BLADE BOLTS FOR LAWN MOWERS

The image above represents typical push mower blade assemblies.
Your mower may differ than what is shown. The illustration above is for general discussion only.

REFERENCE A IS THE BLADE ADAPTER OR SPINDLE ASSEMBLY

REFERENCE B IS THE BLADE BOLT

REFERENCE C IS THE BLADE

REFERENCE D IS THE BELLEVILLE WASHER OR FLAT WASHER WHEN USED
The design above has a "locking" blade with pins on the blade adapter to prevent the blade from rotating towards "tighten". If the pins are worn on the blade adapter, replace the blade adapter. Those pins are made so that they will wear or even break away if something solid is struck by the blade, preventing the engine shaft from being bent, "hopefully".

Often used is a "fiber washer" between the spindle and the top of the blade.
The fiber washer is used to prevent over tightening of the blade bolt when the blade hits something solid like a rock, stump, roots, and other solid items the blade may hit.
Grasshopper mowers use fiber washers
Dixie Chopper mowers use fiber washers.
Replace fiber washsers every time blades are removed for any reason.

IT IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA TO REPLACE THE BLADE BOLTS AND THE SPRING WASHER. The spring washer ( Belleville washer ) will become flat over time. If you find your Belleville washer is flat, replace it.

Blade bolts on lawn mowers take a beating and the heads become rounded off. If you don't replace the blade bolts you might find some day that you can't keep a wrench or socket on the bolt head and your ability to remove the blade bolt is now gone.

BLADE BOLTS FOR LAWN MOWERS BIG DOG LAWN MOWERS
For some Big Dog Lawn mowers, the Blade bolt for spindle assembly 601804 is Big Dog part number 781872.
Also replace the Belleville washer. The Belleville washer is a locking spring type of washer used to secure the blade to the spindle assembly. Use Big Dog blade washer 782474 with the same 781872 bolt and 601804 spindle assembly.

Dixie chopper used figer washers to help keep the blade bolt from becoming overly tightened from blade rotation in the direction of "tighten". Using worn fiber washers can cause serious and expensive problems when trying to remove blades.

Not all lawn mower manufacturers used fiber washers, but they are very inexpensive and serve a great purpose. Never reuse fiber washers when replaceing or sharpening blades.

BELLEVILLE WASHERS FOR LAWN MOWERS-
It is important that you understand the need for fiber washers. Some say they are used in the lawn care industry on blades to help with harmonic vibrations. I say, not so! The primary purpose and only reason to use FIBER WASHERS is to prevent over tightening of the blade attachment bolt.

While some manufactures not using Fiber Washers rely on features like "keys" and "stars" to lock a blade onto a shaft these methods only cause damage to the shaft and other components when the blade un-expectedly strikes something, perhaps a rock or stump, root or pipe sticking out of the ground.

Our favorite design is where the blade and shaft design uses fiber washers. It is safe to say that if you have a fiber washer in good condition, your blade will be permitted to "slip" if it strikes something. Fiber Washers when used properly can prevent costly blade shaft repairs and replacement. So many times people don't understand the importance of Fiber Washers. Perhaps the dealership that sold the machine did not understand the importance either. Not understanding the importance of Fiber Washers by a dealership and not passing on the importance of Fiber Washers to the customer will cause the customer to toss aside the fiber washers when blades are changed, or to "over use" fiber washers.

Any time blades are removed from the blade shaft or the blade bolt is removed or loosened for any reason, all fiber washers should be replaced.

Have you ever looked at the fiber washers after they have been in use for a long time? They are "smashed" and have been compressed by the forces acting upon the fiber washer between the blade shaft and the blade. When a blade bolt is tight, it will become tighter with use. The blade as it strikes grass and other loads applied to the rotational forces of the blade will be caused to rotate backwards towards "tighten" in regards to the thread design of the blade bolt. This ever so slight force applied to the blade is transmitted via friction and surface tension into a twisting moment onto the blade bolt. Now if you don't hit anything and your blade load and twisting forces remain constant, theory says your blade bolt will only get so tight and will stop "tightening". But, if you were to hit something unexpected, your blade will be the first to absorb any shock load applied to the leading edge of the blade. The blade will have the tendency to take the blade bolt towards tighten even more. But if you have a fresh fiber washer, the blade will be permitted to slip on the fiber washer. This slippage is desirable and under the right conditions, you should be able to rely on the fiber washer to prevent your blade bolt from being twisted toward tighten.

Think about it, the blade is rotating counter clock wise, in a direction, trying to "loosen" the blade bolt. What keeps the blade from "un-screwing" the blade bolt is the forces impacting the blade as it rotates. Acceptable forces and normal forces are those of the grass and clippings impacting the blade as it rotates. It is that one moment in time that the blade strikes something and "slips" on the fiber washer, that you should feel lucky and glad you have fresh fiber washers on top of your blades. If you had used old and worn out fiber washers, your blade would not slip. Worst case, if you had not used your fiber washers, the blade would have nothing to "slip" on and would carry the blade bolt with it in a clock wise rotation, tightening the blade bolt.

In our repair shop, with every blade sharpening, we always install new fiber washers for customers and those customers never have problems with a blade bolt being too tight to remove. It is the customer that does not change out the fiber washers, or tries to "re-use" fiber washers that have been smashed by the compression forces that come in with shaft and blade in hand, asking, "can you remove the blade bolt for me". Our answer is always "You did not change out your fiber washers", "your blade bolt threads are now welded onto your blade shaft." The heat from the tightening friction actually melts the threads of the bolt and the shaft fusing them together so that even if you were able to remove the blade bolt, the shaft would be ruined.

All you need to do is compare the cost of a blade shaft, blade bolt and your time to quickly realize how inexpensive fiber washers are.
