Default Busted a bolt on new mower deck.

You might remember this Scag Cheetah is not even one year old. I got it last June.

The mower deck hangs from a chain and is bolted at top and bottom. The bolt going through the chain link on the bottom busted today. No obvious reason as to what caused it to break.

It was held on with a gold bolt. For chaining down the RTV I bought gold chain because it was stronger. Is that the same with bolts?

I bought a stainless steel bolt to replace the broken one. It works but, is it stronger than the gold one that broke?

How do you tell the strength of bolts?

I had my previous Scag Wildcat from 2005 till 2017 and never once did anything other than a belt break.
Scott me up Beamy!
