    Default Re: Countyline Tiller: Check The Bolts!

    Why bolts in a new machine are loose? and, you people say this happens often.
    Is it intentionally by manufacturers (to disassemble some parts easily to show it a customer if asks) or is it a sabotages of laborers of mfgs? (I couldn't think of anything else)

    I am sure all bolts are tightened to spec at manufacturers, however, when put in the field for the first time or 2 and put under stress behind the tractor, sometimes a bolt or 2 may need to be re re-torqued. This has been the case since the beginning of time. We have seen this Anomaly in the TK implements as well. Ken Sweet

    Wait...you check the air in your tires? Don't they put some in when you buy them?

    Actually you loose 1+ lb per month no matter what, so you better be checking them regularly. If you get a puncture and the object stays in the hole, usually you develop a slow leak that can only be found by routine maintenance. Ken Sweet
