ARMORskids on Huskvarna

I just successfully installed these new skids on my Husqvarna snowblower. The skids delivered with the snowblower grabbed on even asphalt at the edge of our street/driveway and so I turned to these improved skids. A dramatic improvement! Installation was simple but does require some thought. Because of the housing configuration, 1/2 inch spacers are needed when installing these improved skids. I sanded down the plastic skids supplied by Husqvarna but do not recommend this process. You're better off purchasing half inch spacers!

I must say with great pleasure that Bob Sayre, owner of snowblowerskids, addressed my pre-purchase questions very, very quickly and thoughtfully. His shipping was fast. Overall, I'm happy to say that Bob was a delight to work with and clearly desires to ensure customer satisfaction.

I have not personally dealt with snowblowerskids/Bob but everything I have heard about Bob and his company has been very positive. He must be a pretty good man, with character and integrity.

Ted: Post up a picture when you get a chance. I am very happy using the ARMORskids on my HS1132TA on my dirt and granite driveway. The are a substantial product and they ride up and over everything! My experience with Bob Sayre, owner of snowblowerskids.com was also great. There was a little confusion at first because the Honda 1132 housing came two different ways, one with pre-drilled holes and one without. But Bob sorted it all out. I am posting here just to add to your recognition of Bob's honest and good service.

OP, that's good that everything went smoothly for you.

I sent an email Sunday evening asking a question about shipping and have yet to receive a response.
I want to order a set plus spacers for my Husqvarna as well.
I guess maybe they aren't back to work from the holidays yet.

Yes Bob is there. Just talked to him 2 days ago. Very busy. Email is the best I've found.

Finally got around to installing skids on my new Husqvarna 330T.
Bob recommended 2 sets of spacers and he was right as they were needed to fill in the backspace.
Great skids and excellent customer service from Bob.

Are those bigger than the typical Armor Skid?. They look ginormous.
