Yup, impact works best. If it's still stubborn, heat the nut up with a propane torch.

If you lack air tools, heat the nut with a propane torch, then put a socket with a solid bar on it and hit the bar with a largish hammer.

Also, an extensive vocabulary of words your mother told you not to use seems to come in handy.

Ditto on the air impact wrench. If you don't have the air tools then maybe some PB Blaster then like the Rev said a propane torch on the nut.

Ditto on the nasty words.
Wedge a piece of 2x4 between the blade and the deck to keep it from spinning. You just got to find just the right spot and just the right piece of wood.

Once you have them loose, do yourself a favor and apply some anti-seize to the threads. It will make it easier to remove the next time.

Sure would like to see some pics of this. I have a deck off one of these and could use some inspiration on how I could adapt it to something else. It is a well built deck.

Yes, how it attaches, raises/lowers. Also, can you measure how far apart (front to rear) the hangers are on the tractor.
