I wish I could even lift for long enough at a time to have the luxury. I haven't lifted heavy in ~2mo., been focusing all my energy on wrestling. (Season starts in five days.) But, leaving that out of the equation, I'd probably deload about every four weeks.

I pretty much had to deload around week 8 but I'm a newb on the SS program and I've only done it once so I don't know if my vote counts. lol

If I was strictly strength training (no injuries, or SE work) then i would prob deload roughly every 8 weeks, or when I felt like my body needed it. Its tough to put a difinitive time frame on it, cause if your gaining its hard to mentally take a step back.

Backing off or taking it real easy for a week to give yourself a break both mentally and physically.

I always thought I could go six to eight weeks myself.. But I've come to find out that I have much better results across the board hitting a deload after no more than four weeks. Sometimes I think I can push it for another week or two, especially when I'm "in the zone" strength wise. But, each time I don't pull back on the reigns, one of two things ALWAYS happen: Either my pec starts aching, or I feel really run down and completely unmotivated.

I deload the weight after about 8 weeks, do that for a week then switch up my whole routine, then go back to lifting heavy. I find its a great way to keep my body still growing.
