    I have a 2006 Lazer Z with 60" Ultra Cut and it is about half an inch off. At 3" it is cutting more like 2.5"? I leveled the deck. How can I fix the height? (Couldn't find it in the manual).

    HLM, not trying to insult you... did you check the air pressure in both rear tires?

    Just leave it the way it is and remember it's a 1/2 inch high.

    Yes the air pressure is correct. It bothers me because my guys forget sometimes and to me 1/2" is a big difference on a lot of yards.

    Thats a really hard thing to explain over the internet. It's the two nuts on the ends of the two threaded rods bars(with the big return springs). Play with them a little and you'll figure it out. Your manual would explain it the best. The chain adjustments are for the fine leveling, not for a half inch adjustment.

    those big springs are for the lift not the adjustment. to do it you need to take the deck wheels off and put 3/4" block's under the deck. and you will have to go to the exmark website and look at the manual. its there in pdf form. just follow the steps and you should be good to go. i would post it for ya but cant seem to get it to work.
