    After 2 yrs, my scag 48 tiger cub cutting deck is tilted by 5/8". Ive played with the rods but was told that was only for pitch. anyone else have this prob? Hey rob, just pm'd you with model number. 3 of the chains are tight but on of the front ones arent?

    Check the loose chain for wear inside the links, The screws holding the chain and the holes in the arm/deck. Check for up and down movement (play) in the upper arm where the chain mounts. Below is the adjustment procedure that will set pitch and align your height numbers back up.

    Also, Check tire pressure before checking deck level. Front 25/ Rear 12
