Skid Shoe Hardware - SS or NOT

Went to put on the poly shoes...but the stock nut with oversized flange won't fit the routed out area where the nut goes.

So off to buy new hardware I suppose..
I'm not a huge fan of SS - skared sh1tle33 on cold weld, etc.

What camp do you sit in. Replace it with SS carriage bolt/nut or just plain old steel....

Nothing wrong with Stainless. I've used it on many snowblower applications. And try not to be scared, it's just a snowblower

Skids are adjusted from time to time. I suggest applying a little anti-seize when attaching.

ss for sure, extra cost is small in comparison, theyre stronger than u think, iirc their stronger than grade 2, and u will not have to deal w/rusted on bolts & nuts which are a major pia

Bought a dead but now fixed 1980ish craftsman II 10/28....ITS ONE HEAVY BEAST

Little blower, big skids, SS hardware.
Carriage bolts, nuts, washers and lock washers x 4 = $7 and change.
All SS from local Aubuchon Hardware.
Would've bought Grade 8, but they didn't have carriage bolts.

Good info from Bolt Depot:

Happy New Year!

Like the other have said, SS + anti-seize = no problem. I've dealt with a LOT of SS hardware in my career, no thread lube I get about 10-50% "cold weld" as you put it depending on quality of SS bolts, with a dab of anti-seize never had an issue. Blue moly is my favourite for ss, but any anti-seize should do the trick.

I've used several hundred SS fasteners on automotive and OPE projects over the last few years and... no. Never a problem. I do use antiseize almost all the time.

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.
