    I just replaced my cutting edges. Does anyone know the proper torque for the bolts?

    If they are 1/2" 75-80 pounds if they are 9/16 around 115. Take a hammer and bang the heads of the bolts, when tight, then torque. I don't actually use a torque wrench but that's the right specs.

    Oh, My bad! I just used the old bolts. They were fine. I threw a little grease on them so they dont rust on.
