How to remove the powered brush/grass catcheron S1300?

I need to separate the above accessory on my Westwood S1300. I have slipped off the drive belt and removed the two large nuts with built in tommy bars. These appear to hold hinged clamps which would release the accessory. However, the clamps are rock solid despite using WD40. Where do I go from here?

It's a common problem - usually you can get a large screwdriver or other lever under them and lever them up. One way or another, they will have to be moved - there's no other way to remove the PGC short of taking the whole mechanism off the tractor - not really practical particularly with 70 kilos hanging on it.

Heat may help - but there's a fair amount of metal to heat up - a domestic blowlamp may just do it, but you may need to resort to a welding torch.

Once off, work them back and forth and properly grease them. I recomment that the PGC is removed for serviceing once a year anyhow - this is a good time to re-grease them to prevent it ever happening again.
