    Alright, so I was changing out my stock blades to some new Gators and didn't seat on of the blades properly before tightening the lock nut ;) When I engaged the blades it didn't sound right so I turned off the mower to investigate. Yeppers, it is slightly bent so it needs to be replaced :dizzy: The mower I have is a John Deere EZTrak Z225 (small residential ZTR) and would maybe like to tackle this task myself to save money and to avoid the long wait at my local JD dealer (they are backed up on repairs and service). How difficult is this repair and can some "Average Joe" complete this with average tools? Thanks.....
