    Don't forget the board stretcher if you're going to use a 2X4.

    Good vibrations?

    Its either a 3/4 or 15/16 bolt that threads into the bottom of the spindle bolt. You need to remove it from the bottom of the deck. Do not try to remove the longer bolt that runs through the spindle and holds the spindle on top.

    You will need a socket, socket wrench, breaker bar, and block of wood if you are doing it by hand. Use the block of wood to keep the blade from rotating while you loosen.

    If you have a impact just hold the end of the blade and it will come right off.

    I think the OP was happy when somebody told him he can get under the deck by driving halfway up the ramp edge.

    I hope he has sharp blades on there by now.
