 Update: Sitrex Nut Torque

I contacted Sitrex about my SM180. They sent me a Manual (.pdf file) "Assembly, Use and Maintenance Spare Parts List". The manual just states tightened the blade retaining, no torque values are given. The email Sitrex sent me states 220 foot pounds. I quess I won't have to worry about over torqueing.

 Update: Sitrex Nut Torque

You're right, that is alot of torque.
I finally torqued them to 150 foot pounds, because
that's as high as my torque wrench will torque to.
I know I could add an extension and do the math to get to the 220 foot pounds, but I've used the mower at this 150 ft. lb setting and it seems ok.
Besides, I what to be able to get these nuts off with a wrench next time rather than cutting them off like last time.
