    Bob-Cat has a patent on their leveling system, very easy to level by a turn of a screw.

    to hell with side to side when sit up mowers I do it front to back +or - 1/8 inch max 1/4 inch. do that and you could be fine. check your tire pressure to. 12 psi on the front and 10 psi in the back.

    The tire pressure is the first thing to check then jack the rear tires off the ground and measure the circumference. If the tires are different sizes they have probably been over inflated and stretched. These tires are unbelted and the dimensional integrity will be compromised by just a few pounds past the max (usually 20 psi) recommended pressure. Check the front tires too.

    If the tires check out ok then turn the blades fore and aft. Measure the distance from the floor to each end of the blades. There should be from 1/8" to 1/4" difference from front to rear with the front being the lowest. Do this with new blades for the most accurate measurements. Commercial mower decks rarely get out of side to side level, especially the newer units.

    If your unit is out of level side to side the leveling instructions will detail the procedure.

    I am having the same problem with a ZD 28 with the Pro 60 deck. I can get the right side at the prescribed height but the left side is low by about 1/2 inch. I took the lock nuts off and got it within 1/4 inch of the right side. It appears that it needs longer bolts to get to the prescrobed height. I have had little or no satisfaction from the dealer so I'm going to contact Kubota on this matter. It is too much money to spend on something that you can't adjust.
