Sounds like you may have sheared the key, which is located under the flywheel. If you are trying to remove the bolt that holds the blade make sure to disconnect the spark plug first. When I have had a stubborn blade, I try and find someone to hold the blade while I either use a good quality wrench or if need be a good vise grip. You can always take the bolt somewhere and find a replacement if you mess it up.

While pressing down the control bar to start the mower, the cable is free to move but why doesn't the end near the motor move?


If the cable is not moving then it may be broken. If the lever that releases the blade brake won't move then the brake mechanism is seized and you will have to open it up and free up that mechanism. Simply spraying WD40 won't usually fix that. WD40 isn't the best solvent in this case since WD stands for Water Displacement, it was designed to keep things dry. Something like PB Blaster or Kroil is best.

WHY WILL MY BLADE NOT WORK ON MY HUSQVARNA RIDE MOWER AFTER HITTING METAL BAR


Sounds like the large nut on top of the spindle may have loosened up or the splines on the pulley are chewed up. Turn the blade and try to hold the pulley on top. If the blade turns and the pulley doesnt, its one of the two things I just described.

Flymo tines


What are you referring to as tines, it sounds like you are working on a roto-tiller. I will need more info as well. Model# Unit type-ie. lawnmower. Are talking about the blades? If so the there is a large nut that bolts the blade to the lawnmower. Remove bolt by holding blade with gloved hand and long breaker bar. You can strike the breaker bar with a three pound hand sledge to break it loose. Replace or sharpen blade as necessary. Apply grease or never-seize ti threads on crankshaft, spin on the bolt and tighten with long breaker bar. Good luck!!!!! If this is a tiller, then let us know, ok?

How do I repair height adjustment on a CMM1200?


The front wheels link to the height adjustment controlled at the right rear wheel. The spring loaded link arm attaches to a pin on the height adjustment control. The link arm has come off the pin.

Tools: Long shaft bladed screwdriver and a pry bar.

Adjust the rear height adjustment so the second to last notch is engaged.

Position yourself with one knee on the front deck. This will allow you to control the height of the front and the back-n-forth movement of the link arm.

Position the pry bar with the short "L" section upwards, under the lawnmower. This will allow you to control the side-to-side position of the link arm.

Insert the screwdriver from the rear of the lawnmower. The rear wheel axle can be used for leverage This will allow you to control the up-and-down position of the control arm.

A little perseverance and you will be able to position the link arm back on the pin. It may be useful to remove the plastic cover of the lawnmower to allow a better view of the mechanism and link arm

hi there nchernuka

have you checked that the engine to chassis bolts are still tight and the mounts are ok,

have you checked that you havn't bent the pto shaft ( this will be evident if you remove the blade carrier and blades, then the plug and pull the gine over - check wobble ), check that blade carrier is in good condition and the pto woodruff key is ok and the carrier centre pto bolt is tight

check that anything that is under the mower body is still tightly attached and is not getting swung into the path off the blades - ie catcher tounge - metal body brackets etc

i would also suggest you check the feather timming key in the flywheel too especially if it kicks back when you try to start it

cheers have a look

hope it helps pauly46

Lawm mower blade adapter removal


I use a two jaw puller to take them off. Screw the blade bolt partially back in the hole so not to damage the threads, hook jaws on each side and they always come off. Penetrating oil could help.
