    Default Kodiak 6' medium duty deck mower uneven HELP!!!

    Hello All

    I'm new at the whole tractor, implement world. I have Kioti DK40SE HST w/ Kodiak 6' Med duty mower. My tractor was delivered w/ mower attached. I used it for few hours, slowly learning. I parked, removed he mower from 3 pt and parked the tractor. Few days later I reconnected ( no easy task but I figured it out) the only issue now is the mower doesn't raise/lower evenly.

    When I raise/lower the mower the left side comes up last/gets down first!! It holds evenly though, I think. I checked all connection and all pins/arms etc are even on each side....

    First guess, one of the links (generally the right one depending on how things are installed) has an adjustment for tilt. Crank it up or down to level things up.

    Only option I can see for locating something like that without a lot of hit and miss guesses or have someone look who is familiar, is to break out a tape measure and compare one side to the other to identify the source of the droop.

    A picture uploaded here might give you some results too.

    Yup. It's my guess that the vertical link is the adjustable one, and that it wasn't dogged down during mowing. Vibration and gravity caused it to "unscrew", which obviously makes it longer. If that proves not to be the case -less common but still possible - the left upper lift arm may have jumped a cog.
