Massey 2360 Snowblower Attachment
Hi Bob & Happy New Year.
We finally got a bit more snow and a chance to try the new skids. They installed perfectly on our Massey Ferguson 2360 front mount snow blower. I drilled one extra hole on each side of the blower to accommodate a 3rd bolt. Slides very nicely and really saves the bottom cutting edge of the blower. Very happy and thanks for the help selecting the best model.
(feel free to use this as a testimonial on your website if you like)

Just a quick note, I received the skids Saturday afternoon and put them on on Sunday. They fit perfectly and look great. I’ll send along a picture if you like and a testimonial once we get another snow fall.

Sounds good and 10-4 on the grade 5 or 8 bolts. I think I’d like the black powder-coated ones. I’ll proceed with the order from the link you sent. By the way, I live in Ontario, Canada but it looks like you ship internationally so that’s ok eh?

Being that you’ve got 190 lbs, and you’re trying to float this over gravel, you need more surface area. I’d recommend the CUT24 for Kubota, which can be seen in this link:
Kubota’s have two different bolt patterns, both are on this skid. Bolts not included, I highly recommend grade 5 or grade 8.
The skids have two different tips, a narrow and a wide tip. That way you can dial in the machine to your exact conditions. I have a few that are powder-coated. Or you can get unpainted, which come right off my welding table. Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for the fast response!
Please find attached a picture of the tractor and blower. The blower is 48″ . The specs say it weighs 190 lbs and the sub-frame attached to the tractor is 90 lbs (I believe this part is supported by the tractor). I live in the country so it’s all gravel driveways and grass. The longest driveway I do is probably 400-500 yards. I do 5-6 driveways for neighbours and the existing skids (located behind the unit) are terrible in the unfrozen surfaces…

Hi Andy, thanks for the email. How wide is your blower? About how much does your machine weigh? What surfaces are you on: concrete/asphalt, or gravel/grass? Can you send me a photo of your tractor/blower combination? I. Looking to get a feel of what kinds of forces we are dealing with. Based on that, I may recommend the CUT24 series.

Wondering if you could help me with a compatibility question. I have a compact utility tractor with a front mount snow blower - Massey model # 2360. From what I have read on different forums and looking at pictures, the body is pretty much identical to the Kubota BX5450 blower (apparently the frames may well have been made by the same manufacturer). I will attach a picture of side of mine below. The skid for that model is the PRO2425-A and it appears to be available with different slot sizing. I have triple checked the hole measurements on mine (centre to centre) and it measures exactly 2 1/8″. Unfortunately, that’s not one of the available sizes. Rather than trying to widen a hole, I wondered about the skid model PRO0275-A (2.75″ slot) or the PRO0310-B (3″ slot) whereby I would simply drill another hole to accommodate the skid bolt. Do you think this would be OK? It doesn’t appear that the spacer would be needed, but if you think it would be a good idea, I will get as well.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
