truf tracer front tires

I just brought home a 48 turf tracer i just purchased. The front tires are not touching the ground at same time when on level surface. The frame does not look bent. The tires on front are the same size and looks like the same pressure. I have not had a lot of time to go over the mower, just wondering what would make it not level.

Well from what you described, one, or more tires have unequal tire pressure. Ensure that both rear tires have the same amount of air pressure, and then move to the fronts. If one or 2 are off it can cause the mower to sit unlevel. Hope this helps

Unless things have changed the front tires on your mower are solid. What LandFakers said is right on. Also, check to see how your blade tip heights compare from right to left. Sometimes, there needs to be more air in one rear tire than the other to get the rear of the mower level. If all of the above doesn't help it may be necessary to loosen all of the bolts holding the deck to the tractor and let the deck "readjust" and then retighten.

My post about using a level should have included checking the tire pressure and even better, measuring the tire circumference prior to leveling. This info is in the owner's manual which is available @ If you don't have the manual then download and print one.
