    Go drop some $$ and get an impact wrench. You can thank me later. :)

    For the most part yes. Try putting some bolt anti sieze on the threads when you put your blades back on. Make sure you do not over tighten. Avoid hitting thing's when mowing, on most mowers this will tighten the blades as well. Finally start working out :)
    Good luck

    impacts are nice too.

    This is one good reason why I like to swap for fresh blades every single day,
    keeps them bolts from getting but so tight, too.

    hehehe
