I have a Honday 2417 ride on mower which hit a strip of metal

Customer Question

I have a Honday 2417 ride on mower which hit a strip of metal and now the blades are out of sync and nearly touching each other. What the easiest way of getting them back into alignment at 90 degrees to each other?

You have to loosen the belt, and turn blades, then re-tighten the belt. You can use a wire or small rope to tie the idler back.
