Got about 5 in of fresh light snow so got to test out the armor skids, it is a huge improvement over the stock ones, with the wet weather we had last few weeks there are lots of rough frozen areas at the end of driveway and no problem for ease of operation.

Used my Toro 1128 OXE with armor skids, this morning my driveway is paved but blew the neighbours across the street and his is 75 ft x 20 ft and is gravel, there was no problem at all with digging in or uneven spots in the yard. Plus they looks great.

I have taken my Armor Skids off this morning, when the wet snow that came off the house roof I could not keep my bucket from climbing so I will try the stock skids again. But the Armor skids work great on a gravel drive way better than stock. Only a 5 minute job doing the change.

Bob here at Snowblower skids is sending me a new design to test out for him for when this snow comes off my garage roof and lands on my deck on the other side of garage with the present Armor skids it just rides up, and is very hard to blow off my deck. I am super pleased that he is trying to improve his product line for all of us.

I've encountered this issue with packed snow. Frequently, with piddly one or two cm snow events, I just shovel it off to the side of the asphalt driveway. When the pile is big enough, out comes the blower. The pile can be up to two to three weeks old and up to three ft deep. Much of the H2O in the pile evaporates over that period and the snow in the pile gets compressed. The ARMORskids tend to ski up the tighter packed snow at the bottom of the pile. It's manageable but requires significantly more grunt to get through the pile than with the OE steel skids. A not unexpected trade-off because in fresh snow, the ARMORskids are awesome.
