Commercial-Grade Auger Skids in Canada

Hello All,
I'm on the hunt for commercial-grade skid shoe kit (04700-768-E110) for a Canadian HSS928ACTD. In Canadian stock systems they seem to appear as discontinued, along with the previous *-E100 part number. Does anyone have any idea if they're being superceeded again by a new part?

Can you tell me the dealer name? I'll give them a call. Nothing at my local dealer.

Picked the kit up from a local dealer the other day for $50 cdn. For my 1332, should be the same for yours?

The very same. Who is your dealer?

Thanks guys. The hunt continues! The dealer is trying to sell me on different OEM ones that are reversible but thinner and I believe they're meant for the wheeled version. I think I like the commercial grade better. Any thoughts on how those might compare? I still can't post pics yet.

Sorry for the brain stall here, but what is the difference and advantage of commercial grade shoes? I just bought a HSS724. I'm assuming they are either lower friction or better steel. Are they OEM from Honda?

Thanks

From Honda Canada: COMMERCIAL-GRADE SKID SHOE KIT - For demanding use and rugged surfaces, these upgraded side-mount skid shoes are more durable and longer-lasting than the originals. Includes all hardware.

The metal shoe is much thicker on these OEM "upgraded" skids over the original OEM ones. Skid shoes (and scraper bar) are wear items that are designed to (eventually) need replacement. I figure these should last longer.

I also like the idea of side-mount skids as a buffer between the side of the bucket and my partially covered retaining wall.
