Plow bolts feature a countersunk, flat head, square neck, and unified thread pitch. They are commonly used in road graders, scoop shovels, and other heavy-duty industrial equipment where a flat, smooth surface is required. Grade-5 plow bolts are made from a medium-grade, heat-treated carbon steel, whereas Grade-8 plow bolts are made from heat-treated alloy steel and provide greater tensile and proof load strength. The most popular uses for Grade-8 plow bolts are bulldozers and snowplow blades.
No. 3 & Clipped Head Plow Bolts
Plow bolts are available in two different head styles; No.3 head and clipped head. The distinguishing characteristics of the clipped head is the way the head diameter is reduced at opposite sides with equal sized sections removed, leaving two flat sides. This style is most commonly found on agricultural equipment.
