    That statement was meaning that you probably already own some cordless tools. So you already have batteries and a charger. If not....well, then yeah, you need a kit.

    As I said earlier - I use hand tools for everything.

    The only power tools I have are:

    Corded circular saw 20 years old
    Corded sawzall ($20 special)
    Corded grinder (HF special)
    Cordless 3/8 drill and 1/4 impact - 12v Craftsman. I can’t handle the cordless drills with those big heavy batteries on the end.

    Taking the deck off to be able to get good access is good advice.

    I would clean around the bolt head real good and give it a couple shots of PB Blaster.

    on the impact & good socket.

    Give it a few light shots with the impact and see if it breaks loose. Might be surprised.

    If it doesn't PB Blaster, Heat, and Patience.

    Good Luck.


    IMHO, the tap tap tap of an impact is better at freeing tight nuts/bolts than constant pressure of a wrench. Most of the bolts I have broken I was using a wrench.

    Getting the deck off is a pita but only takes 10 minutes.

    Flipping it not an issue . I have several outside hoists.

    Tools...got that one covered to Hoarder status..electric and air impacts as well as every size drive.
    So do I want to Feel it slowly twist off with a breaker bar or just pull the trigger on a impact and hope for the best??



    Now are the bolts for sure right hand thread??



    I recall working on small mowers and the blade bolts were LH, though they did thread into the crank.

    I guess I'm assuming these would be the same.

    Got the PB blaster and various other brands kroil etc.

    Getting Any to where its needed seems like dream.

    Yes - normal RH threads.

    And if I had the option it would definitely be an impact.

    But good question. I remember dearly trying to get the wheels off the left side of my old Power Wagon.

    Or was it the right side that where LH threads.....?

    When working on vintage motorcycles that have been setting for 40 or 50 years in less than ideal conditions, it helps to accurately strike the head of bolts with a heavy hammer to jar (loosen) the corrosion between the threads on the bolt and its built-in nut.

    The blades should be self-tightening as they cut grass. The bolts should loosen in the direction that they spin and tighten in the opposite direction, otherwise they would loosen while they are cutting grass. I use an anti-seize compound on the threads to make it easier to disassemble fasteners in the future.

    As I remember the blade bolts on the deck of my old JD855 were right hand. Something like 22 mm size. If you have a problem with rounded hex heads, grind the head off then remove the bolt shank. That may require only a vice grip or weld on an angle iron arm to have leverage with. The other problem will be holding the spindle while taking out the bolt.

    Regardless of how you get them off, replace all three with new bolts and a liberal amount of anti seize compound.

    This project went smoothly.

    Pulled the deck and hoisted it up in the air.

    Bolts had a large head ( 7/8th or bigger)..Eyes are to bad to read the sizes ...I just found an impact socket that fit.

    Had blades on the ground in less than a minute. Was gonna try to sharpen and thought ..hmmm
    Lets go to town . I was half hungry and partially hung over..were going to breakfast. Called JD and He said they had blades
    @ 22 each...I'll be there in a few minutes said I & away we went.

    Cleaned deck , neverseized ( Yes RH threads bolts) the bolts. checked oil in gear box. Then the fun started.

    What better time to grease the tractor than when that dam mower deck is off. Cleaned off a patch of dirt and sent my Nephew down Under. Got a grease gun with a long hose so its easy on my end. Pulled the driveline covers and all the fun stuff.
    Not a bad job it just takes a while....So my tractor is happy $69 bucks and a breakfast later. I'm curious to see how much nicer the cut is. Old blades were easily 1/2" or more meat missing as they have been ground on since it was new in 94 ish.

    Thanks for the input people...I guess I got worried for nothing
