Deck spindle? Do you have the nut and pulley off the top? with pulley off you need to remove the woodruff key, then use a block of wood to drive the spindle shaft out the bottom of the deck. There is no special tool.

If the four bolts can't be removed, they can be cut or ground off with grinder or cutoff tool, or split the nuts with a chisel,
