    Default Help with finding Rotary Cutter Blade Bolt/Nut or Alternative

    I have an old Servis Sat6 bushog and when I pulled the blades and carrier off for inspection and sharpening earlier this year I noticed I need at least one new nut for the blade bolt as it has mushroomed. Servis is now owned by Rhino AG and as I was able to find some factory options. Funny thing is, I would think I would be able to locate a nut fairly easily but perhaps I'm not searching in the right places.

    Here are the blade bolt facts:
    3/4 inch bolt, LH thread 16 tpi, 3 inches long, one inch blade hole "flange"
    Here is a Kit I found, but I'm not sure about the company yet. This may be the way I go as 11 bucks for new bolts AND lock nuts is a great deal. Their shipping option is about 14 bucks though for two bolts LOL!

    Part #'s:
    Kit: B36107A2ALH
    BOLT# 125-908
    NUT# 5GL12160
    Nut Other - A-7A5512

    All attempts to find the kit locally have failed or even find it for a decent price. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I went to my local fastener (not fastenal) store and they sold me a nut that fit the bolt, but the markings on the nut a "i" lead me to believe it is Grade 1. It is also not a Locknut either.

    Thanks for the Nut Help. I'll get some pics to show the damage to the nut.

    Your nut is likely a grade 5, or "standard", bit of hardware.

    Here you can see the Rusty Nut that has the mushroomed end. It appears to be a locking nut with two triangle looking indention's on opposite sides. The new nuts screw all the way on very easily and without a lock washer they may vibrate loose over time. Even with Locktite on this particular application I would be worried.

    I found this one but would need to be ordered at my local Fastenal store:
    3/4"-16 Grade C Yellow Zinc Finish Steel Reverse Lock Nut
    | Fastenal
    Grade C Lock-nut

    there is a grade G available, but it is very limited qty 3/4"-16 Grade G Zinc Finish Steel Left Hand Thread Reverse Lock Nut
    | Fastenal


    Or just bite the bullet and see how RotaryCutterSupply is even with there 15 dollar shipping on 10 bucks and 2 bolt/nuts.

    With properly applied Loctite I wouldn't worry. Heck, use red Loctite if you are worried—but you may need to heat it to remove it!

    Just bumping this up for those who have more fastener knowledge than I. I returned the nuts I got at my local bolt/nut store. I'm hoping someone knows of another brand nut that would work like a woods, bushhog, etc.
