    What is the best was to change blades on this mower? I have a 52" deck and was wondering is the easiest way to change the blades to just use a "kick stand" or does does the mower have a release for the deck? Just wondering... Thanks

    Jungle Jims company makes a great product called the Jungle Jack. It does a great job of lifting and holding machines in the air so blades can be changed easily.

    I use a low profile car jack.
    I lift up the front of the deck jack it up all the way and put car stands under it.
    Youll most likely need an impact gun, electric or air.
    Otherwise youll be using a pipe with a 1/2 in socket.
    You usually will need 2 people for this.
    The bolts are 15/16.
    Youll need 2 sockets or 2 wrenches or 1/1.
    That jack from jungle is like 300 and some change, not worth it.
    You can get a low profile aluminum 2ton jack from cosco for 99$
    Jack stands are about 20$ at pep boys.
    Pep boys also sells a set of jack stands that come with a jack.
    I would recommend the cosco aluminum, Its better quality and 1/2 the wieght of the pep boys one.
