why is my deck not level on walk behind

I have a great dane scamper 36 hydro walk behind. When the spacers are even on the height adjustment, the right side is about 1 inch higher. the right caster wheel doesn't even touch the ground on even surfaces. It doesn't look like the frame is bent or anything. Does anyone know what is could possibly be? Thanks.

What type of rear height adjusters does your mower have?

mower decks are meant to be tilted.

in the front or rear.

You'll want to make sure that if you have slide adjusters in the back that they are 'level' as well and have not 'slipped'.

Worth it to purchase a blade-height tool from John Deere for ~$10-12 that checks your blade-height from the floor to your bladetip. You can then make sure your blades are where you want them front-to-back as well as side-to-side.

Just leveling your deck with a level doesn't really tell the whole story.
