If it looks like a bolt holding the blade on then you'll have to put a wrench on the nut on top of the pulley top side of deck and use an impact or breaker bar on the bolt were the blade is. When putting the blades back on when the bolt bottoms out just tighten up on the nut a little more (with impact) or as much as you can (with breaker bar) also wedge a block of wood in the blade (blade turning counter clockwise to remove- clockwise to tighten) just in case the blade tries to turn on you. To sharpen put the blade in a vise and use a hand grinder and basically follow how it looks keeping the same pitch that is there and the cutting edge to look kinda like the edge of a knife but don't sharpen the back side of the blade just try to clean up any burrs on the back edge by useing a wire wheel on a bench grinder.Also while sharpening don't push to hard or stay in one spot so that you don't leave bluing on the blade (it cuases week spotson the cutting edge)

Husqvarna rz46 23 after 50hrs right blade is not cutting clean. air in tires, leveled, adjusted blade pitch & cleaned air induction holes, sharpened blades, too Could it be loose belt/bearing issue?

Hi Alan:
You're the best person to answer those questions.
With the motor OFF, mower engage OFF, and gloves on, try to wiggle the blade tip up and down. If there is slack you'll be able to find the source. I broke the spindle housing on mine. An easy remove and replace, but it sure messed up the cut angle.

You can use a block of wood and I even locked mine with a pair of vice grips or if there is room a pipe wrench. It would help to take it completely off and squirt some oil on the threads and start over then when you sharpen the blades they will be easy to take off later. I would sharpen the blades before you do this as well.

I too have had that same problem. I found that "old" blades when repeatidly sharpened and worn will cause the same problem, also aftermarket blades instead of original manufactures recommended blades may not be dimensionally correct, too short. I have had to go back to using original blades to correct the problem.
This should work for you.
Good luck.

Hi There The cutting deck is not cutting properly, is worn out and needs replaced

Have you sharpened the blades? They must be sharpened regularly.
Also, the deck should be level left to right and be slightly lower in the front of the mower.
Ensure that the blade is installed with the sharp edge closer to the ground when installed on the mower.

Ajusting mower deck on husqvarva lawntractor been trying to make it level,has two cutting blades and this mower is not very old bought it last summer,

I think the two bladed units are 42" and down in size. The 48" are 3 bladed units. There are instructions in the manual for leveling the cut. If you do not have a manual, look on line for a manual, google it. First step is to get the mower sitting on a level piece of concrete. That way you know which corner needs to be raised or lowered. Then make sure your blades are mounted correctly. Usually you can see the adjusters, threaded bolts and nuts, or pins. Usually the deck comes level and gets **** up by someone taking the deck off to swap or sharpen blades.

Does not give a short enough cut

Have you always had this problem?
Have you had the blades off to sharpen?
Could the blades have been mistakenly put on upside down ?
The turned up piece goes toward the deck
Check your deck hangers to be sure they are free and not binding anywhere and to be sure they are dropping as far as they can go in the lowest deck setting.
your deck should move up and down evenly as you lower and raise it.
Unless spacers are an option for this cause i wouldnt use them.
Check the tire pressure 14 psi front 10psi rear .

hope some of this helps for you
