Can't get the blades off, are they left handed screws?

I have a john deer riding mower, 22 hp, and need to take the blades off but the cap screws won't budge. Are they left handed, or just stuck?

Know the answer or have a comment? Post it here!

The nut is a normal thread, simply stuck on maybe  with some rust or was tightened with an impact driver  or both. See if you can soak the nut and the washer with WD-40 and if available, try to use an impact driver to unscrew it.
By the way, if yours is John Deere D130 22-HP V-Twin Hydrostatic 42" Riding Lawn Mower , here is the direct link to its owners manual:
