    Default John Deere MX 5 rotary cutter

    Does anyone know what size socket is needed to remove the blades on an MX 5? And, how hard is it? Do you actually need a torque multiplier as described in the manual?

    Can it not be loosened with an impact wrench?? I know that's what a lot of people use to get blades off with.
    Nothing could be finer than riding my JD790 in South Carolina!!
