Really worth it, cost less than the original ones from sears. Look like they will last a long time. Machine is much easier to move. Fit Craftsman model 536881851 perfectly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ATOs Great product that works!
After many years of replacing the skids on my Craftsman 536.886261 with original (OEM) replacements, I decided to try something new.
Original skids caught just about every crack and sidewalk gap, which unfortunately is a reality at my home. Original skids work but make snow blowing somewhat difficult. After transitioning to the ARMOR skids I can now glide right over the gaps without a single kick back of the blower catching the gaps/cracks.
Totally awesome and makes snow blowing so much more enjoyable (or tolerable :-) ). They are truly built to last and are about 3x the length of the original skids. Great job ARMORskids for producing a well-made useful product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Traveler Great solution to a Real Problem
The plastic skids that came with my club cadet snowblower were slowly wearing down resulting in the slow deterioration of the primary scraper. These heavy-duty skids will clearly extend the lifetime of the scraper. In addition, their design ensures that the snowblower will no longer grab asphalt, concrete or ice elevation changes but rather will glide with the terrain change. Clearly these solve two significant snowblower problems.
As for installation, the only way it could have been easier would have been if they were delivered with a human installer. They fit properly, they went on easily and it could not have taken me more than five minutes to put both of them on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cmpunkin A GREAT PRODUCT
I'm a 72 year old woman and cannot get out of my uphill driveway without running the snowblower. Before installing these skids, which was very easy to do, I would pick up 3/4 inch stones, even with the old skids raised as high as they would go, which could result in damage to the blower and makes yard clean up in the spring very difficult. I have already replaced the plastic chute twice due to objects breaking it. With the new skids on, the snowblower glides over the stones easily and I was able to raise the blower higher than with the old skids. I am extremely pleased with this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TW Armor skid best replacement skid
Replaced craftsman 27 inch snow blower factory skids that didn't last 1 year with Armor skids. Armor skids are a lot thicker and skid surface twice as long as factory skids and they cost less than original factory skids that I have already replaced twice. They were simple to install.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ou812 Seem to work well
Only used the skids once so far, but they seem to work well. Nice over curbs and humps. I am hopeful that they will last a long time. They are heavy duty compared to the cheap think metal ones that the snowblower came with.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wesley Big Improvement in snow blower ease of use
These skids went right on over the existing skids on my Craftsman snow blower model 536.881851 - 8.5 hp 27 snow blower and kept it from digging up the gravel driveway and chipping the brick sidewalk. This should be the type of skid snow blowers come with from the factory instead of the stupid plate skids that are standard. Great product!
