Attached are some photos I took of the ASC3575-B ARMORskids on my new Craftsman 247.883961 30″ snowblower. The skids fit perfectly with no additional shims or washers required. I was done installing them in literally 5 minutes. As the website says, the ARMORskids are made of high quality steel with very good workmanship all around. These were worth the price. I wouldn’t normally say this, but I’m actually looking forward to our first big snow to give the skids and machine a try!
Love the conceived, designed, built in the USA pedigree this product (keep US manufacturing strong). As a former CNC machinist and programmer, Manufacturing Engineer, and Engineering Manager, I appreciate the quality of the product.
Yahoo has a size limit on picture attachments (I think of 20MB) so my second email will have the rest of the pictures I took.
Thanks and good luck.
Craftsman 24837 AND Craftsman 486.248371
Craftsman: Model #: 536.811650 | Item# ASC2475-A: | 2″ Slot Spacing (set of 2 skids)
Item# SPC0300: Spacers (Set of 4)
I was very impressed with the construction and welding. I had to use 2 spacers per side to obtain clearance due to the housing being recessed where the skids mount. The width of the spacers are about 1/8” too wide. I was still able to use them. I just cranked the bolts down and they eventually flattened the housing slightly without issue. Not a perfect fit, but worked none the less. I look forward to the next batch of snow (I’m sure no one says that!) so I can not worry about my snow blower catching on the uneven pavement anymore. Great product and concept. Wish they were around years ago!
I am including some pictures of the install for your reference.
