Exclamation Ariens ST 2+2 on flagstone walks

My Dad gave me his Ariens 2+2 Standard Model # 932015. My driveway is plowed by a service and I do the Flagstone walks (think uneven surface with crevices in between stones) . I haven't tried it yet, but am concerned that this unit may not perform well given the scraper blade and auger housing and friction drive set-up.

I would appreciate any ideas on how to set-up or operate this machine on this surface.

PS: I don't expect a perfectly clean surface as this unit might produce on a paved surface

Thank you

It will work fine you just need to adjust the skids/shoes so the scraper bar is an inch or so off the ground.

Composite skid shoes may help as well. Last longer and don't damage surfaces, don't rust, etc. Ariens Non-Abrasive Skid Shoes-72600300 at The Home Depot
