As you are looking at the blade and bolt from under the mower, if the blade is rotating counterclockwise, then the blade bolt is standard threaded and will turn counterclockwise to loosen. If the blade is turning clockwise, then the bolt is left hand threaded and will turn clockwise to loosen. John Deere produces mower decks with both setups.
Good luck!

Are the Cutting blades bolts for a John Deere LT 160 right handed thread or left handed thread?


It is typical to use right handed thread so you would turn them clockwise to install, and counterclockwise to remove. The blade rotates towards the cutting edge which is typically counterclockwise, so to remove the bolt, you unscrew it, with the handle of your wrench pulling towards the back of the blade.. These bolts can be really tight. Pull the spark plug lead or remove the ignition key so you don't get an accidental start. Wear gloves, there are sharp bits.

Which way does the bolt turn to remove the blade from a hayter harrier 41 mower


You can figure this out by checking the direction that the blade turns when it is operating and the bolt will tighten the opposite way because if it turned the same way it would loosen off when the motor was turning the blade, so almost univerdsally it will loosen clockwise and tighten counterclockwise.

How to change cutting blades on john deere Z710A mower?


you should be able to life the deck to its highest possible setting, and get a wrench to remove the blades, you'll need 27" blades. the shaft may have a star pattern as well as the blades. when you replace them, you want to make sure you remember what direction the blades were sitting when you removed them and put them back in the same way, so you dont have blade interference

I just bought an old John Deere 68 riding mower but it does not cut grass even though the blade spins when engaged. I made sure the blade was on correctly but it still doesn't cut. I noticed the pulley...


Are you sure it is the correct blade and when it is turning the sharp edge is on the leading side? A spinning blade will cut grass even if the blade is dull. Did you lower the deck to the correct level?

Why isn't the center blade on a john deere LX178


Of course with everything off, reach under the deck and turn the center blade by hand. If:
1. the blade turns by itself and nothing else moves, you need to tighten the retaining bolt more.
2. the blade, retaining bolt and drive shaft turn, check to see if the pulley above it is turning.
a. If the pulley turns freely check that the drive belt is going around it to power the blade.
b. If the blade turns with the drive shaft and the pulley doesn't, check that the pulley is still properly connected to the blade shaft. Some have a key in them that can split, others just have a bolt on top holding them tightly on the shaft.
