Snow Blower Skids/Feet

Postby kb3gun » Thu Jan 05, 2017 1:59 pm

New house with gravel drive. Original skids kept digging in. Simple design but works like a charm. Made out of 1/4".

Looks good! Glad it sparked some interest for you. I'm sure your new ones will last much longer than the originals.
I kept getting gravel wedging under the impeller and locking it up. Takes a hammer and chisel most times to knock it out. Have had none of that since the new shoes went on. I have mine set about 1-1/2" high.
