HSS1332ATD skid question

Will be buying my new 1332 next week. I realize the auger doesnít have/need them but there are two (one on each side) fitted with a single bolt behind it that Iím concerned will scratch my small section of concrete driveway. I know this was addressed in the past, perhaps for a different model, but is there a third party replacement I can fit in lieu of the existing? Maybe Iím overthinking this?

Since Iím going to keep this outside, albeit on my covered deck, throughout the winter Iím thinking I just might get a spare battery and keep it on a trickle charger in the garage when we have those sub-zero extended spells here at 9600í. I think I can buy this from Honda but other options? Figures I left all my metric tools back in Florida from the days working on my French cars.......Iíll get a small set ........

Appreciate it......


Thanks ahead of time.......

I Installed these skid shoes from Fall Line on the sides of my auger housing and left the rear ones in place.

https://www.fallline.com/default/ski...wer-skid-shoe/

I'm in Ontario, we have extended -20c winter's and even in the coldest days I had 0 issues starting. I don't put it on a charger, it's stored outside in a shed that's not insulated but does protect it from the wind.

I think you'll be fine without a spare battery.

If anything get a good battery tender and keep it plugged in.

My hss1332actd is 3 years old.

I run the honda one on my 1332 with no issue. Not much expensive.

Hey, interesting, thanks.

I actually just called Falline and spoke to a guy who has a 1332 as well and he said basically the same thing. Iíll order the two side skids for the auger as a backup and he actually removed the other two that are behind it. I was concerned about throwing it out of balance but he said no way, the center of gravity is essentially over the tracks and he has a ground surface he doesnít want to scratch up either. Great info.

Thanks for your help.

HSS1332ATD skid question

Honda sells some OEM polymer shoes (06769V45A00) that would help if youíre worried about damaging concrete.

This kit consists of side-mount auger skid shoes made from ultra high molecular weight polyethylene, which is a highly wear-resistant thermoplastic. The excellent strength, abrasion resistance, and low coefficient of friction results in up to 3 times greater life over traditional steel skid shoes. The material also provides the added benefit of reducing the chance of damage to fragile driveways, sidewalks, or garage floors. Once the skids wear down, simply remove, rotate, and reinstall to get double the life from them. This kit fits all HSS724A, HSS928A, and HSS1332A models and includes two side-mount skid shoes, reinforcement plates, mounting hardware, and installation instructions.

But they certainly arenít cheap.

Are the ones from Jack’s a set with hardware (nice) or is the price for just one, do you know? A good deal if they’re a set including hardware.

Theyíre a set and include the hardware. Iíve got them on my 928. I only put them on part way through last season, but they do seem to be holding up well. And, like most poly shoes, theyíre reversible so you can flip them once they begin to wear down on one side.

Garage
Either of the poly skids mentioned would be perfect for what you need. I switched the poly skids out for armorskids to handle some uneven sidewalk slabs better. For the charger I use a Battery Tender Jr.
