Roller Skids

Has anyone used roller skids on their Toro snowblower? Didn't know about them until just recently.

Also drift cutters dont have any on my Power Max 1028. Am missing anything ?

I put these on a 324 Husqvarna last year. So far they have worked fine for what I need. I have an unusual driveway surface that's sloped and I'm on the side of fairly steep hill.

I installed them on my Honda HSS1332ATD and so far I'm a fan! Had to use adapters to get to the Honda's hole spacing.

I have several lengths of garage door angle. It is strong, light and full of holes. That is all I have ever used until a friend (detdrbuzzard) gave me a set for my Toro 521. Garage door angle works really well.
As to roller skids.... Well..... This topic has been gone over in here time and again. For me it will pretty much always be my home made poly skids. Personally I don't see or feel the need for rollers but if they work for you go for it.

My home made ones from concrete/asphalt in-line skate wheels, works great.

I made some sets out of HDPE (cutting.board) andthey work very well but they do wear somewhat. My last.sets I made.from.... I can't remember the specific letters but it is a harder mateial and more expensive.
