On blad removal the nut goes opposite to tighten, lefty tighty, righty loosen. Put a metal wrench or rod in between the blade and the guard to keep the blade from moving.

To change the blade which way does the nut turn to get it off? Clock wise or counter clock wise?


Most weed eaters are opposite to conventional thread. So they are CLOCKWISE to take off

Replace blade


Usually, but not always, they turn clockwise so that the rotation does not unscrew the lock bolt or nut. If the lock bolt or nut is reverse thread, it probably turns counter-clockwise.

Consider including more details in your questions, it makes answering them specifically, easier.

Trying to replace the blade on my Craftsman edger; the nut holding the blade won't budge - now I'm not sure which way to turn it to get the blade off!! Clockwise? Counter-clockwise? Thanks. Larry...


Take a little break and spray the shaft where the nut is on it with some PB Blaster or Liquid Wrench penetrating oil. Let it soak tonight and turn it off counter-clockwise tomorrow. If you can fit a good sized box wrench on in, turn the wrench down towards the ground and give it a few good whacks with a rubber mallet or hammer. Try not to strip the head of the locking nut.

Does the bolt on the blade come off counterclockwise or clockwise.


If you are facing the blade from where the bolt is, and the blade's normal operation is to turn counter-clockwise, then the bolt will loosen counter-clockwise. This is universally true for any blade which is held on by a center bolt (table saws, grinders, etc.) This is because the motor is turning the shaft counter-clockwise, and the resistance against the blade as it does it's work is clockwise - thus tightening the blade rather than loosening it. If the blade normally turns clockwise, then the bolt will loosen clockwise.

Can not remove the old blade


1. Unplug the saw.
2. Locate the blade lock button used to lock the motor shaft when changing a blade. For your saw, this button is usually located on the left side of the blade guard somewhere around the motor housing.
3. Push the button while rotating the blade until the button engages and the blade will no longer turn.
4. Use the wrench that came with the saw (or another wrench) to loosen and remove the blade bolt. For your saw the bolt should have standard right hand threads which means you loosen the bolt by turning it counter clock-wise.
5. Remove the old blade and replace it with a new blade of the same mounting type. Some blades have a round through hole and some blades have a diamond through hole.
6. Re-install the blade bolt and tighten clock-wise while holding the blade lock button down.

Trying to change the blades on a yard machines MTD lawn tractor,bolts wont budge,do you turn clockwise or counter clockwise liken I have been trying to do to loosten the nets.


They turn off counter clockwise. Sometimes due to the heat they are subjected to, you may need to heat around them with a propane torch before trying to loosen them, or take it somewhere with an impact gun to take them off. Hope this helps...

Trouble un-screwing edger blade bolt


It may have left handed threads and needs to be turned clockwise to unscrew. As for sharpening an edger blade...it won't cut any differently. That short blade, traveling that fast and rubbing against concrete is going to do it's job, sharpened or not.
