    Default Loader bolts

    What is the better choice for bolts, S.S. or grade 8? I'm useing s.s. and put washer nuts on the in side but for some reason I'm thinking different. Thanks Troy

    grade 8 is stronger than SS. ss isnt really that strong. they're like grade 5 in tensile strength.

    Grade 8 with anti sieze. Make sure you check them after a trip to the river. Not so much for failure, they will rust and can be a real pain in the donkey to get out.

    Troy you will find the SS bolts seem to loosen, but they are really stretching.

    Not sure if I buy that...ran stainless for several years with no problems. Didn't change them until I switched to the black oxide.

    I buy SS nuts and bolts from a quality supplier here in Tucson all the time, and the locknuts I get will easily shear the bolt without some type of lube.
