How to Replace or Sharpen a Riding Lawn Mower Blade

If the blade on your mower is dull or worn it means you are not cutting your grass, you are tearing it. A sharp blade helps keep your grass clean and help keep it green. To replace the blade you will need: a wrench, socket wrench, blade sharpener and balancer, a new blade, new mower belts, a putty knife and a brush. To begin, brush off any loose grass clippings and disconnect the battery. Disconnect the black connector first followed by the red. Remove the mower deck and blade using a socket wrench. If the blades appear to be notched and have noticeable rivets, you may need to replace the blade. However, if the notches are not too noticeable use a blade sharpener and balancer to repair. It is also critical to see if the belts need replaced as well. Once the blades and belts have been replaced or sharpened, attach the mower deck, reconnect the battery and you are ready to mow a healthy lawn.
