I just got a 18418 38" mower deck and got it mounted on my 1000. I'm wondering does it ride on the gauge wheels so it can float or does it hang from the tractor frame using the lift lever to control the height? Thanks.

When the deck is raised all the way up for transport the wheels ride up in the air.

When you are down to cutting height it will run on the deck wheels, there are 3 adjustment slots for wheel height.


With the Roller wheels added to the later series decks they were less prone to scalping than the early ones with no rollers when you went on uneven ground.
