welcome to the site,,
i would check the bolt spacing of them before you buy, not sure but think they may not fit a toro as they are more for MTD made machines.

The Arnold 490-241-0010 Universal Poly Slide Shoe Kit fits just about everything including 2 7/8" spacing. Some people have reported they move but others don't seem to have the problem.

I just tried those skids on my 826 which has the same bucket design as your 824. They do not fit. Itís not due to the bolt spacing but because of the way the bottom of the bucket flares out near the front. That flare makes it impossible for the skid to rest firmly against the bucket without extra washers. I returned it and bought the OEM poly skid from Toro.

Thanks I used some extra washers to space the skids away from the bucket and got them mounted, haven't had a chance to try them yet I also ordered a set of Armor skids to try all I need now is some snow.
Would like to thank you guys for the help.

The reason I put the poly skids on is to protect the bucket I have some areas on my drive way that are cracked and and some have dropped. My Toro is new and I haven't used it yet I also bought the Armor skids to try.

I had a chance to try out the Arnold poly skids today we only got 2" or so, they worked good, when I get the Armor skids I can compare the two.
