    I don't have a clue and I'm not worried. I know it's not enough to damage the threads and It's enough to hold the blade.

    There was a tire shop with employees with your same attitude. I did say was because it eventually went out of business because of twisted off lug bolts.

    you aint gonna snap a 5/8 grade 8 bolt with an impact. plus most wheel shops just use an impact to install lugnuts. rarely do you see a guy use a torque wrench. and many impacts put less torque going forward versus reverse.

    Re: Removing mower blades

    Being 58 yrs old and was made to cut the grass when I was a boy I'd say I have some experience with mowers. That being said....I've NEVER put a torque wrench on a spindle nut and I have never had one to come off because I left it too loose. As stated before, I use an impact drill to remove and tighten the blades and ALWAYS use anti-seize.
    Most people live to work.....I work to live.

    They'll only do it on mine once. When a breaker bar with a 4' cheater is needed to take a wheel off I don't go back to idiots.

    ... I can hear you have never had stressed wheel studs let go, at speed.
    I wish you never have to be there to control a >3tonne payload whilst your
    front nearside skips out in front of the vehicle.... showing it's brand new
    shiny tread.

    Life gets very interesting very quickly

    As others have tried to air, there is fixed (to) and there is tite. Pros know the difference
    and why :/
