"Put the machine in whatever hydraulic mode you would typically operate it in, for most machines that’s in a float-type position. And then, typically what we’ve seen most manufacturers recommend for a variety of reasons is lower the tool down to within a couple inches of the ground. And then get out and just start measuring across it," says Bergman. "You want to measure both laterally across it, so from right to left of the tool but also from front to back of the tool as well, we want to check the levelness there."
"If you see differences left to right, or on the wings versus on the center section, typically we’re going to adjust those by some of the linkages that connect those to the main frame. If we see differences forward to backwards, or front to rear on the machine, that can often be a coupling issue, you know, the hitch is higher than what it used to be and we need to level the machine back out front to back," he says. "It depends on the machine, but usually there’s some connection or some type of coupling that you can level the machine front to back with."
