How do you change blades on a massey ferguson 42/40 ride on lawn mower
Pull the cutting deck off the mower, lean it against a wall so you can see the bottom of the deck. I usually use a small section of 2x4 to stop the blades from turning when trying to loosen the blade bolt. A breaker bar comes in handy as those bolts/nuts are usually put on rather tight. Be sure to pay attention to how it goes back together, take pictures if need be. Also, be sure you put the blades on right, or the grass won't cut right.

It sounds to me that you need a new mower deck drive belt, or your blades need sharpening. If the blade edges are rounded, they won't cut butter... Also, when mower is off, check mower deck drive pulleys to make sure you don't have any that are locked up or are dragging. You can check this by pulling the belt away from pulley and spinning the pulley by hand. MOWER MUST BE OFF before attempting any of these checks. You would be surprised how many people would try this with the mower running.
Hope this helps

The first thing to check is your blades. If one is bent, it will never cut even. It happens a lot hitting roots, antbeds, etc. Mulching blades will bend easier than a straight blade. It's best to take them off and lay one on top of the other to see if they're bent.
