    Posted: 29 Mar 2012 at 7:52pm
I'm having a heck of a time getting the bolts loose that hold on the blades of a Woods L59 belly mower. Are they reverse or regular thread?
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to break them loose without ruining them, such as a torch?
Thanks.

They are left hand, or as you call them reverse threads.

I had a mower that had stuck nut on the blade, we heated it carfully with a torch and it broke loose.

A six point socket will be your friend. Yes left hand threads.  Oh yes and a good impact wrench to put the six point socket on.

Put a block of wood between the blade tip and the front shield. That is how I do it.Smile

After you get them loose and before re-installing use never seize on the threads.

If it is an L59, that L stands for left handed because the blades turn counter clockwise as you look down on the deck and it will have left handed threads. I do like Dick suggests, a 6  point impact socket and all ya gotta do is bump the trigger a couple times to remove the blade.

I put a block of wood (4x4), also, and a breaker bar.  Fortunately I've never had to pull out the impact tools.  And like Ken suggested, some type of anti-sieze is helpful.
