    My friend has a 2 year old 757 for his home lawn. He hasn't changed (sharpened) the blades yet. What size is the bolt that holds the blades on? thanks

    should be 15/16, I think most are the same. I know my friends Dixies and my 727a are the same.

    Yep, its a 15/16. If you friend has not had the blades off in that long better get you a good piece of wood chock, a long piece of pipe for leverage and a strong ratchet. I sharpen mine everyday and they are still tuff to get off sometimes. If I go a a week you better have the strength of super man to get them off!
