    Hi all, I have a 1023E with a belly mower. When I swap the hydraulic lines from mower to the bucket the mower always goes back to the mowing position and drags on the ground. I put the mower in the lock position and I am assuming that it should keep the mower from falling down on the wheels and dragging around, and giving me no ground clearance. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

    If you look under the left side of the tractor behind the tire you can see how the mower height / grass cut adjuster works, it’s just a circular metal cam with metal steps that catch on an arm of the metal cantilever that raises and lowers the deck. When you turn it to the lock position that cam is just in the highest position. However, if it is not aligned correctly, you could be turning it to the “install” position which allows the deck to drop down to the ground.

    If you look under there you should be able to see what’s going on, there are also several threads here about the mower deck adjustments with pictures of the apparatus I am referring to.
