    I am talking about the actual blade removal, it seems the there are no locking mechanism to unscrew the bolt that are holding them. Unlike any other mowers I have where i can put one rachet on top of the bolt and one at the bottom where you can have an opposing force to unscrew them. So if you have an easy way of unscrew the bolt let me know A.S.A.P. Thanks!

    Take a piece of wood and wedge it between the blade and some point under the deck, then with your ratchet or breaker bar remove the bolt like you would in any other manor.
    If you have air tools, just zip it off.
    Hope this helps
