Question about Garden

Open Question

I need to replace the deflector on my Mountfield Princess 14 electric lawn mower ... but not certain how to do it. Do I need to take the red top casing off, and if so what tool do I need to get the bolts off. They look like 1/4" (across the flats) hexagonal bolts, but an ordinary spanner won't do it as the bolts are inset into the casing. Also the handle will prevent any tool longer than 3" from getting onto the bolt in the first place.

SOURCE: Cant remove blade on lawn mower

Follow directions. See if this works;

Blade Maintenance
�� Warning! Switch off, remove the isolator
key, battery and grassbox before adjusting
or cleaning.
�� Always wear gardening gloves when handling
or working near the sharp blades.
Turn the machine on its right side and inspect
the blade; if blunt or damaged, replace.
Use the following procedure to remove and replace
the blade:
Insert a screwdriver into hole 26 to lock the
drive. Hold the blade 30 using gardening gloves
(not provided) and use a spanner (not provided)
to remove the blade bolt 29, blade washer 28
and blade 30.
Fit the blade 30, blade washer 28 and the blade
bolt 29. Ensure that the blade is the correct way
up (so that this symbol can be seen located
as in figure I) and tighten the bolt 29 firmly.
Ensure the screwdriver is removed before attempting
to turn the machine on.

If this procedure does not work then try the following;

It is not uncommon for the blade bolt to become seized onto the shaft due to all the gunk and moisture on the underside of the deck. Try to soak the bolt several times over with penetrating oil ( WD 40, PB Blaster, etc). Spray the bolt head, the top of the blade where it contacts the shaft, etc. Do this several times and let the penetrating oil soak in. Hit the bolt head gently several times with a hammer to loosen up the corrosion. Then try to remove the bolt per directions.
Hope this helps, if so Please rate, Thanks, and Good Luck!

SOURCE: how do i replace blade on mountfield princess lawn

It should be a standard thread. You may need to put a shop rag into the spark plug hole to make sure the engine does not turn while you are trying to remove the blade.

Replacement blade for castelgarden C390 lawnmower


What Geographic location please?

UK:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mountfield-Castel-Garden-EL390-R-C390-K390-Mower-blade-/280561700508

The blades on most sites are listed under Mountfield / Castel / Lawn King
There are 41cm and 37cm blades listed as fitting this mower. Seems odd that there is a 4 cm difference for the same mower.

As best I can tell this takes a 15 inch blade PN: 81004117/1 (
