SOURCE: What is the difference in a regular blade and a mulching blade?

A regular blade has a straight cutting edge, a mulching blade is bent to have a high and low cutting edge. Even if you have a mulching blade on, if the grass is too high or wet or you're cutting too low, it won't do a good job and may require a second pass.Raising your cutting height can help. Hope this helps. Dwain

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

The part your looking for is called the BLADE ADAPTER. The part number should be: 753-0588

These are available at most any lawnmower repair / parts store. If you walk in woith what is left of your old one they can sell you an exact replacement. I am kind of old school when it comes to blade adapters. I always match old with the new before I buy them. I have been burned too many times from on line sites mainly with blade adapters. Most anything else available on the net is fine.

Here is a whole page of adapters:

Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: hi the shaft is bent in my mower, can i repair

taking the engine apart is easier than it sounds on a small engine. You can probably find your shaft pretty cheap on Ebay or even ordering a new one from Briggs and Strattong would be less than a new mower. You are probably looking at a total of about fifteen bolts to be turned to change the cranshaft. Most of the technical data, like torque specs is available online. Good luck.

Im trying to remove a quantum 35 from my push mower and cant figure out how to remove the part that holds the blade


if you have removed the bolt that holds the hub on then you will need a puller to pull the hub of the end of the shaft
They tend to rust on and you may need the assistance of an oxy torch to heat the hub of to break the rust seal

How do I remove the wheels of a Ryobi Push Lawnmower model Pm400 as the blade has stopped rotating and I need to locate the problem


i think on this model the blade is driven by a friction clutch powered by the forward pushing of wheels , the clutches are inside the hub , the wheels are held on by small horseshoe clips under the dust caps on center of wheels (they pop off) , shafts are keyed to wheel , ive done this before because ive got there lawn sweeper and it works allmost the same way

Poulan self propelled 22in blade hit a rock broke tip of blade starts then stalls


Did you bend the crankshaft. To check this out remove spark plug wire and tip mower on it's side and turn blade by hand and watch the shaft the blade is fastened on to. There should be no wiggle motion what so ever and if there is it may be bent causing the engine to not operate properly.

I NEED TO KNOW HOW THE BLADES GO ON A 21' SELF PROPELLED MOWER THAT IS A MULCHER


Most lawnmower blades simply attach with a bolt through the blade which bolts into the bottom of the crank shaft. The blades usually have a curve at the end of the blade, and this curve would point up when properly installed. If you post the model number of the machine, I can probably point you to a schematic which will show exactly how your blade mounts.

The pull start cord will only move about 3-4 inches and then it stops and then cord stops, Troy built- Briggs/Statton 21 inch self-propel lawnmower.


The mower's drive shaft may need to be lubricated. If you turn the mower over and try to move the blade by hand (with the mower off, of course) does it move, or is it hard to move? If it's hard to move or it won't move at all, lubricate the shaft by squirting some WD-40, 3-In-1, or other lubricating oil onto the drive shaft where it meets the chassis of the mower. Squirt enough oil to cover the circumference of the drive shaft, then try to spin the blade again. It should at least spin a little bit now. Squirt some more oil and spin the blade again, until the blade spins easily. Then turn the mower back over and try to pull the start cord -- it should pull normally now.

How to correctly replace blade adapter


1) Put a little anti-seize on the engine shaft where the adapter goes.
This will make it easier to remove should you need to in the future

2) Align the built-in key with the key slot on the engine shaft.
Slide the blade adapter on as far as it will go.

3) Put the blade on the alignment hub of the adapter (the star).
Make sure that you have the blade on properly (Angled side of
the cutting surface toward the bottom of the engine)

4) Install the bolt and torque to 60 ft lbs

I don't think that you received a faulty part. From what you described above, you had it installed correctly just not tight enough
I used to see these all the time when I had my shop and it was due to not having enough torque on the blade bolt. The bolt will vibrate loose in no time if not tightened enough.

Hope this helps you!
