After a long, hard summer of mowing and putting your Husqvarna lawnmower blade to work, you may want to replace it. Keeping your Husqvarna lawnmower blade sharp is crucial to prevent grass from being cut with a dull blade and turning it brown; but after a long season of mowing, the Husqvarna lawnmower blade may be dinged up and unable to be sharpened.

  1. 1

    Place a piece of duct tape over the air hole on top of the gas tank to prevent any gas from leaking out when you tip the mower on its side. Tip the mower so the Husqvarna gas tank is facing up when you tip the mower on its side.

  2. 2

    Place the block of wood at the base of the mower deck, and place your foot on it to prevent the mower blade from turning.

  3. 3

    Unscrew the bolt(s) holding the Husqvarna blade to the crankshaft under the mower deck with the proper size wrench. Take note of which way the blade is pointing for a quick installation.

  4. 4

    Pull the blade off. Put the new blade in place of the old one. Screw the bolt back in with the proper size wrench until it is hard to turn the bolt.

  5. 5

    Tip the mower flat on the ground. Remove the tape from the top of the gas tank lid.

Tips and warnings

  • Wear leather gloves to prevent cutting yourself on the blade.
  • Pull the spark plug cap off while working on a lawnmower to prevent any possible shock or accidental start-up.
