Shank and Thread Length
The weakest part of a plow bolt is the threaded area. Some of the competitors bolts are threaded the entire length of the bolt. It is always better to have a shank, or unthreaded part of the bolt in the critical area. The critical area when attaching cutting edges is between the blade and the moldboard where the largest concentration of shear pressure is found. Having a bolt with threads in this area weakens the entire system and leads to a higher percentage of bolts being sheared off or other premature
Some of the competitors bolts do not offer the heavier shank on the 1 ¼ inch bolts. This oversize shank is standard
on our bolts, offering the customer a much stronger system.
Thicker Domed Head
The CP bolt offers a thicker head than some of the competitors. This simply offers more wear life against abrasion, making the bolt last longer and thus keeping the blades longer. Tensile Strength The measurement gives you an indication of how much the bolt can be stretched before it goes into failure. The higher tensile strength bolt allows more torque to be placed on the fastening system, keeping the blade tight and resulting in fewer failures. Our bolts meet the Grade 8 specification of 150,000 PSI.
