For the ease of storage I took my 48" blade off of the frame/mount, which meant I had to undo the springs on the blade. Not too hard getting off, but this season I realized very quickly that it was not going to be easy putting them back on.

Maybe if I worked out more, but it sucked trying to get those back on.

Cub Cadet blades are easy to install the springs.

You install the springs FIRST, then put the pin in.

First time I tried it the other way, (pin first), I was ready to scrap the blade!!

I ended up using the back of a hammer, but I was straining to get those springs on there. Took me awhile and pretty much drained all strength from my arms, back, and legs.

just use a long heavy duty Philips head screw driver. the bigger the better.
put the head of the screw driver on the blade top where the holes for the springs go. then put the spring on the screw driver and lift they normally go right on. may then have to use a hammer to knock then into the holes.
