High strength, fast and easy installation, along with unmatched vibration-resistance, are what make HuckBolts® the smart choice for heavy equipment assembly applications for agriculture.

High Clamp Allows Welding Replacement and Lighter Equipment. In many applications, HuckBolts have been proven superior to all other forms installation, safety, environmental friendliness, and overall productivity.

Whether operating in the field or accommodating heavy storage capacities, agricultural machinery really takes a beating. The vibration-resistant, high-strength features of HuckBolts are ideal for tractors, harvesters, and towed equipment such as grain carts, ploughs, planters, balers, tillers, and rotary cutters. Typical applications for Huck® fasteners are found in the chassis, cab frame, seats, maintenance access panels, and wheel nuts. Huck fasteners can also be utilized in both mobile and permanent storage structures like grain silos.

These engineered fasteners are installed using a unique direct-tension/swaged-on method, providing for a smooth, jolt-free installation. The potential for repetitive stress syndrome, often experienced with torque wrench installations, is virtually eliminated. In addition, as compared to welding, using Huck fasteners does not require highly trained installation personnel, and provides for fast, safe, and accurate assembly.

Whether in the mine or on the construction site, hydraulically powered equipment encounters tough, vibration-intensive conditions. Dozers, excavators, and other heavy equipment need the high-strength, vibration-resistant hold only HuckBolt® fasteners can deliver. HuckBolts consistently provide extremely high shear and tensile strength, and are proven to hold tight in extreme, high-vibration environments such as mining and construction. In addition, HuckBolts are highly reliable for use in equipment cabs, doors, floors, and other attachments.

In many applications, HuckBolts have been proven superior to all other forms of assembly for speed and accuracy of installation, safety, environmental friendliness, and overall productivity.

Compared with conventional torqued-on nuts and bolts and when contrasted with welding, Huck fasteners offer consistent clamp that is designed into the fastener itself – clamp integrity is not dependent on the tool or the operator.

Click to download HuckGuard® for High Corrosion Protection from Howmet Brochure

Developed specifically to protect swaged collars and Huck 360® nuts, HuckGuard provides a strong, added layer of corrosion resistance. HuckGuard for bolts is a zinc-rich basecoat, plus an organic topcoat, that helps protect the integrity and life of the joint. In fact, collars and nuts treated with HuckGuard can sustain up to 500 hours of salt spray testing.

HuckBolts are installed with a direct tension swaging process. This is what gives HuckBolts their superior clamp and tensile strength, and, unlike conventional nuts and bolts, it’s what makes them vibration resistant. The installation process creates significant tension on the fastener collars, which can compromise the collar’s finish and ultimate corrosion-resistant properties. However, fasteners treated with HuckGuard offer the added layer of protection needed to guard against the forces of this direct tension/swaging process. HuckGuard adheres to the zinc basecoat, while providing a high degree of ductility.
