drives my neighbors crazy. Any thoughts? Thanks

    Have you checked tire pressures?
    Or even try raising the deck like half an inch?

    You are measuring at the blade tips, right?

    You did not mention if you followed the steps in the Operators Manual in section 30(click here → Checking and Adjusting Mower Deck Level).

    When they state, "Make sure machine is on a flat, level surface", they mean Level Concrete.

    After that, the proper Tire Inflation is key. It's very important.

    Print this page and follow each step in order. Check-off each step as it's done.

    If all steps are followed and the cut is still not correct, check for loose hardware(nuts/bolts) on the frame.

    Actually do you have 4' or 6' carpenter level to check your floor? The section of floor where you want to measure left to right and front to back:

    __|__ Then across diagonally too X
    > |

    You have to find a spot big enough for the tractor and deck where the level meets the concrete floor all the way, when checked with the level in those 4 directions.
