Finni 65

I just used the skids I ordered from after our first snow this year. These are definitely the Cadillac when it comes to snow blower skids. I am so happy I invested a bit more and got these hefty shoes, instead of some lesser regular type. I have an older Simplicity 10008 model snowblower. The old skids were wearing away, after years of use on our gravel driveway. These skids are much heavier steel and they measure a full twelve inches long. The factory ones were only five and one half inches. These do glide along even on gravel, and much smoother! If I purchased a new snow blower I would consider upgrading to these on arrival. For replacements they are the way to go, although they do cost a little more. In the long haul you will not notice the price difference very much, and you will know your work horse of a snowblower is on solid footing. Fortunately, I was able to use the old bolts I already had to install them. They worked just fine, for me. When ordering, measure the distance between the holes twice to make sure you are ordering the correct skids. recommends this. I am glad I took their advice. My first measurement was not correct. Also, look to see If you have any clearance issues with the machine itself. They do offer spacers and bolts at extra cost, although you may not need them. Installation is really easy. It takes about ten minutes. The skids come as a set of two. Nice!
