    Any help would be appreciated. This year we ran 2 of these and the method we had to use today to change the paddles on one of them cannot possibly be the only way. All Toro's manual says is to take it to an authorized dealer but I want to do it myself. Todays experience was long and difficult.

    Pain in the butt job, but can be done. Paddles can be facing one direction only. Install the paddles the same as the paddles you will remove.

    If memory serves you have to take off a bunch of bolts to get one off then repalce the other the same way. Its a pain in the butt and takes a long time.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm hoping to find a better/easier way to do it tho. I wonder how the "authorized dealers" do it?

    needle nose vice grips and a good set of allen wrenches. big pain. Dealer makes it easy because they will want to replace the side metal
