    60D mower touching rear wheel when raised [fixed]

    How close should the 60D be to the back wheels? Just got the new machine machine w/60D and it wasn't level of course. So after I got it leveled out, I noticed the back of the deck is just about touching the back wheels. My old 1026R was definitely not that close. Would pulling in the front draft arms fix this? I'm not picturing how since that would be pulling the deck against the rear draft arm hooks and mess up the front/back level?

    -- edit --

    Fixed. Just needed to be leveled and the ramps adjusted forward. Easy.

    I would say that you need to pull mower and check alignment of all brackets, etc. Looks like poor installation or damaged parts. I'd get it up on some wheel ramps and check out. Just because dealer assembled doesn't mean it's right. Most of the time they use their entry level employees and enough is not paid to details. The front may need adjusting to pull the mower forward and with your setup things might be binding.

    What I would do...

    Take the deck and all the attaching hardware off and start the installation from scratch.

    I assume the mmm is engaged in the lift arm slots and fully engaged in the slots so that the latch is latched???

    The deck shouldn’t contact the tires. But there is very little clearance in the full up position. The tires in the pics look brand new to me. Wonder if they would be slightly over size ? Maybe over inflated ?

    I think this post points out the fact that even though people buy this equipment, there is hands on knowledge need to properly operate. I've never had a piece of equipment that I didn't have to make some adjustments maybe even alterations. I don't use my belly mower on my 1025R but I can tell you it has many adjustments that have to be made and maintence on the cradle connector if used. I use my as backhoe tractor and removed all the rattling items. But there are many, many adjustments one can make. I know JD likes the sales aspect but my opinion is one was going to use only as a mowing tractor would be to use the manual connected drive shaft and get the clearance adjusted from the front pull bracket. The mower deck attaching brackets are light as well as some other things and I wouldn't take much to damage the unit.

    I don't think that the OP still has a 1026R, Stan. I don't know which model he has now, although the information in the thread you linked to has solved a lot of attachment problems for people.

    When I adjusted the level, I raised the side links up as high as possible. So that's probably why it didn't get too close to the wheel before now. I'm going to put my load-and-go brackets on this morning and run through the leveling procedure. I'm sure it will all line up once I'm done. I don't think there is much down there to be installed wrong, it is either attached or it isn't attached. Will advise.
