How to keep a nice green lawn.

I find it is wise to sharpen the lawn tractor or even the lawn mower blades at least every three weeks depending the hours your unit has run. You will find the grass looks better being cut with sharp blades .Dull blades tears the grass and your lawn will bruise and turn yellow as well

How do i replace a blade that had fallen off. 42 inch tractor. The main problem is how to get underneath the tractor?

To replace blades, belts, sharpen blades, etc. one must remove what is called the cutting deck from the tractor.
Once the deck is off the tractor, pull it out, turn it over and you can work on the blades.

Hi, you might want to pull the blades off and check the blades and adapters for cracks or breakage or wear. if not the spindle assemblies could have the excessive wear to them. You did not say how old the unit was so hope this helps
