 HELP! Cannot get the blades off my finish mower!

Help! I have a 5' King Kutter finish mower(3 blades) and cannot get them off to sharpen them. I put a breaker bar on the bolt and hold the blade and the pulley turns with the bolt without the blade. I cannot seem to find a way to hold the pulley. What am I doing wrong? Any easy way???

Try placing or wedging a length of 2 x 4 between the blade and a strong structural part on an available edge of the deck. Do this for each blade. You may have to do the same thing with the block on the opposite side when tightening after replacing the blades. If you use an air compressor of sufficient capacity driving an impact socket wrench the wooden block will generally not be required. In any case, Be Careful.

an air operated impact wrench will spin the nut without turning the entire blade if you don't have one, a tire shop will probably be your best bet

 get an air compressor and a 1/2" impact wrench

there are two ways to do the job, air powered tools are very usefull and will do the job with minimum sweat, take it from me i have done this job for 13yrs on both a bolens 17hp tractor and my NH 1520. the other option is to use a set of car ramps and sharpen the blades on the tractor without removing them, i have not tried this, just heard of it.use it at your own risk.the air compressor and impact wrench are the easiest, and you can balance the blades when you have them off, i use anti-sieze compound on the bolts when i put them back on, they come off much eisier the next time.good luckal

If you don't have easy access to air tools give the bolts a good shot of WD-40.Then go out and buy a set of vise grips which have a chain attachment for gripping pipe (unless you already have a set).By the time you get back the WD-40has soaked in. Simply attach the "chain vise grips" on the pulley and with a good socket wrench the bolt should come off. I would strongly recommend wearinga good pair of leather gloves while doing any work on your mower deck.

After struggling with this myself, I bought an inexpensive impact wrench JUST for this application. You don't need a high end ingersoll - Northern carries one with their name for about $35 and a set of no-name sockets for about $18. You will probably find, as I did, that once you have this set up you start finding plenty of other uses for it.

Had the same problem with my 6 ft. Woods mower. Holding the blades with a piece of wood after a generous dose of pentrating oil worked. After the blades were sharpened I used heavy grease on the bolt threads before re-installing. This made it a lot easier the next time.
