Just curious if anyone had an operators manual for a mower deck on a 200 series. I'm interested in how exactly you set all the adjustodeck mounts up. And help would be awesome thank you

I just recently bought a JD 212 and unsure how to set the height and get the deck level.  Can you share details with me as well?

The height of cut is set by the adjustment knob between your feet. Lift the deck up with the big lever left of the dash tower, set height by rotating knob to desired height, lower deck by lowering lift lever.

Deck level is attained by using the threaded rods on the draft arms from the front of the deck to the front frame of the tractor. You want the deck pitched forward, so the blades are 1/8 lower at the front than at the back of the deck. Side to side level is by the one back deck hanger that is threaded.
