Skids for my 2003 Toro 826 LE Power Max

Since the OEM original skids were on the verge of being toasted, I opted to try a set of Bob's skids after reading about them and communicating with him concerning the particulars of installion on my machine (actually my wife's dowry for our marriage in 2007)........


I was advised to order the spacer plates and the ASC0310-D skids.
Received them and installed them and I'm ready to go, if we ever get any snow here in north central Indiana. Yesterday morning we had a super heavy and rather spectacular frost fog with just enough breeze to make it look like it was snowing lightly.......but false alarm.

Anyway, I very impressed with the precision fit, fabrication, welding, and finish quality of these new skids. My instincts tell me these are going to perform flawlessly. I'm anxious to givem' a try, but for now there's no reason to fire the beast up.

Pics below of the installation on the Toro 826 LE.

the old skids:


Suggested spacers (2 per side) in place:


Initial test fitting (right side):


Clearance with housing:


Ready for action:


Love the way the skids extend to the front and the rear of the housing for protection:
