– John Deere Mower Blades

This brand does not usually have reverse thread bolts, which means that the blades are reverse-threaded. The bolts are often found threaded in the typical fashion. In order to tighten the bolt, turn it clockwise to the right. To loosen the bolt, turn it counterclockwise to the left.

The mandrel assembly attaches to the deck and spins the blade. The bearings in the mandrel assembly wear down through normal use. An unbalanced blade speeds the wear on the bearings, as does hitting rocks while mowing. The mandrel assembly in this repair guide includes the blade shaft and bearings.
Left-handed threads are also known as reverse threads. These threads are used in specialized applications in which the application of pressure would force a right-handed screw or bolt to come loose.
Reverse thread fasteners are turned to the left to tighten, unlike regular nuts and bolts that turn to the right. Commonly used in applications where the continuous rotation of an assembly would cause a standard right-hand threaded fastener to unscrew, while a left-hand fastener remains securely in place.
Most lawn mower blades rotate in a clockwise direction (counter-clockwise when viewed from below), and as such have the cutting edge on the right side. If you are unsure of how your mower rotates, check the position of the discharge chute; if it is on the right side angled back, the blade turns clockwise.
Which Way Are Mower Blade Bolts Threaded? According to the website, the bolt that holds the mower blade in place is threaded in the usual way. The process is as follows: tighten it right by turning it clockwise, and loosen it left by turning it left by turning it clockwise.
