How do I adjust my Troy Bilt deck?

Answer

Using a wrench, change the side-to-side height of the cutting deck by turning the adjustment gear immediately behind the loosened hex-head screw that was previously loosened. Rotate the gear in a clockwise direction to raise the left side of the cutting deck, or in a counterclockwise direction to lower the left side of the cutting deck.

This occurs when the mower deck “swings/bounces” up and down or tips to the left or right.
