Hi all: The people on this forum have been helpful in the recent past, so I'm hoping that those of you who are more mechanically-inclined than I am (...which is 100% of you, I'm sure...) might be able to point me in the right direction again. My apologies is this is too basic, but I have an old 310-8. It has 3 mower blades, and I can't get any of them off to sharpen them. If I use a floor jack and a couple of jack stands, I can lay down on the garage floor but can barely get a 3/8 inch electric drill with a sharpening stone attachment properly angled against the blades. I've also put the front wheels up on plastic ramps (Rhino Ramps) which I use for changing the oil on my car, with pretty much the same result. These work OK for touching up the blades just a bit, but the blades really need a good sharpening, so I am trying to get them off in order to use a bench grinder. I have sprayed a pretty fair amount of penetrating oil on the bolt heads above and below the point where they go thru the blades. I have used the longest pipe wrench I have (18 inch). Frankly, I'm a bit concerned that the amount of leverage I'm using might pull the mower off its jack stands. In any event, the blades are still very firmly attached. Any suggestions on how to get the blades off will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
I have been noticing that the mower leaves behind streaks of uncut grass while mowing. It looks to me as if the blades need replacing/ sharpening. Does anybody still sharpen their blades or is it not cost effective enough. If they do, how do you go about sharpening it?
I just replaced the spindle bearings in my RM-367 mower deck. I have a new set of OEM mower blades, but I'm wondering if anyone has found a good way to balance these blades that do not have a round center hole in them.
