    I'm about to change the blades on my 52" Lesco.

    Question 1) Can someone describe the proper method to removing the old baldes & installing the new blades? Do I need some sort of Block, or something to trap the blade from spinning while I tighten it?

    Question 2) Does anyone know what size socket I should use to remove the blades on my Lesco 52" Hydro? 5/8" ? 15mm? ?? ie) What tools are necessary to remove the blades ?-- without using an impact wrench.

    I use a 1/2" ratchet with a 15/16" socket, and a 15/16" box end wrench.

    I use the wrench on the nut on top. On the bolt head on the bottom I use the ratchet with a 4" extension and a piece of pipe on the ratchet handle.

    To keep the wrench from turning I let the wrench hit the belt cover support.

    dude... if you dont have an air compressor just buy a 18 or 24 volt cordless impact wrench. youll thank me. they come off in a few seconds.

    i use a milwuakee 18v 240 ft/lb was about $300 but i use it for all kinds of crap.
