    I was changing my blades today and 2 of em came off real easy... the other one I can't get off... When I put a wrench on both sides it turns, but the gold bolt that goes through the pulley and all that starts to turn. The blade bolt usually comes off but it aint werkin.. any suggestions maybe I should try it with air tools????

    If you dont have an impact handy you have to stop the top pulley from turning. some have holes/spokes you can cram a sturdy screwdriver thru. If your still out of luck remove the belt and try a strap wrench.

    I had one stuck the other day I used the cutting torch and heated it up a little. It worked fine just don't heat if for very long. Actually I did two of them like that.

    When you get that bolt off do not put bk on till you use some anti-seize from local automotive store. Will save you some time. I have to use on the non-discharge side or I can really fight the bolt and I use 1/2" impacts. Good Luck!!!
