    1025 Mower 60

    I was looking at mower...seems to not mow level? In the front of mower there is a u shaped bracket that connects to mower deck on loop end and the other open end of u shape is connected to slots in front of tractor. There is one bolt sticking out near the deck. it is just hanging there with one nut and the other nut is gone. I don't under stand what this bolt does? And I have been mowing with it that way for I don't know how long. I saw a picture on here that looks like there is a spring connected in that area also and I have no spring? Advice of what to do at this point?

    Spring sprung.

    You need the spring. The bolt is the adjustable "stopper" for the mower deck draft arms (the U-shaped bar you speak of). When the deck is off, the spring keeps the draft arms lifted and the stopper bolt (when properly adjusted) holds the draft arm assembly at the proper height for reconnecting.

    This link will help you level out your deck.

    Wow that was fast...Anyone heard of the spring coming off? Or was it because the bolt fell out? I'm going to find a nut and "ball Park it" for adjustment I guess. until I have time to remove and do it right. Is spring needed when mounted? or is it for the attaching process? I may see if I can find a spring today at Hardware store. The JD dealer will be $25 I'm guessing.
    Thanks

    Ok Read through the adjustment procedures...Do the anti scalping wheels contact the ground more than not? Seems if they are set at 1/8th clearance they will roll most of the time? So what percent of the mowing action should be full floating or rolling on scalp wheels?
    Thanks

    They will roll, it's ok, it designed to do that. Just get your 3/8" clearance set on flat and level ground, then mow and enjoy!

    OK...... how about a shorter Grass discharge chute? This thing seems to hang out there about a yard! Ideas or things you have done to yours?

    I've seen people use a rope to pull it up to clear spots and also a bungee cord to just hold it up. For a while I left mine off. I have a mulch kit and you remove it once the mulch kit is on. I like the way it directs the discharge so right now I just mow around stuff with it. It is massive though....
