I've never worked on one but it should be similar to a gas driven one. There should be a bolt or screw holding the blade to the shaft. Just unbolt or unscrew it, sharpen it and reinstall. Good luck...Lee

Ihave a craftsman ridding mower model #917.289900 new belt for the deck new blads it still leaves miss cut in the middle anybody know why?


usually if its missing cut it's not rotating fast enough, or the other thing it can be the blades have not been sharpened. some companies that make blades don't sharpen them so they can be handled, it will have a leading edge and you need a sharpening stone to put a cutting edge on the blade. and the blade has to be put in the right way round. flate top cutting edge bottom.

How do you change cutting blade on a Sears Craftsman Mower?


Hi Bill:
Changing blades is pretty straightforward but does involve some Safety Hazards.
- Blades can have sharp bits - WEAR GLOVES
- Running engines can make the blade BITE - BAD
ALWAYS disconnect spark plug lead whaen changing blade.
Easy Part:
- Raise deck to maximum height
- If possible, park with front wheels on a ramp to get better access under deck.
- Use socket wrench to remove bolt from centre of blade. Here's where the gloves help as you hold the end of the blade to prevent it from turning when you apply force to remove the bolt.
TA DA! The blade will come off.
- To install new or sharpened blade (I use an angle grinder to sharpen mine) tuck it in place, install the bolt, snug it up, make sure any notches or splines line up, protect your hands (gloves) while you tighten the bolt. and you're back to cutting grass.
Cheerfuls.

Its a 21hp 46'' cut craftsman yts 3000 riding mower


Richard:

Check your blades to see if they are balanced. They should sit level when you put them on an arbor, (something pointy that you can put in the hole in the blade that will not go all the way through the hole. If the blade is heavy on one side you can grind or file the heavy end of the blade (I sharpen the blades and the heavy side gets extra sharpening to remove the excess weight on that side). Also check the spindles that you bolt the blades to when you install the blades. make sure that there is no slop in the spindles... they must not wobble. If they wobble, you didn't keep them greased. You'll have to but new spindles... they're not hard to install.

I would like to replace the mulching blades on my Sears Craftsman riding mower with regular cutting blades. I can find plenty of sources for new mulching blades, but not cutting blades. My mower is a model...


The straight blade for the 42 inch mower is 138971.They cut better and are easier to sharpen and you will need them if you use a gass catcher. If you do not want to use sears for parts you may be able to find good deals on ebay.

You might want to check this may sound silly but check to see if the blades were put on upside down.
