A little rust on the plates (it rains a lot here) and they do not slip anymore. I have a lot of big rocks in the garden spot. Hopefully I am getting them all dug out. I carry a 3' crowbar to work them out. My LP hog has a shear bolt and never sheared last year.

    Howdy neighbor. You're doing it wrong, just loosen the bolts and mow until the thing slips on its own. Then retighten them until it only slips when needed. I usually have to go through this once every spring and I store my cutter outside.

    I'll be mowing out in Home this weekend.

    HB, I started out doing that and found that trying to adjust all the bolts evenly while on the shaft and around all that shielding was a PITA also. With it on the bench it is easy with my digital caliper. Caliper won't get into the space wuth clutch on the shaft. I am going to try drilling a small hole at the proper setting on each bolt next time it is off and then try the adjusting on the machine like you do. We all learn as we go along from our mistakes and trials.

    Where are you at on South Sound?
