Craftsman mower deck height question
Got a 1990 Craftsman GT6000 917.254450 with an 18hp B&S opposed twin vertical shaft. My question is about the 44 inch mower deck, I've adjusted it exactly like it says in the owners manual but even with the lift lever locked in the raised position it cuts about 3/4 inch lower then what I would like. I don't like how low the deck hangs in the front. The mower deck scalps the grass really bad and I can't get it into my shed because the front hangs up on the lip of the shed floor. With the lift lever locked in the raised position the back is 3' off the ground but the front is an inch. I don't see any adjustment for raising the front of the deck, just the back and side to side. I can't mow in any other position except with the lift lever locked in the raised because then the front of the deck drags on the ground. I also have the depth knob maxed out in the raised position which is no help. Does anybody know how I can raise up the front of the deck or is just nature of the beast?
