    Today I decided for the first time to go ahead and take the blades off my Scag 48 tiger cub. Well things did not go well at all. The only blade I could get off was the middle one. The two outer blades wouldn't even budge first by hand and then by a impact wrench. It's the most insane thing ever. Any ideas other then taking it to the local shop?

    put a ratchet on it then get someone to engage the pto lmao. we had this problem with my zd21, i just soaked the bolts down with some penetrating lubricant and then it came right off with the impact gun afterwards. are you using a 3/8s or 1/2" impact?

    Ok i might be confused but what do you guys mean by a long breaking bar like a long pipe off the wrench? I believe its a 1/2"
