Repowered twin stick

Replaced the tired 8 horsepower with a 10. Upgraded med shoot and added snow hogs.

Next year going to take everything apart and repaint and put on xtrac tires.

@AriensProMike,

Just in case, I thought I would mention that I have switched to these Poly Roller Skids from the steel ones, on sale ot only 20.00 a pair, with great success on my machines.

I'll give them a shot. I have a set of the other poly skids without rollers. Might try these first.

Only one small detail when installing them and adjusting them.

Once you place your bucket cutting edge on a piece of wooden yard stick or paint stirrer, on a level surface, and remove your old skids, and set these new ones on, bring the wheel down to the surface, but slip a piece of cardboard or something under the small front and rear edge of the skid portion, in order that the skid section itself does not dive forward, or pitched backwards, causing premature wear on the skid section. It sounds like a lot , but it only takes a second. You'll see what I am talking about when you install them. A plus is they roll around so easy when there off as well ..

These are by far the best skids I have used. I seen them around before for like 35.00 and was leery and to cheap .. … but I figured I would try them at 20.00, and glad I did.

that is a poorman's SHO Mike!...Is an impeller kit in it's future? I've alway's felt the twin sticks were under appreciated....I particularly like the early ones with the older cast iron gearbox. I think the medium chute will be OK for your application.....I've got one on my 208cc 1973 and it shoots great
