    Initially removed mine with my 20v. impact drill and have applied anti-seize ever since.
    Most people live to work.....I work to live.

    but then you got to rig something up to keep the blade from turning.
    ]if you have a compressor, get an impact like this:

    1/2 in. Heavy Duty Air Impact Wrench

    and use a 20% off coupon from here:

    Harbor Freight Tools Coupon Database - Free coupons, 25 percent off coupons, 20 percent off coupons, No Purchase Required coupons, toolbox coupons

    or try an electric impact, though they are not as powerful.

    Electric Impact Wrench - 1/2"

    So you're installing the blades with the impact? Not too good at guessing torque? The threads will eventually suffer the consequence.

    Re: Removing mower blades

    I've been using an impact to change blades for years with no ill effects on the threads. When I see it tighten down I give it another 1/4 turn and it's done. I'm on my 4th set of blades and haven't had my sd a year!

    Any idea what torque is being applied?

    Off with an impact and on with a torque wrench always. Also apply anti seize to the bolt threads as needed.

    Re: Removing mower blades

    I use an impact and put them on with torque stick. White one 120 ft pounds. I got the kit which was a little expensive but worth money. Before I got it I bought new impact and could not get wheels off my truck. With the kit I never had another problem.
