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.

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 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 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 Best skids ever The skids made my Ariens Platinum 30 snow blower a lot better to handle. Before it was very hard to keep going in a straight line - I was always fighting it from going where ever it wanted to go. I had to keep both hands on the handle bars and stop if I had to change the direction of the chute. After I put the new skids on I could go faster and relax while blowing. Now I can use one hand on the handle bars and the other to direct the chute while still moving. After blowing for 2 hours, I do not feel like I have been wrestling with a bull like I did before. WHAT A BIG DIFFERENCE!!!!! a January 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product Purchased these for my 2014 Ariens Deluxe 28 recently. They are a HUGE improvement over the OEM skids and make handling the machine much easier on uneven surfaces. We just had 20 + inches of snow and even after 4 plus hours of running the machine, I still felt good. Compared to fighting the machine last year with the OEM / undersized skids (scraper blade grabbing and fighting the autosteer) using the machine is night and day now. Ariens should seriously consider equipping the autosteer machines with these skids directly from the factory. January 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by smoother ride The extended length of these skid shoes and the lower slope of the entry edge makes the snow blower ride along broken surfaces with less pulling from side to side. I would put these shoes on any new machine I bought. BTW, I put these on an Ariens ST824. February 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Heavy duty - much better than original equipment. These skid shoes are really heavy duty and just what I was looking for. The only issue I have is that on my Ariens, I had to have them at the highest level (approx 2 inches from ground) or they wouldn't fit exactly right. The design of the rolled metal on the side of the blower made it impossible to raise the shoes without putting the edge of the shoe over the roll. No matter - I have a tar & chip driveway, and I would prefer it a bit higher anyway. But for those who want their driveway down to the pavement, this would be an issue. February 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very easy to install and made with heavy gauge steel. Skids replace factory junk! They protect the front and the back of the blower box from bad concerete edges by sliding over not catching the edges. I do alot of sidewaks and driveways to help out my neigbors and family and so far the skid have been great. I liked them so much that I order a set for my work Honda blower. And the same guality with them. And that blower does around 1mile of side walks for kids have a safe place to walk to school insted of the street. Buy these, you will not be sorry!! Plus their MADE In The USA. February 4, 2015
