How do you remove the blades on a Sears 6HP
Remove the 5/16" allen cap screw on the end of the shaft. The knife assembly slides onto the crankshaft and is keyed with a woodruff key. Soak the shaft in pentrating oil overnight and try to slide it off or use more persuasive measures like tapping or a slide hammer. You'll see a big nut it's a LH thread so to remove it turn it CCW. The rest is straight forward. I can send you the owners manual if you provide an email address. It illustrates the process in detail.

How do I remove the shredder/mulched impeller from my Tecumseh 5hp OHH50 engine powered chipper/shredder?
tapers break easily when the taper is distorted momentarily
leave the bolt in place unscrewed about 1/8 inch
place a bearing puller under the boss and apply pressure to the head of the bolt
using to heavy hammers , place the head on one side of the boss and hit hard on the other side of the boss
this will release the taper and it will jump to the head of the bolt
remove the bolt
If there is a key in the taper as well then the problem becomes different as you may have to apply heat to the boss to distort the taper and break the rust bond on the key

ALTEC BUCKET TRUCK STABILIZER CYLInDERS WON'T RETRACT
make sure that the truck is in the ready to move configuration--
bucket properly stowed booms in etc as there may be micro switches that will not allow pressure to return from the cylinders until this is all achieved
The system has safety devices that will not allow operation until it is properly leveled or will not allow stabilizer operation until the machine has been properly made ready for travel
read your operators hand book and safety instructions
