I took the blade off of my b&D electric mower, but I cannot figure out how to lock the shaft to get the blade nut tight. Any ideas?

    i tried wedging the 2x4 in place but i could not get the lockwasher to slide into place. the blade axel would not stay far enough out for it to lock the axel while i turned the nut

    I have a similar problem, but I'm trying to get the blade *off* so I can replace it and the fan and the plastic blade insulator. The instruction manual says to use a 2x4 to keep the blade from turing. Well it keeps the blade from turning, but the shaft turns freely even when the blade is held in place with the 2x4. So the question is, how do I lock the shaft to loosen or tighten the nut when the blade does not hold the shaft like it's apparently supposed to do?

I'm not sure, but I think the little black plastic thing that holds your blade in place is damaged, I am having a similar problem where the shaft is spinning and not catching the blade. Now trying to replace that part the shaft was spinning with the nut I was trying to replace. I finally got it off by using a vice grip to hold the square metal and damaged plastic part in place while turning the nut. However now I am having a hell of a time finding the replacemet part that says right on it "replace if damaged"

    Found the part, it's called an insulator. you can find it at sears, I figured out exactly which part I needed for my model from the Black and Decker website. the one for my lawn hog mm875 is 241381-01

After you install the fan the next step is to install blade then plastic spacer either orange or black spacer then the metal washer and the nut. nut will fit the 2 flat side of the shaft hold it while tightining the nut.

I have a black and decker lawn hog mower with a 19 inch cut that i am trying to change out the blade. My problem is i cant get the mounting nut off becausethe shaft keeps turning. I have tried everything,...

are you turning nut the right way ! on a lot of mowers, the nut turns off the opposite way the blade turns, to keep it tight. good-day ! Loosen the nut in the center of the blade with a wrench by turning the nut counterclockwise.

Shaft turns while trying to remove blade on B&D MM875 elec. mower

Here's the scoop on the MM875: it has a plastic piece called a "blade insulator" (part # 241381-01) that "locks" the shaft to the blade, so that you can remove the nut by stopping or blocking the blade. If it has been damaged or stripped out, then stopping the blade won't do anything. However, the metal spacer directly under the nut IS still locked to the shaft (because of its shape), so you can use a pipe wrench or something to hold that in place and unscrew the nut. You might even be able to get someone in a home improvement store to do this for you. But you will still need to replace the insulator, which is only a few dollars.

My black and decker lawn hog is vibrating like crazy and then when i push it through the lawn it wants to die out

The symptoms are typical of an unbalanced blade. There is either very uneven wear or you hit a rock or something stationary and it bent your blade. It could be build-up on the blade but it would have to be huge to throw everything off balance.

I need to get the blade of the lawn mower sharpened.Any tips on how to disconnect the blade fropm the lawn mower?

There is a jig that you can buy that makes this job SO much eaiser. It is a universal jig that clamps onto the deck and keeps the blade from spinning so you can use a ratchet to remove the nut holding the blade on. One name brand is called a "Blade Hog". You should be able to find one of these at one of the bog box hardware stores.

Hope this helps,
