Question New Skid Shoes Needed but can't find any? Help?

Hey gang. You have helped me out a bunch before. We have had an 8" snow and a 4" snow here so far in central Ohio. My unit is a Craftsman 23" 10" impeller and a 5hp Tecumseh. 536.886520 Model Code 9228. I put a new carb on it. Replaced the belts. Installed SS Fasteners, changed the oil and that's about it. Like everyone told me it was underpowered. You all were correct, it is way underpowered. Definitely will be looking for a repower option this summer.

The real reason for the post is the skid shoes. The one on the left side has disintegrated and the right one is almost gone. I talked to Sears which was about worthless. They told me the part I need is no longer being produced. My unit calls for 762376-853 Skid Shoes. Is there some kind of a universal set? Or can someone give me a good part number for a set? Should I go steel, synthetic, roller? I'm open to any and all suggestions. You all have been lifesavers for me so far. If I can't find any I will go machine a set out, but I really don't have that kind of time.

Be safe, and have fun blowing snow. This is my first season ever having one. It's been awesome. Good night all and Thank you!

Itís not Rocket Science, unless you are building a Rocket!
Itís just easier to take the time to do it myself, so I know itís done right, the first time!

Have you tried: Snow Blower Skids for all makes and models
I've got them on a current machine and used similar on multiple machines I've solid in the past. The can even be used on single bolt skid setups with a little creativity.

You have a Murray made Craftsman, skid shoe #1740912bmyp. Go to Amazon, eBay, Jack's

Many are going to a poly shoe found cheap on eBay. I have not but would consider when mine wear out.

1995 Murray Craftsman 10hp, 29" w. 12" impeller
A 1983 Real John Deere 10hp, 32" w. 12" impeller, 16" auger, 20" high front, cast iron gear box, chains
Noma 9hp, 27" w. 12" impeller
Noma 5hp, 24" w. 12" impeller, 20" high front
Gravely Convertible, 12hp Kohler cast iron, 26" width, 600 lbs of cast iron & steel, 2 speed impeller, 4 ground speeds
Dynamark 8hp, 26", 12" impeller, for sale

You should measure the distance for the mounting bolts. On my Troy (MTD) I used some Ariens skids. They are sooooooo much better than the cheap one sided ones that are P/N 1740912BMYP

The stock 1740912BMYP - - >



These are the Ariens style with a 3" center to center bolt hole mounting. - - >

I think any self-respecting OPE would sell something like this.


I've purchased the poly skids for Ariens at Home Depot. I don't know if they have anything else that might fit, certainly can check on-line.

If you don't own the skids you want to buy, How do you find the center to center? I hit both Amazon links and none of the info listed the C-C.

I like them also. They are especially good if you have uneven surfaces. I have a couple of neighbors with heaved sidewalks that used to rattle my bucket every time I went over them, not anymore - I glide over them.Oh and they are Heavy Duty - will probably outlast the machine JMTC.

Jack of all trades, Master of none!

Go to Lowe's and get these Craftsman Roller Skids: https://www.lowes.com/pd/CRAFTSMAN-R...hoe/1000655669
I've used them on a Troy Bilt Tracker 2690XP and a Honda HSS1332ATD - They work great!

You would think so. I live in Ohio so we aren't the snowiest place on earth. But we have been this winter. I have been to 3 different places today. Same answer from each place "I can special order those for you." My local Lowes and Home Depot are special order as well. They can have them in a week or so. That's why I can't get them local.
