Mower deck leveling

Recommended Posts


When leveling the mower deck (front to rear) what adjustment do you find works best?  The manual for B series tractors called for the front of the blade to be 1/2" higher than the rear of the blade with the rollers set for the highest cutting position.  The manual for 900 series tractors calls for the front to be 1/8" to 1/4" higher than the rear.  For a different type mower (Woods 3 point hitch finish mower) the manual calls for the reverse of above with the rear of the deck up to 1/2" higher than the front.  And last, instructions for a 3 point hitch rotary cutter says for least power use have the front lower and for smoothest finish have the rear lower.

Which mower are you trying to set up? Go with what the manual says for that deck. Simplicity/AC engineers did the testing before the set up was printed in the manual. I don't believe they would steer you wrong.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
