    Default County line finishing mower question

    I have a fairly new 6ft Countyline finishing mower and am having a heck of a time removing the bolts that hold on the blades. Does anyone that has one know if they are reverse threaded? They are tough either way I try to turn them.

    I scanned through it and didn't see anything. I'll try righty loosey, now that I've tightened them up real good.

    Found a King Kutter manual online, and it does indeed say left handed (reverse) thread. So anyway, I finally got them off and sharpened. Lesson learned. Along with all those warning stickers on the mower deck, another one informing you of the reverse threads would have been nice. Thanks for the reply Bladehauler.

    Just an added thought...
    I used to struggle with my RFM blades removing them...
    I purchased a very nice impact wrench...
    It works really well...
    I got tired of using a pipe and wrench...

    Yep, I was contemplating that very thing until that lightbulb came on in my brain. An impact wrench would still be a good thing to have.

    When I removed the cover over the pulleys to clean and lubricate, low and behold, I found a full blown service manual taped underneath which did indeed indicate that the bolts were reverse threaded. Why in Heavens name would you hide the service manual under there?

    Maybe so it wouldn't get lost during shipment? I really can't believe that you've owned the mower this long without removing the cover. Whenever I get a piece of equipment, new or used, I always go through it completely, just to make sure fluid levels are right, belts are tight enough, etc, before it's ever hitched to the tractor. Too many horror stories out there of people buying a new bush hog, putting it to use and finding that the store didn't fill the gear box until it locked up, etc.
    I agree that everything should be right on new equipment when you buy it, but you're dealing with people and people mess up, intentionally or not, so I always do the "trust but verify thing"

    It wasn't that long after I had bought it that I discovered this. I had taken this cover off before, but apparently didn't flip it over to see the backside of it where the manual had been taped. There was other materials that came with the mower in plain sight, why not have the most important part with it? If it had come untaped the first time I fired it up, it would have fallen right into the pulley mechanism, shredding it, most likely. I guess I should be thankful they didn't tape it under the mower deck. Other than that, it's been a great mower for the money, no complaints at all.

    I found an extra manual sent with my King Kutter bush hog while using it one day. It was cut up in the field. Apparently it had been taped to the bottom underneath the body. It had also came with one in a ziplock bag so I never thought to look for an extra manual.
    When I bought my County Line RFM at Tractor Supply the manual they gave me was from the King Kutter web site.

    If a wire wasn't shorted it wouldn't work. What you have is an intermittent open!

    Electronics is smoke and magic. If you let the smoke out of something it doesn't work anymore - the magic is getting the smoke back in.
