Yard Machine riding mower blade not coming off

I have a 38" Yard Machine riding mower. I have one blade removed and trying to remove the other. It's not coming off and I'm stripping the nut. Do they each screw on/off the same direction or are there reverse threads on one of them?

They do come off in the same direction. Spray penetrating oil or WD-40 liberally all over it and let it soak for a while, Get a pipe wrench (if you're already destroying the shoulders on the nut anyway) and work it close until the nut is a good halfway into the jaws. Make sure you have a good block of wood to keep the blade from spinning
and apply force. If you cannot get enough pull on the pipe wrench, find a section of pipe to make a "cheater bar" slipping it over the end of the handle and down a good 6 inches, and extend it out further. It will definitely come off.

I dont know the model you have but most do. Reason for this is when the blades turn they dont loosen them selfs.

I suggest that you should remove deck, turn upside down and place straight edge or tight string line over blades from outer edges of deck frame. Use the guide strips to get even measurement. Rotate blades and measure distance from straight edge to tips at both sides. they should be the same. If there is difference from one side to the other, either the blades are bent, or if each blade is same at each end but not aligned in centre (difference in height) then the spindles need packing to make them even. Check that bearings are not loose. If you do not understand this best to take it to service centre.

Can I replace the blades on my 38in MTD/Yard Machine ride on without removing the deck? ie. from underneath.


If its in good condition you might be able to but be careful so mower doesn't fall on you. I've used my car ramps and backed the mower up the ramp and was able to do it safely. If you have any difficulty removing the blades, then I'd take the deck off. It really isn't that hard to remove the deck.

Riding mower will barely move


Sounds like it time for a tuneup. Air filter changed, Spark plugs replace and oil changed, plus sharpen the blades while you are at it.

It's fun to ride around the yard on the mower, watching scrubby grass (and weeds) turn into trimmed lawn. However, when the grass looks as bad after you mow as it did before, or the mower doesn't want to start, riding mowers aren't as much fun. That's when it's time to put on your Fix-It Club hat and have some more fun.

A riding lawn mower is a gas-powered machine for cutting grass. The engine turns a rotating blade that cuts the top off the grass blades to a specified height. The operator sits atop the mower on a tractor-type seat with speed and height controls nearby. Riding mowers also can be used to pull small utility carts for other yard jobs.

To remove the mower deck:
  1. Make sure that the parking brake is locked.
  2. Place scrap lumber under the front and rear of the deck.
  3. Use the deck lever to lower the deck.
  4. Remove attachments from the deck.
  5. Remove the blade drive belt from the front pulley.
  6. Remove the front and rear deck fasteners, following instructions in your owner's manual.
  7. Use the deck lever to raise the deck.
  8. Remove the scrap lumber.
  9. Remove the deck from under the mower.
To adjust the drive belt:
  1. Remove the belt from the large idler pulley.
  2. Remove the belt from the adjustable idler pulley.
  3. Carefully remove the spring-loaded large idler pulley.
  4. Loosen the adjustable idler pulley and move it slightly toward the rear of the mower to tighten it[md]or move it toward the front to loosen it—and retighten the pulley.
  5. Replace the belt.
  6. Check belt tension and readjust as needed.
