Customer comments to Bob:
Per your request, I am including a picture of Armor-skids model PROXT3575B mounted onto my Cub Cadet 3X 42″ snow blower attachment (Model # 19A40024100).
When initially searching your web site, I didn’t see this blower model listed on your fitment chart, so hopefully this helps both build your information base and prospective costumers find what they need. Also, spacers are not required to realize full skid adjustment in this this application.
They fit and look great. They’re just what is needed to keep the blower from digging into soft gravel and unfrozen ground. The skids included with the blower and a couple aftermarket models I’ve tried on this unit are far too narrow; because of the significant weight of the blower unit (near 300 lbs), no matter how much clearance the narrower skids are adjusted for, they get driven into even frozen surfaces such as gravel and dirt, resulting in the blower picking up and distributing a lot of gravel and debris into other areas of the yard. This is damaging to the blower and the lawn mower come spring; possibly dangerous if you’re contained to aim the ejecta towards buildings, vehicles or bystanders.
Because I feel that your product makes a good snow blower design much better, I have sent an email to Cub Cadet explaining the shortfalls of the skids they include with the blower, how this decreases its utility and ease of use, how Armor-skids correct these, and how they should at least offer your product as an option when purchasing the unit for those who plan to use it off of hard surfaces.
Thanks for building a great product and for shipping it quickly. I’ll be buying more of them for my tractor /3pt hitch snow blower and any walk behinds I purchase in the future.
