What is the purpose of shear bolts?
Shear bolts serve two purposes. One is to fasten the auger to the auger gearbox shafts. The other purpose is to prevent damage to the auger and/or gearbox in the event the auger contacts a solid object during snow removal. These shear bolts are classified as a grade 2 bolt, which are hard enough to maintain auger rotation, yet soft enough to shear if the auger is prevented from rotating. These bolts are available through our Authorized Service Centers.
