With most small lawn tractors I've dealt with, you want to unhook the deck-blade drive belt, some have one large belt that turns the blades as well as the rear wheels, others have more than one belt.. usually you will find four brackets that suspend the entire mower deck below the lawn tractor. To locate these brackets raise the mower deck so that its not resting on the ground, then push the mower deck side to side and notice where the attaching arms are moving under mower but above the deck, once you find the four brackets, lower the deck 2 its lowest point. remove the connecting pins noting the exact hole each pin came out of, if you have not removed the belt bye now do so at this time. you may find a stubborn piece of metal preventing the belt from coming off near the larger pulley Don't bend it out of the way just remove or loosen its nut,its there 4 a reason. so now, 1 the belts off the pulley. 2. the pins or bolts have been removed from the suspending arms and the hole positions have been noted. remove any other actuating rods or levers remaining so that the mower deck can slide out from under the mower. you may have to put the front wheels on a 4x4 blocks or similar to accomplish this. once you've got the deck out carefully turn it upside down, use blocks to keep from mashing pulleys, etc. you will probably see two or three blades, remove hex head bolt w/ washer holding blade to spindle, be sure to note cutting side of blade and direction of travel. If you don't see bolts in the center of blade look for my other solution for changing blades and blade bearings.

How to fit blades correctly

Hi Stephen:
Sounds like a basic question, so will give some basic info.
- WORK SAFE - Always remove the spark plug lead before changing or working on blades on push type lawnmowers.
- ONLY REPLACE BLADES WITH SAME SIZE BLADES that have the same mounting connections.
- WEAR GLOVES - These blades are sharp, and can have nasty little pointy bits that snag skin.
- Install blades with the flat side of the cutting edge closest to the ground.
- Make sure that the correct upper and lower mounting washers are in place.
- Snug the attaching bolt in SLOWLY and make sure that any notches or gear-type teeth are properly aligned, then tighten.

Any questions?

Does the Norelco 725RL corded razor have self-sharpening blades? I understand that it uses HQ4 plus replacement blades. Are they self-sharpening?

The HQ4 blades are self-sharpening. The manufacturer also suggests changing these every 12 months.

If you require new HQ4 blades, you will find them available at See link below

Changing the 3 mower blades on a Troy-Bilt 46in

I would say yes, they all are right hand thread, and don't torque the snot out of them, just snug them up. They won't spin off in the direction they are going. I know a guy who get's out the impact wrench every time he wants to change the blades, and he has to impact them off, and then he has to impact them back on. which is fine, but you will never get them off without the impact driver. I just snug mine up. Now, I am not 100% positive about your machine, but I am sure it is the same. I doubt they would throw in one left hand threaded bolt for you to try and figure out. And don't use a wheel to sharpen your blades, get a 4 1/2 inch grinder with 80 grit paper in there, it makes it real easy to sharpen, and they last ten times longer. Hope this helps.

Changing wiper blades with a cover over blades

the cover comes with certain blades. it's there to help ice & snow from freezing to it. You can't take it off and change it. If you have trouble removing the blades, most parts stores change them free (if you buy them there)
