    I have a spare deck for the HP that i need some parts from, CANNOT get the bolts loose to get the blades off. Tried a huge breaker bar, didn't work, rounded off one bolt. Anyone ever use impact wrenches?

    If you can get a block in there, block it in and use a large pipe on your 1/2" ratchet (don't uses a cheap ratchet) as a breaker bar. If that doesn't work use an acetylene torch to heat it up and it will come free easily.
