Why is my mower leaving a trail of grass on the right hand side?
Answer

The issue is probably the amount of material that is being cut. The blades turn counter clockwise, so if you try to cut more material than the unit can handle, you will have a windrow of material build up on the right hand side.

Should the front of the mower run lower than the rear?
Answer

Yes. The grass is cut on the front side of the mower and not at the rear. This leaves a better and more consistent cut and aides in better material distribution.

How do you set the belt tension on this mower?
Answer

The belt tension is set with a spring and an eyebolt. Tighten or shorten the eyebolt to increase belt tension or loosen or lengthen the bolt to relieve tension. The correct tension is achieved when pressure is applied to the center of the longest run and belt is able to be pressed in about ½” from static position.

How do I remove the blades?
Answer

The blade bolts are rh threads and the best way to remove them is by using an air ratchet or gun. If that is not an option, you need to lock the blade in place with a block of wood. When reinstalling the blades, tighten the blade bolt to 55 lbs.

Do I leave my lower arm of the tractor in float when the mower is in use?
Answer

You can, but there is already some float built into the lower lugs of the unit.
