A:

Because of the way the blades are bolted onto the shaft I don't believe WD-40 is going to be of much use. You really need an impact wrench to get them off. If you do not have one or do not have an air compressor to power it, you can very likely rent an electric one for pretty cheap at your local auto parts store.

Because of the way the blades are welded together it's pretty hard to sharpen them with a bench grinder and you'd be there all day working with a file to sharpen them. If you have an angle grinder, that would work best for this situation. You may consider taking them to a local lawn mower shop to have the blades sharpened. If you're determined to sharpen them yourself just make sure to keep the same angle of the cutting surface. If you file/grind it down at more of an angle it will not cut efficiently and if you get the angle less than what it is then it will wear the cutting edge down too fast.

I did look around to see if I could find a replacement blade for this and just didn't have any luck. That's something else a local shop may be able to help you with though. They may have an alternative or be able to make one for it.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
