mower deck dragging

Recommended Posts

davidmoll
I have a 6216 42 inch mowing deck which is dragging on the turbo assist side of the deck ripping up the grass. I don't see any problems with the rollers, lift mechanism, or front mounting pins and back chain lift connection. The only thing I saw was two quarter size holes in my mowing deck right where the front mounts attach to the mowing deck. Has anyone seen these bolts break right threw the deck housing? Any ideas. Thanks Moleman

If the back edge is dragging, my "guess" is the roller bar has slipped up, lowering the deck in back. Photos of my deck before repainting this spring. Hope this might help.






Good luck! sm01

Thanks John, Thanks for the pics because my belt has recently been coming off and I see the belt stop that I am missing. I am still worried about the front of the deck because my mount is lifting slightly with two holes under them. I think it has ripped thru? Thanks Dave

John, turned out that after reparing the two mounting bolts that had pulled through the deck the dragging stopped and the deck is level again. I ordered the belt stop and while I wait, I never disengaged the mower when I stopped to empty my bagger. Belt stayed on and was able to finish the yard. Only one more round of leaf pickup this coming weekend then it's time to convert the tractor to a snowthrower. Moleman

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
