Default DIY mower servicing

Hello,
I'm trying to service my Hayter self-propelled mower. I want to be able to get the blade off by unscrewing the nut underneath. unfortunately it has been put on too tight by one of those machines they use. I've trawled the DIY shops, but have been unable to get anything that will do the job. A simple sprocket set just isn't strong enough- I need a machine!
They must be available somewhere, but I need to know what they are called and where I can get one.
Thanks.

Silly question, but you are turning it the right way aren't you?

Absolutely. And if that doesn't do it slip a 3' piece of pipe over
the breaker bar handle.

Don't know the name of it and it's out in the workshop under tons of
other stuff, but there is a spray can of something, it foams when
applied, and you soak the culprit overnight. The next morning you can
almost loosen the thing with your fingers. If you want I'll try to
find my can and give you the name.

Sorry for the delay but I'm old and the workshop is a pretty good
walk. The stuff is called Penetro 90. It works for me.

Are you sure you are turning it the right way. A lot of those are reverse
threaded.

really for what you would pay for one i would take your mower to a garage and get them to loosen the the bolt for you so that when you tighten it up you can do it to your own tightness but remember it as to be tight if the the blade comes off it will smash not only the mower but you uo as well
