Sure are: Snow Blower Skids for all makes and models
They're sold through lots of outlets like Home Depot.

So I own a Toro 1028 PowerMax. I use it on my driveway which is paved, no cracks. And sometimes on the street to clear the mailbox. These look interesting, what would i gain by using them? Anything? Or just stick with the stock shoes.

Myself, I have converted to Poly Skids for any of my machines skids that need replacements.Might be psychological, but I feel the move around better, and I do not see the periodical rust mark from the steel skids anymore.



I did however just order a set of poly skids with the wheel in the center to try ... at only 20.00 for the pair, I felt I had to try them. I also have a drawer of small plastic wheels to replace the wheel in them if I ever need to.

What brand? I had forgotten those. Maybe in my use they would work better then a regular steel skid.

Armor Skids are a must have if you have a gravel driveway!

I have had Armor skids on my Toro 1128 since 2014 and would not be without as I do 3 yards as well as my own and 2 yards I do dogie trails work excellent on grass.

I have the same ones on my Toro 824. They move smoothly and never get caught on any cracks. As said, they don't leave rust marks on the concrete.

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 721-QZR (38743) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)
Toro 421-E (38585) 2008 (New Owner)
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
