    Replace Blade harware? RC2060

    I want to pull the blades off my RC 2060 and sharpen them up this winter, but the manual says in bold letters, "Whenever the blades have been removed or
    replaced, blade hardware MUST also be replaced."

    Are they talking about the nut and bolt that holds it on?

    That's $30+ for a set of those. Why 'must' that be replaced? This is a new cutter for this year, but I dinged the blades pretty good this summer and want to start with them fresh for next year.
    Anyone reuse their old ones? Issues?

    Thanks
    T.O.

    I'm sure they are, because of such a very high (425 ft lb) torque value. Are you able to achieve that torque number?

    Yes, I will be able to
    But WHY do they say to replace them?
    It's a bolt. You torque it down and it's torqued down. Why replace it?

    I'm guessing, but because of such a high torque, that bolt will definitely get "stretched". A one time deal.
    Reminds me of my motorhead days when replacing heads on an engine. You never reuse hardware. When they are torqued, they stretch. You will not be able to achieve the same torque value (used bolt) because of that.
