    1025R 60D mmm scalping yard

    Hey guys. Maybe you can help me. My deck is scalping my yard. Any little high spot gets knocked down. Any incline gets hit either high or low. I know it's not an issue now but it will be in the spring. I was cleaning up the leaves and noticed this. I just bought the machine a very short time ago and this was my excuse to get out and play today. Thanks for your help.

    Did you adjust the wheels on the deck? They should be no more than 1/2" above the ground when the deck lowered to its cutting height.
    I adjust the wheels on my deck while it is on the concrete floor in my barn. I lower the deck, I then use a piece of 1/2" plywood to set the wheels.

    Yes I did. As I was only going after the leaves I had it set pretty high. It seems to be the center blade doing the scalping.

    Have you gone through the deck set up procedures in the manual, what height are setting the deck at? Something is definitely off somewhere, other than one unruly tree root that I've hit a few times I have never scalped my lawn with my 60d.

    No I haven't. I bought the machine used, 67 hours on it. I've got to confess, it never crossed my mind to check that. I'll start there and see what happens.

    If you have the deck set high & it is still scalping, then there is a problem. Maybe the center blade or spindle is bent. Or as PJ said the deck is not adjusted correctly.

    There have been a few threads on adding a center anti-scalp wheel. Someone just posted one in the last month. Search for it or scan the thread listing for the last month.

    Adjust, don't mow with the mmm below 3" blade cut height, lower the anti-scalp wheels all the way, and try to mow in directions that minimize cresting hills with the mmm lowered.

    Keep in mind, when cresting a hill with the mmm lowered, the distance between the front and rear anti-scalp wheels on the mmm are pretty far apart, so these wheels will also straddle the crest of the hill.

    Having two of these makes checking the adjustment easier.
