Krone 242 disc mower blade change

Hoping a more seasoned veteran of hay could advise me on changing blades on my Krone 242. I don't feel this is the modern variant with the quik-change option where the blades are removed/replaced with a pry-lever tool...

I'm thinking breaker bar and/or maybe impact wrench to remove/replace blades?

I have done two cuttings with it last season and it cut rather poorly (swathes missed/laid flat)..

Any advice?

I change the blades on my Krone AM283 utilizing an impact wrench. Be sure to orient the blades cutting edge in correct direction of blade carrier rotation direction
