Blades on my Exmark won't tighten up.

    Just wondering if I could get some advice.I have a 2000
    exmark and at the end of last year I was unable to tighten
    the bolt that holds the blades on.I would grab the blade
    and try to tighten it and you could feel it slipping.

    If I had to guess I would say that you probably have some damaged threads on your blade bolt.

    Can you tell us what unit that you have? We have a few different types of spindles depending on your model.

    Thanks, Fred.

    My 36" Turf Tracer has slots on the spindle just above the blades for a 1" wrench to fit and help tighten down. Could it be you didnt realize this was there, and therefore the slipping and not tightening? Just a thought!
