    I know this is a commercial lawncare forum, but this is the only place I could find that had anything to say about how to remove the blade from a push lawnmower. I posted this question to another thread, but it's buried as the 53rd post. I thought I'd have better luck if I started a new thread.

    I apologize for my rank amatuer status.

    How do I remove the blade from my push lawnmower? The bolt won't budge, and I'm embarrassed to say that I don't even know which way I should try to turn it.

    Turn it counterclockwise. A 1/2 inch drive ratchet or breakerbar [depending on who monkey'd it on] and a six point socket.
    you can tip the mower on its side. carb side up.

    counter clockwise.
    Do you have an impact wrench?

    Clamp or wedge a 2 x 4 scrap under the deck to keep the blade from turning and wrench it off with a large ratchet or breaker bar.

    Don't forget to disconnect the spark plug........an accidently started engine will remove fingers.
