Thereof, which way do Blades go on Craftsman riding mower?

Unscrew the riding lawnmower cutting blade bolt with a socket wrench. Slide the socket wrench onto the end of the bolt head. Turn the bolt counter clockwise to remove the bolt from the blade spindle.

Secondly, how do you remove the blade from a Briggs and Stratton lawn mower? Use a piece of wood to deep the blade from rotating. Remove the bolt (B, Figure 21) that holds the blade. Briggs & Stratton engines that are used on walk behind lawnmowers use a right hand thread and would be loosened by turning counter-clockwise with a 9/16" wrench.

One may also ask, are Craftsman lawn mower blades reverse thread?

Most lawnmower blade nuts are reverse - threaded in order to secure the blade on the drive shaft of the engine. This ensures that the blade's rotation does not loosen the nut. However, not all blades use a reverse - threaded nut to secure them to the engine's drive shaft.

Which side of lawn mower blade goes up?

It's important that the blade's cutting edge follows the direction of rotation. The wings of the lawn mower blade will be oriented up toward the mower deck and any writing on the blade will likely be facing away from the deck. If the blade bolt comes with a washer, its concave side will be facing the blade.

When should I replace my mower blades?

You'll know that you need to sharpen your lawn mower blades when the tips of your grass are brown and ragged. When this happens, your grass becomes less capable of storing water and more susceptible to disease. Some lawn mower manuals suggest sharpening or replacing blades after every 25 hours of use.

How do you jack up a riding lawn mower with a floor jack?

Center the floor jack with the front or rear of the riding mower tractor. Roll the floor jack directly underneath the front or rear axle. Twist the floor jack handle clockwise to tighten the hydraulic valve, allowing the floor jack to be raised.

Can you tip a riding lawn mower on its side?

Placing your equipment at an angle or tipping it on its side can coat the spark plug with oil, which ruins the plug and prevents it from sparking. Tipping a mower can also allow oil to leak and clog the air filter, or mix in with the fuel.

How do you align lawn mower blades?

Pull the deck belt from around the engine pulley and slide the cutting deck out from under the mower. Turn the cutting deck over to access the blades. Put on gloves to protect your hands and turn the blades until one is pointing forward and back.

Can you sharpen a lawn mower blade without removing it?

There are few different ways to sharpen lawnmower blades, including using a bench grinder, hand file, rotary tool, or angle grinder. But, depending on the design of your mower, you might be able to sharpen the blade without removing it, which will save a considerable amount of time.

Can you sharpen blades while still on mower?

Although you can probably do an okay job sharpening them while on the mower, there is no way for you to balance them on the mower. Even a small vibration from them can really wear things out on a mower over time. Take them off and sharpen them, that's the only way you can see if the blade is balanced.
