Product Overview

This extreme duty replacement snow blower shoe (sold individually) is designed to lift snow blowers up over sidewalk cracks up to almost 2 in.. Bottom runners are 12 in. long, and are CNC cut from 1/4 in. thick steel plate more than twice as thick as many stock skids. You may have bent your stock skids, but you are not going to bend these. By design, the leading edge of our skid is moved forward, to protect and gently lift snow blowers up over bumps. The angle of the leading edge is less than half that of most stock skids. For every bump the skid encounters, it has more than twice the distance to lift the snow blower up, compared to a stock skid shoe. Made in America with American Steel. Gravel is brutal on snow blowers. Stock skids dig into gravel, leave ruts, and bend when they encounter frozen rocks. Armor skids provide a ski-like glide over uneven terrain, exactly what is needed for gravel driveways. Details: This skid size has 5 slots. The slots are designed to have a slightly loose fit on a 3/8 bolt. Note that the center slot is extra wide to handle off-set mounting bolts. Washers required (not included). Note that due to size of skid there may be clearance issues with other bolts or protrusions on the snow blower. Either use the old skid as a spacer, or large fender washers to space skid further outward if needed. Patent Pending. This item is a single skid most people will want to order 2 skids, one for each side of the snow blower.

  • Lifts snowblower gently up over cracks and bumps

Customer Questions & Answers

Just purchased a 24" club cadet snowblower. Will theses shoes fit or should I purchase a smaller size shoe?

Asked by: KB
The slots for the bolts are wide enough and spaced according to a range of models. Measure the distance between the bolt holes on your Cub and there should be a version available. They have a great variety of spacings. If there's one for your Cub, you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Since we have a gravel driveway the usual skids that came with our Yard Machine snow thrower were... Since we have a gravel driveway the usual skids that came with our Yard Machine snow thrower were basically worthless. The ARMORskids are exactly what we need, and worth the price, completely. We drop them down for the gravel and bring them back up for the paver walkways. These thing are strong, easy to install, come in right and left fitting and are reversible for multiple applications. As an industrial designer, and I don't say this often, to be sure, but I am thoroughly impressed with how well thought-out these skids are. Thanks for carrying this product, Home Depot...kudos to the product manager who placed them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built I have a gravel driveway that I had new stone on this summer. The depth of the pea stone had me worried that my snowblower would dig in and toss stone everywhere. The plastic skids on my Cub Cadet have worn down to the point that there was not much adjustment left to them. The lack of thickness of these OEM skids would just plow a furrow in the new gravel. The new skids should ride on the surface. I would have like a wider bottom plate to spread the weight even more but these are so much better than what I had. Life should be good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ARMOR skids Heavy Duty Skid Shoe I have a 1 year old 30"craftsman that had those cheap plastic shoes on. The cheap plastic shoes wore out on both sides, and only did my driveway. My driveway is 400' long. I replaced them with ARMOR skids Heavy Duty Skid Shoes. These shoes are very HEAVY DUTY!!! Why didn't craftsman put these on in the beginning instead of those cheap plastic ones. REALLY CRAFTSMAN your company should be ashamed!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Upgrade Needed an upgrade to my Craftsman Pro 30" wide snow blower. Having a gravel driveway the stock plastic shoes wore out after 2 snowstorms. Since putting these on I've had no problems even after the latest 4 snowstorms. Glides great over the gravel. The 5.75 inch shoes fit perfectly, same bolts, no modifications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase - performs as advertised I just received the skid shoes for my 28'HD cub cadet snow thrower. Easy to install (perfect fit). The slot spacing on skid shoe matches the spacing of the bolts on the snow blower perfectly. The quality is as stated in the product literature - heavy duty! The best feature of these shoes is the ramp on the front of the shoe (over 2-3/4"). Like on most stock skid shoes (including the shoes on mine) when encountering uneven surfaces (sidewalks/driveways) the snow blower has a tendency to get hung up. . The way these shoes are constructed they glide right over. Because of the length of the shoe they extend a little past the blower housing for added protection (prevent damage to blower housing). Great Product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product - Best customer service from manufacturer New to snow blower usage this year. I have a gravel driveway and wanted something to enable me to do the best possible job. I had a couple of questions and reached out to the manufacturer, Bob Sayre, Bob was very helpful and a true gentleman who provided me with the information I needed. Customer service second to none. I received the skids and can tell they are very well made. They are unlike anything I have seen on the market and based on the positive reviews on this site and others, that I have read, I am hopeful they will work great for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These things are great! These are really heavy duty. Not only do they provide a much larger skid surface, they also stiffen the entire side of the blower chassis.
