    54D on 1023e won't raise

    I have a new 1023e (8 hrs). Use the tractor to move some brush piles today. Went to clean the tractor up....lowered the mower deck to blow the leaves and twigs off, but now the deck won't raise. There is also a spring hanging loose on the left side of mower. Can anyone offer any suggestions what might cause the mower not to raise and where this spring connects to?

    What lift system do you have on it?

    I'm guessing it is a hydraulic lift system and the spring is the LVU26526 Extension Spring that retracts the hydraulic cylinder (allowing the arms to lower) when the cylinder is not under pressure. Without the springs, the lift arms would have a hard time dropping when they do not have the weight of the mower deck pulling them down. The spring does not affect the deck's ability to raise however; it's only to retract the cylinder to allow the arms to lower. I don't believe that there is a spring on the mechanical lift (though it is certainly possible; it just doesn't show in the parts breakdown).

    I can't think of any other spring on the left side of the tractor. I think we need more information and perhaps a pic or two.

    It is part 21 in the image below and connects to part 31.

    Maybe a picture of the spring, and its surrounding structures, could benefit someone wanting to help you with your issue.

    Edit: Traction has more knowledge and was faster posting than me!!

    Yup, my 1026 also had that spring hanging. I just found the proper place to connect it to.

    I had the same thing happen to my 1023 with the 54D the very 1st time I cut with it.. Couldn't get the deck to raise.. Finally discovered that the when the dealer installed the system, he had forgotten to tighten the nut that holds the arm that is part of the linkage that controls the draft arms.. I know I'm not describing this properly and I still don't know the proper name for this part.. But it is located just below and left of the seat.. Its a long metal arm that is held in place by a nut/bolt and washer.. Just thought I'd throw that out there as another place to look.. Good luck..

    Here's the diagram for the mechanical lift system. I'm assuming you're talking about the Link (#22) and Adjusting Strap (#23) ?

    Yep!, thats the one Traction.. Its part #23 in that diagram that came loose on mine.. Without it, the deck will not raise or lower..

    I'm not sure....think it's hydraulic....the way it acts....uses a lever on the right of the seat....dealer said pull the lever all the way to rear and then operate the lift.

    When I get back to the property where the tractor is stored, I will make some photos and upload them. Appreciate your input.
