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 REMOVE THE BLADES


The blades are typically a 'right hand' thread and tighten against the normal blade rotation for safety reasons. This means they have a tendency to work themselves tighter during use. Try using a good pair of LEATHER gloves and hold the blade with one hand while loosening the bolt (or nut) with the other. To loosen, turn the bolt (nut) COUNTERclockwise.

If this is a push mower... REMOVE THE WIRE FROM THE SPARKPLUG FIRST !!!!!! Push mowers can start when rotating the blade by hand because it turns the engine over just as a crank or pullrope would.

Make sure to take note of the positioning of the cutting surfaces of the blade and re-install them correctly...many mowers have had their blades installed backwards by mistake.

Take extra care when re installing them as they will now be SHARP !!!!!

Replace blades on Mtd mower deck


no they are not left hand threads if nuts have molded washers you must use an impact gun. wash holds too much of blade surface and will not turn against it

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.

CUB CADET ZERO TURN Z-FORCE 3-BLADE CONFIGURATION


Under each blade is one single nut holding each blade on. It is not left-hand thread and there is nothing special about it.
Standard thread - Standard hardware - Standard tools. (If memory serves, you need a 15/16" socket to remove these.)
There is no need to index or time the blades. They cannot hit together unless something is bent or damaged on your mower deck.

Hope this helps,
Dolf-

I cant get the nuts off the blades on my cub cadet do you turn them l or r


Not sure on your particular mower but most all mowers are left hand threads so you would loosen like you are tightening normally. I hope that is clear to you. lol
