    poly 8ft straight blade. i've had numerous problems with bolts that keep working themselves loose and it some cases even out of the nut.

    anyone else having this problem? did the dealer not torque everything to factory specs??

    I havent run across too many that the poly sheet bolt's worked loose but if your having trouble with it you can remove the bolt's and apply some threadlocker to them.They'll stay tight then. Thread locker and Fluid film are your friend's when it come's to keeping plow's in working condition.:D

    I have the same problem with the metal v-plow. I think over time they do loosen up before they rust on permantly. I would just check them the days off and tighten them all up..

    He is talking about the bolts that hold the poly in place.
    You should re-torque(tighten) the cutting blade bolts after the first couple is uses.
    Did they use nylock nuts?
    There not suppose to be real tight on poly, Just snug.
