I have a TO20 and my brush hog deck leans to one side. I tried turning the adjustment on one of the arms,but still seams to be leaning. I don't know what I'm doing, I'm learning as I go. You guys got any ideas? Thanks, newbie

On the R/H levelling Lever, half way down the threaded part, there is a groove, this should be level with the top of the bottom half of the Rod (the part with the threads inside) This will make both rods the same length..John (UK)..

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Thanks John, I didn't know what that was called. When I get home, I will check to see if this is level with the top and bottom.

If you have any doubts about the length, just measure centre to centre of the pins top and bottom on both rods, just get them same length....if you still have problems, email me...John(UK)

The 3pt frame is loose from the deck of the rotary cutter.

The lift arm adjustment threads are stripped out, you are turning it, but it's not raising or lowering the lift arm.

One other thing to check, the bracket up by the seat, it could be stripped out, when you raise the lift, be sure that both arms are raising together. They are connected to a large shaft that is located behind and under the seat. If one of the lift arms is stripped out these two arms will not lift equally.

Just raise and lower the lift a number of times watching one item at a time and you will finally determine what is causing your problem.

Thank you all for your quick responses, I will go investigate a little closer and see if anything is stripped out.

Not quite picturing your "leans to one side" if you mean it pulls off center to either the right or left side as you mow, it might indicate the need for stabilizer arms that mount to pins under rear axle and run back to the lower 3 pt. pins on the mower.
If it is a tilt to either left or right of the entire unit and you have adjusted the lower lift arms to equal length, I don't have a thought on what would cause the arms to be out of timing.

Others on this sight have assisted with more knowledge than I.
