    The mowers are made by Ariens. This is the mower with the swivel front wheels, not the cheapo made by Murray.

    What happens is that the blade adaptor (made of soft metal) comes apart in pieces. I got a (machined steel) Snapper blade adaptor and it's fine. The blade didn't come flying out, it just fell off on the ground.
