How do you get the blade off a tractor mower?

(From: Lloyd E. Sponenburgh (lloyds@fiscalinfo.com).)

Typically, you remove the entire mowing deck, then manipulate the deck, rather than the whole mower.

Alternatively, shops often LIFT the whole tractor, and work from underneath. I built a beam-supported block and tackle affair in my barn to do just that... it's lots faster than taking the deck off a stupid Murray. Those pieces of trash require that you remove about a dozen fittings and nuts to get a deck off.

Now, my Wheel Horse, on the other hand, requires only ONE hand-released fastener, and off-she-comes!
