Compatible Drift Cutters for 924050?

Hi! I've got an old (but unkillable) 924050 (Serial 65777) that I've had for about 10 years. I'm finally getting around to getting it a bit of TLC... fresh paint, various bearings and parts, etc.

Since we get a LOT of snow here (New Brunswick, Canada) I'd like to get my hands on a pair of drift cutter for it. I see some on EBAY for $40 (which seems a bit steep to me, for a couple pieces of flat metal and bolts...)

Anyway, how "standard" are the bolt holes in this unit? Are there other more easily acquired cutters that would work on it?

They should be standard carriage bolts with some plastic knobs on the nuts. I bought a set on clearance for like $9 once when I was ordering some other stuff.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

As far as I am concerned, they are quite substantial. For instance, I can shake the whole snow thrower (2011 Troy-Bilt 2620) by pushing on them with very little flex.

I would have also got a pair for my 2015 Toro HD 826 OXE if it actually had pre-drilled holes (which it doesn't). Not about to drill holes in a nice new bucket.

These are a lot nicer than the Toro drift bars, since they can easily be retracted when not needed (e.g. using snowthrower under mail box). The picture shows the left one up, the right one down hidden).

Definitely worth the money in my book if you need drift cutters.
