With any circular saw, table saw, metal cut off saw, mitre saw etc the nut always tightens against the direction of rotation and loosens the opposite way

What would cause my walker zero turn mower right blade to fall off of become loose after tightening the nut about every 5 minutes while mowing?


check to see if that side is supposed to have a left hand nut on the correct spindle
are you using the dish shaped washer under the nut
are you using a spring washer or nyloc nut

Have difficulty removing mower blades. find it impossible to remove the nut. is it left or right hand thread ?


Hi,
The threads are right hand....
wedge a block of wood into the blade to hold it
then you can really push on the nut...
also make sure you have a good fitting socket wrench
add a pipe on the handle for more leverage...
you also can heat the nut to red hot and then let it cool
which will also help to loosen it...

How do I change a brush? I can't get the axle locked to get the nut off. Can you help me?


Remember if you are trying to change the left side it is a reverse thread nut. You would turn it clockwise to loosen. IF it is very tight, put a wrench on both sides. IF the right side comes loose, remove brush/grinding wheel, and re-install nut, with an extra nut locked to the first one, the put a wrench on both sides again.

Is the locking nut on the saw blade left or right hand thread?


Almost always it's standard right hand thread. If your problem is that it's stuck, spray some WD-40 were the blade and the head of the nut meet and tap the blade with a piece of wood. This causes a slight vibration and allows the WD-40 to work under the head and onto the threads.

How do I change the blade on a dewalt compound (12 in) miter saw?


With the saw unplugged - The blade needs to be locked in place so it will not turn when you put a wrench on the nut located on the left side of the blade that holds the blade on. This is done with a locking pin on the right side of the blade. Push the pin in and rotate the blade by hand until the pin locks into the blade and prevents it from moving. With the pin pushed in put a wrench on the large nut on the left side of the blade and turn it. This may be reversed threaded, so you may have to turn the nut clockwise in order to loosen it. When tightening the nut after replacing the blade, you will have to once again lock the blade with the same pin.
Perhaps this video will help you locate the locking pin.

How do i remove the blade from the saw


Make sure this unit is NOT plugged in. The blade needs to be in a lock position to loosen the blade nut. Most units have a safety pin that engages into the revolving portion. Once you locate this pin, press it in then SLOWLY rotate the blade by hand until you feel it engage. At this point the blade will no longer rotate. Keeping the blade locked, use your wrench and place it around the center nut and turn CLOCKWISE. The thread is left handed, so when startup the unit, the blade nut continuously tightens up.

Are the nuts holding on the blades reverse threaded?


If a blade, when viewed from above, rotates clockwise, it will have right-handed threads. This is because the shaft is turning to the right, and the resistance imparted on the blade will tend to tighten a right-handed fastener. If a blade rotates counter-clockwise it will have a left-handed fastener. I don't know this mower, but this is a universal thing.
