    I just noticed today that my deck on my Toro ZMaster 149 is not floating level minor difference in cut height from one side of deck to the other. It seems that the chain to the left and back of the operators seat is not fully taut. When I push down on the deck the opposite corner (front ) raises up. Any help?

    Just a guess how does the chain it self look. Maybe it rounded it self out?

    i had that with mine also. measure the two adjustment rods from the front of the rod to the center of the block between the 2 jam nuts mine was off about 3/8 of an inch. just adjust till even then measure blade hieght, you may have to go up or down with both sides to get it set right.
