Toro Z Master - Cut Off Spindle Lip
I have a 60" Z Master with a 30hp motor.
I purchased a new set of gator g6 blades, which are 3" wide. However, when I go to change the blades, I see the spindles have a lip on the bottom that allows it to only fit 2.5" blades. This is the first time i've run across this. Picture below to show what the spindle lip looks like.
My question - Would it cause any issues if I grind/cut this lip off to fit the 3" blades? It seems many other mowers don't have this, and the blades mount to the spindle with no issue.

Re: Toro Z Master - Cut Off Spindle Lip
If you cut off that lip the blades will spin on their own, as the bolt and washer is not designed the tightened enough to properly attach the blades to the spindle. Extremely dangerous.This is only my opinion, and many will say it ain't worth a darn, as I'm only a retired grease monkey instructor and not a professional mechanic. Use what I post at your own risk as you know teachers only know book knowledge.
