    Just bought a new exmark metro. I went to take the blades off, and one of the spindles seems like it isn't threaded right. i had to use a wrench the enitre time to get the nut off of the spindle. and, when you kill the blade after cutting, that one spindle doesn't spin out as long as the other. Would you think that they would replace that free of charge? anyone have this problem ever?

    It could be that, during assembly, somehow the bolt or the nut got partly stripped?

    I would, since it's brand new, take it to the dealer and just ask about it, can't hurt they'll probably at least check it out for you.
