    I'm not familiar with this model. Is it like the 4000. Deck out front with 3 cutting decks?

    I'm not a qualified mechanic but I have used the toro groundmaster with the deck out from that had 3 cutting decks. If either the left or right deck will not lift there is a spring loaded mechanism that pops out sometimes and we used a hollow metal pipe to pop it back in so the wings would go up and down. If the whole cutting deck will not raise I would assume it's electrical.
