Removing bush hog blades

I have a fairly amateur question.

I'm trying to remove the blades from my bush hog for sharpening, and I'm not having any luck. I have the bush hog manual, and I'm pretty sure I know what needs to be done, but I simply can't get the bolts loose. It has an access panel about six inches wide on the top of the bush hog. The best tool I currently have is a socket wrench with about a 1.5 foot handle, but I get nowhere. Any suggestions?

I'd also be willing to buy a hand-held grinder and sharpen them on the bush hog, although I'm not real big on crawling under that thing. Even if it's well-supported, I still have visions of being squished! Do most people sharpen the blades on or off of the bush hog?

I appreciate any assistance.
