I just used S275. I'll tell you at the weekend what there like when I drop the grate Saturday. I put them in before we moved onto Ashby Magna in June. They've done about 150 - 170 Miles on the road with us this year as well as 5 weekends sawing.

We have had a set of steel bars in our Wallis Advance for something in the region of 15 years. Ordinary stock steel from our local stockist, 100mm X 10mm, notched at each end and a 10 MM. tab welded on each end. She does some pretty serious mountaineering in North Wales doing her level best to impersonate a blast furnace and they have stood up really well.

I have steel bars in my roller for the last 6 years, and so far haven't had any problems, apart from every 2 years I have to straighten them in the press.

On the rare occasion that it happens ,we find a sledge hammer and a concrete driveway suffice
