    955 mid mount mower

    955 mid mount mower

    I've never sharpened the blades...yea I know its 20 yrs old ++

    Talked with Dad as it was His..He never removed them...just used an angle grinder.

    My Question......Is/are the blade bolts Left or Right Hand threads??

    I'd like to atempt to remove and perhaps relace them but don't want to turn my working mower in to a project cuz I broke the bolts.

    Given its age and all..should I heat or Whats the protocal for removeal of blade bolts x3??

    Main thing is getting off the tractor and turning it over, so gravity will add in getting the rust remover/lubricant down the bolt threads. Lots of PB blaster or a mix of ATF and alcohol @ 50/50 then time and repeated applications for a week or so. Then a little heat on the bolt and a air gun with heavy duty socket. Should be American/threads (so righty-tighty, lefty-loosie).

    The heads on the blade bolts are quite shallow for clearance purposes. Make absolutely sure you have the proper size socket. Use a short extension so you are pushing on the breaker bar at an exact right angle to the bolt head. I find I have to keep one hand on the head of the breaker bar so it stays true on the head of the bolt.

    All of this because it is so easy to get the socket at an angle and slip off the head. Then you have a bolt head that is buggered up and your big problems begin.

    Getting the deck out from under the tractor and securely stood up or upside down is imperative. Just remember to check the oil in the gear box when you are done.

    I would use an impact with a 6 sided short impact socket. If they not been off in 20 years I am bettting the heads of the bolts are quite worn and you do not want to round them off which will probably happen with a breaker bar and socket. I think the penatrating oil is a good idea but it is going to be hard to get it where you need it but I would try it. You will want some new bolts on hand to replace them. Good Luck. Things like this unfortunately work perfectly where no worrying was required or turn into a big job. The impact will allow you not to round off the bolts and keep pressure down so the socket gets as good a bite as it can and hopeful make it simple.

    Herminatorís description is different than mine as I do not have an impact wrench. So itís hand tools for everything for me.

    An impact wrench is a tool which I believe would be one of the best investments you could personally make Stan. Especially with your condition. It's truly a game changer these cordless models now.

    I just got a new one at work, 1/2" Milwaukee with 1400 ft/lbs of torque! It also has very little if any kick felt in your hand and has adjustable torque/speed. Very impressive.

    I suppose you are right. But when we were talking about them in the past I just canít choke out $400+ for something I may use a couple times a year at best. Way too many other $400 items ahead of something like that on my priority list.

    Try $219. Milwaukee M18 impact wrench, tool only. You can find similar deals on whatever color of cordless tools you currently own. Definitely a good investment.

    I can probably get as much force with a socket and breaker bar but we’re talking 3/4 drive. Also a good way to break them off if they are stuck badly.
