They did an excellent job on the skids. That's how skids used to be made.

Are these suppose to be a matching pair. One is shorter in length than the other.

There were a matching pair originally but the guy reconditioning them worked on them at different times and did not pay that close of attention to the original design.

At the end of the day the differences are insignificant.

Thats funny as I just picked up a pair of these from ebay for around $10 shipped (used).

The design of these is similar to the Honda heavy duty skids, these are just a bit wider, which is a good thing I guess. There was not much to reconditioning them

1) Cleaned them using a wire brush attachment.
2) Leveled the bottom surface using an angle grinder.
3) Added additional welds to the plate.
4) Applied primer and then painted them.
5) To use them with honda HS series I did have to fabricate spacers using 1/4" metal plate.
6) New holes would be drilled in the housing to mount them, the width of the holes in these skids and the honda skids is not the same.

this is how they looked when i first bought them, I'll post new current condition pictures later. All in all $10 well spent.

Mounted on a Honda, love these shoes. If my other machines didnt have the holes already drilled then I would have certainly gone with these rather than OEM honda ones and or armorskids. Armorskids are too big and hondas are too small, these are just right in width.

my grandfathers old toro 724 model 38050 still has the original skids shoes on from the late 70s and they are still good for another 35 years or so of use by the looks of them. those skids seem to last forever and never wear out. same thing with my toro 726, still has the original skids
