ARMORskids

I just replaced the poly skids on the Troy-Bilt 2610 I use to clear our 150' long crushed stone driveway in NH with ARMORskids after a small stone got lodged between the impeller and housing causing the engine to stall whenever the augers were engaged.

The ARMORskids are heavy gauge steel and should last as long as the machine does. They longer and wider than the original equipment which allows the machine to ride up a little higher and have a longer base to ride one. The design is clever. You can install them one way for smooth but irregular surfaces like a concrete sidewalk or another way for a gravel or crushed stone surface.

I'm very impressed so far. I'll let you know how they work out.

Peter

I agree. I love my side mounted ARMORskids on the Honda HS1132TA. Great for use on dirt, granite driveway. Combination of a track drive with foot operated adjustable auger housing height and ARMORskids to run up and over anything is simply an unbeatable combination for a non-concrete driveway. ARMORskids are a simple product well made which simply does what it says it will do.

Hey E350, did you mount your Armorskids the normal way or "inside out" as shown on snowblowerskids.com? Not sure if it makes a difference. I guess the only difference would be you would have the gap if you mount them inside out. Also did you use 3 spacers on each side?

Thanks
