Blade does not feel sharp, is this the way is supposed to feel, i already removed the plastic
William alvarez for model number 490100m084 mulching blade asked on 2019-01-02
Hello William, thank you for your question. Mulching blades do not need to be razor sharp. They dull easier, and don't mulch as well if they are sharpened to much. You can try the blade as is, and if it doesn't cut to your standard sharpen it slightly. I hope this helps!
I am wanting to order MTD standard mulching blade 942-07414 which states it is 21inches, however I previously ordered a 037049942466 6 in 1 Universal Power Rake (21inch) that was to long to fit my 21 inch lawn mower. (width of the blade must be less 21 inches) Do you have one) Phone No. 248-943-0339

Hi H.B., blade 942-0741A is compatible, I have no way of knowing if a non-oem part will fit. Thank you for your question and good luck with your repair!
Does this blade have a bow tie hole? I'm having trouble finding a non mulching blade for my Craftsman mower. Thanks.
george asked on 2019-06-24
Hello George, thank you for your question. Yes, the Center Hole Shape is Bow-Tie and the Center Hole measurements are 3/4"" x 3/4". I hope this helps!
I'm trying to remove the dull, bent blade to replace with a new one. I see one bolt or nut(not sure what it is exactly). I can't budge the bolt/nut thing. Any suggestions?
Carolyn Orbach for model number TB230 asked on 2019-06-17
HI, Carolyn and thank you for your inquiry. Lock the blade in place with something to prevent movement. All it takes is muscle to remove the bolt. Use a much longer ratchet or a wrench for leverage if it is stuck or use an impact gun. Good luck with your repair.
