Stainless steel bolts and nuts were used on my 130 ft 25 tower when Hurricane Isabel turned it into a pretzel (80 ft pine tree fell across a set of guys). Some of the bolts bent, but none sheared. The ones that bent had ripped the tower leg rather than break. At 09:29 AM 1/19/05, you wrote:
Rohn bolts for 25 are fine threaded and are grade 5. However, they usually turn to rust in a short period of time.
