Skids for A Bob Cat

Anyone know of supplier for a set of soft skid shoes that will fit a Bob Cat with 2" CTC bolt spacing?
I'd like to avoid the endless scrape marks on my walkway, and driveway this season if possible.
Thanks

I don't know the MTD's bolt spacing. Most of the skid shoes that I see have spacing of 2 3/8" and up. My machine has 2" bolt spacing.

i just measured a set of those MTD universal poly skids, appears that you MAY get the two inch spacing using the the cam bolt hole and the slot in front or behind it. if all else fails......get creative with a poly cutting board, or pick up some thicker stuff and make em.

I've been thinking about trying the Robalon poly shoes. Here is a link to some that have two inch spacing, a little spendy but the website says they last longer than steel and won't mark up your drive. They use 5/16 bolts.
