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. Armors kids provide a ski-like glide over uneven terrain, exactly what is needed for gravel driveways. Details: This skid size has 4 slots. The slots are designed to have a slightly loose fit on a 3/8 bolt. If you have a 5/16 bolt, you will need to use washers (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.

Have a new Husqvarna 30" snow blower, auto transmission, without tracks.
Used another model of these on my old MTD and they were fantastic.

I do not believe so. For a two inch spacing you need model ASC2475A. See if Home Depot can get these for you.
For your Husqvarna snowblower model, refer to this web page:

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Surprising Improvement ! Finally getting a heavy snow to try these out they tended to "ski" over wet heavy snow a little which is understandable as they are larger than stock , I used a little upward handle pressure to counteract . After finishing I realised I never felt one jolt from uneven concrete joints which is the reason I got them , the stock skids were not good with that ! February 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Product I needed something to raise my snowblower housing for our crushed stone driveway. I did not feel the OEM skids were long enough to prevent me from catching more stones than I want. These will be a perfect solution (we have not had any snow yet to try them with - but I did a simulation walk with it and it worked as I hoped. I put these on an Ariens Deluxe 28 SHO and used spacers between the housing and skids to add 1/4" space - so they wouldn't touch the blower housing lip. You may want to search for "SPC0300 " to find exact fit spacers. Easy installation and height adjusting. The quality is top-shelf. The new design has one end wider than the other to be easily adaptable for flat surfaces (narrow end forward) ......or bumpy surfaces - as mine is - (wider end forward). I had contacted the manufacturer directly with a question and they could not have been more responsive and pleasant to deal with. I'm almost (I said almost) hoping for snow to use them!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for gravel driveway I have an old Ariens snowblower that finally wore out, so I recently bought a new Ariens model with the same 24-inch width. But the new machine is much heavier -- especially in front, since the drive wheels are farther back than on the old one. The skids were plowing furrows into the driveway, so I had do something. I was pleased to find these longer skid shoes; they work well, stay on top of the gravel. I added shims to space the shoes out about 1/4 inch to clear the rolled edge at the front of the snowblower. (See the picture.) The Ariens stock bolts work fine for mounting. November 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product I purchased the skid shoes because I have a gravel driveway and wanted something that wouldn't dig in. Had a nice snow storm a few weeks ago and got about 2 feet. Skid shoes worked as advertised, very pleased. Hope this ends blowing gravel in my yard. I had to shim the shoes with some washers to get the right fit on my 2014 Ariens Deluxe 28 snowblower. Good product. December 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heavy duty skids Installed on a new Ariens 28" Deluxe. Skids install in minutes and work great. Protect the body of the blower front and back end and effortlessly rides over rough surfaces. March 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by If I had three thumbs all of them would be up!!!! Very well built. Installed them the first day I got them on my craftsman 28" snow thrower, the midwest got dumped on. At first I set them to high but could instantly tell how much smoother the use was. Set them to the right height and it was game on. I should say my driveway is 50 yards with a huge turn around and it's all gravel. I need a good snow blower, and I have one. The shims the snow blower came with plastic (puke) fine for a year that's it. Before it was like fighting a bronco my shims were 5 years old and barely holding on. After install was like a brand new snowblower. Now I will fight the machine less and come spring I will have less annoying gravel in my yard. Bravo!! I think these things will outlast my snowblower well worth the money. February 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keeps my Ariens going straight! My new Ariens snowblower tend to pull whenever I hit the grass on the side of the driveway. So I decided to try these skids to see if they would correct the problem. Received them quickly and very easy to install. I just used 3 stainless washers on each skid to keep it out past the front flange of my blower. Worked beautifully the next time I used the snowblower. I couldn't ask for anything more. Thanks for the GREAT product!!! February 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Armor skids for Ariens 28" Delux Snowblower Picked up the product at my local Home Depot store. They installed easily and fit the machine perfectly I used a nut to space them out 1/4" to clear front of chute where the metal is rolled. At the highest setting the scraper clears the ground by 1" and the auger clears by 1 1/2". Hopefully this will be enough for clearing my 600' long driveway which is gravel. Would like to rate them 5 star but no snow yet this year due to elnino ??? or something like that. Maybe I will upload a video and rereview then again when I get to use them. December 24, 2015
