  3 Questions
Q: I have a 42" JD blower for my LT180 tractor ... will i need the adapters for the roller skids?
by Mitch from New Jersey on September 23, 2013

A: Mitch - Roller Skids are not really designed for use on tractor mount snow blowers. Roller Skids should only be used on walk behind snow blowers.
by Bob, Product Expert
Q: I have a Honda 1132 with 2.38" spacing, any for this model?
by VG from Massachusetts on March 09, 2013

A: You can use these, but you will need the adapters in order for them to fit. Below is the link to the adapters for the the Roller skids.

Roller Skids Adapters
by Bob, Product Expert
Q: Have a Simplicity #1691900

has holes drilled apart exactly 2 12" center to center to mount the skids.

I see the Rollar Skid unit fits 3"......
any alternatives to using these on my machine?

by Larry Drew from Pennsylvania on May 21, 2011

A: There is an MTD universal set of composite skid shoes you could use. The Roller Skids are also coming out with an adapter as well that is not yet available that will allow for the use of these shoes to fit just about any snow blower. If you could sit tight, these should be coming available towards August/September.

Thanks,

So Far, So Good
This is a follow up to my first post on 12/4/13. After several uses, my wheel modification is working great! The steel tires I made from 2" conduit are working as I had hoped and do not seem to be marring the asphalt or concrete surfaces. They also have not shifted on the plastic wheels, so the fit is more than tight enough without any need for gluing them to the wheels. I also have not experienced any lock up of the wheels when the housing gets filled with snow and ice. I see no reason... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Features, Exceeded Expectations

Not Good!
I used them exactly three times in frigid heavy snow conditions. They did not hold up. To bad its a good idea but the durability is just not there.. I would NOT recommend them, period.
Pros: Looked Good But
Cons: Durability, Unreliable, Freeze Up Easily And They Will Not Hold Up

Great Idea, But......
The roller skid is a great idea for replacing the skids on a snow thrower. The material that the housing and wheel is made of is a durable product and helped to keep the purchase cost down. As were many others though, I was concerned with the fact that the plastic wheels will wear quickly, but I came up with a fix that I think will solve that problem. Using a piece of 2" steel conduit, I cut two 1 5/8" wide "tires" which I then lightly hammered onto the wheels for a nice,... more

Froze And Turned Into Skid Plate
These suck. Right wheel froze and just drug along, now it's flat spotted and rolls like an egg. Useless now, so off they cam. One snow and done. Oh wait, I can get a $10 set of replacement wheels! Not a chance. Waste of $30
Cons: Durability, Expensive, Unreliable

Did Not Last Long
The first day of use, they worked great. Happy to have rollers on bare concrete and they seemed to jump sidewalk cracks well. However, on day two, one wheel froze, and the wheel scuffed flat right through the wheel rim. Day three, the bottom section holding what's left of the wheel broke off entirely. So, I'm going back to skids not as elegant, but more reliable. These rollers are nice idea, but this design did not hold up to use.
Pros: Features
Cons: Durability

Superb Product
This product is awesome. I just installed and used these the first time today. I had 8" of snow and with these skids, my snow blower just glided along. And as I write this it is snowing like mad out so I will be using them again tomorrow. Some folks mentioned that they had issues with snow clogging the skid and thus jamming the rollers. The precaution I took against this is when I installed them a couple days before the storm, I sprayed the rollers good with WD-40. This seems to have been... more

Wish I'd Invented These
After replacing my driveway in '05, I had the contractor put what he called a "California Finish" on the concrete. Essentially, they dragged a broom across the surface to give it a lightly grooved finish. It looks very nice. However, here in Northwest Indiana, this finish is very rough on snow removal equipment. Plastic snow shovels are reduced to 2/3's their original size as the finish acts as a rasp on everything that comes into contact with it. This has been true with the skids... more
Pros: Features, I'd Buy It Again, Durable, High Quality
Cons: A Little Difficult To Install Not Much Room For Wrench Rotation

Snow Thrower Skid Plates With Wheels
Great idea, good product, a little high in price for something that is not a direct fit. Had to purchase the adapter kit for my Sears blower. Simple to install and works great. Will let you know how long they last. I did purchase an extra set of wheels.
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Expensive

Inexpensive Wheels
These look great.

I have installed one replacement wheel using a standard 2" white plastic caster wheel to see how it stands up relative to the original.

Will report how they work after use.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Standard 2 inch caster wheels fit perfectly,
