Armorskids toe-in?

Platinum 24. Adjusted scraper bar & skids. Noticed that the Armorskids have a lot of toe-in. Is that normal? Thanks

More stability at high speeds, lol.

Is it sitting flush against the bucket. You might be hanging up on the shave plate bolt.

Are you using any Armor Skids spacers or just the skids against the auger housing??

Go left.....No, your other left!

My guess without a picture is that you need to run his spacers. Otherwise, The skid will hit the ribbing around the front of the blower housing.

Only way to tell is to put her on a rack. While you're at it check the caster & camber...

Maybe the frame is bent. Has it ever been in an "accident" ?

No big deal. I was going to get lowered spindles and sway bars for it anyway. Might as well bag it, too. Thanks for the help.

lol.. In all seriousness Interesting that they do, like wedging skis, not sure if that is the correct term, you would think that the toe-in can theoretically slow you down a bit. I heard the owner of ArmorSkids is very hands on and helpful. Just a suggestion if I may you may want to send him an email about it and hear what he has to say.

Did some searching and found this (below). Machine discussed is the Platinum 24, so it looks like I need the spacers. Thanks for the replies. Installing Armorskids and Spacers | Snow Blower Skids
