Platinum 30 armor skid

Hey Guys,

Do you see any reason to change the way I installed these skids? They seem to work well enough.

If i mount it any more forward it is not flush with the body due to the lip that you can see.

I can't comment on the height you installed them at but it looks ok especially if you had the chance to try them as such but they sell spacers for this exact reason for the lip. Good Luck

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.

The spacers are nice, but if you are in a hurry, go to a good hardware store and get a couple of thick washers for each bolt...works good! You have them mounted too far back, but if it works for you..go with it, but if mounted properly it protects your bucket edges.
