WoW lug nuts fell off?? Someone should make nylock lug nuts. This is not the first time have heard about lug nuts on a UTV loosening and falling off. I'm sure it tweaked the anti rotation bar real good. were you able to get it back on and going under its own power?

Lucky for me it was down to a location where it could be truck loaded, walked 2 kms. Additional luck, the dealer was able to zip out using another machine's winch lift it to slip the track assy back on and spin on two dodgy lug nuts to drive onto the truck.


Got underway again today, with new studs, antirotation bar on order, locktite on the nuts. Not sure if I found a loose one or if I loosened it, wrenching with mitts is not my favorite game, but checking these are going to be routine for a while.

Some manufactures have had grief with this but I have nothing smart to add. We change pods out yearly (multiple sets, both makes) and never used a torque wrench on them. Did for tires...... Why did that work? Sorry I have nothing to advise.
