Imagine my surprise when I decided to tighten the seat on my new
Crafstman rider mower. Turns out there are two regular hex-headed
bolts and two torx-headed bolts. I never saw a torx bolt like that.
Turns out that it takes about a size T55 torx fitted to my ratchet to
the tune of some $10 at Lowes.
Now, why in H would they use two bolts like that? To sell more tools?
Anyway I stole my neighbor's torx ratchet, removed & replaced the two
with hex-headed bolts to keep a simple task simple. Then returned the
ratchet to my neighbor.
Just thought it was interesting, if not irritating. Sears must be
crazy. Or do they know something I don't?
