Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MtnMan Essential for Gravel Driveway
I have a 42" Craftsman blower on the front of a 24hp garden tractor. (We get 150"+ of snow a year). The factory skids maybe would be fine for a good blacktop driveway. But on my 1/4 mile gravel driveway, they were worthless or worse. These were easy to install, even outside in the blowing snow. Now my snowblower floats over the gravel instead of digging in and being tossed into the woods.
This upgrade is essential for anyone trying to blow snow from a gravel driveway. Well worth the price. I'm going to get a set for my JD 1032 as well.

These are much more substantial than the original John Deere skids which lasted 25 years. I imagine that these will outlast the machine. Cost was the same as stock, but they are so much better. Highly recommend.

I call these my “Aladdin” shoes because they truly are magical. My driveway is pitted with holes and the skid shoes from the manufacturer can’t manage. They get caught in the cracks and the snowthrower nearly tips over. My “Aladdins” glide over all the divots and cracks like skis. Definitely worth the price. Sturdy and easy to install.

Look heavy duty and well manufactured. Anxious to try when the snow falls.

I ordered these to replace the factory skids on a Troybuilt 5024 snowblower. They are so much better than the stock replacements. These things are extremely heavy duty and should last for several years if not for the life of the snowblower. I was impressed with their functionality and design. Their added length makes traversing uneven sidewalks and pavement a walk in the park and a pain free experience. The price point seems like a bargain when considering the longevity one will get out of a pair of these quality American Made aftermarket replacements. Buy ARMORskids and rest assured that you have replaced your snowblower skids with the very best that is available. They come powder-coated black. I did scuff lightly with a green Brillo pad and wipe clean of dust before spray painting a bright red Rustoleum to match the snowblower. It my opinion, this made for a truly professional finished appearance .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MattM Super Duty!! Quality product
Although they cost about twice as much as OEM skids, these are well worth that and then some!! They arrived quickly and installed with no problems in minutes.
They are extremely heavy duty and you can tell they are made with quality steel. I used them for about 3 hours during a recent snow and besides the paint scratching off, the metal showed no wear. The OEM ones I replaced these with only lasted 4-5 hours before being completely ruined.
The skids glided easily over the many rises and cracks on my driveway and sidewalk, and also made it easy to create a path on the grass for the dogs.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who needs to replace their OEM skids. Just be sure and order two!!
