    I did a search and couldn't find this one. Does anyone know what the proper torque is for the cutting edge bolts? Now I know there will be a couple of ones that say tight! Just wondering what the exact spec is for them!

    Thanks,

    Doug

    call fisher they'll tell you. There is an exact spec, but IF you are useing factory Fisher hardware it is grade 8 so as tight as you can get it will suffice. I used a 1/2" breaker bar at 24" plus a 24" cheeter pipe to torque mine- never loosened. If you're useing hardware from the corner store you'll break them plowing from shock so don't bother.
