The original post is NOT a review from an actual user, but from the seller or distributor.

1. It's just as easy to install as standard metal skids. Unless the hole centers are different, then the adapter kit is kinda iffy

2. Clean simple design. Looks good.

1. Needs unbiased review from actual users not affiliated with the seller or designer.

2. Questionable durability. How long it will hold up? How does it compare to UHDPE skids?

Snowblower Skids that ROLL

These gadgets are new... but make snow blowing a lot easier! Additionally, they also keep my driveway from getting all scraped up. The biggest problem was that they didn't fit all snowblowers because they are only designed for 2-3/4" 3" bolt centers. But now you can get "Universal Adapter Brackets" for about $15 to allow the Roller-Skid to fit practically any 2-stage machine! You can just rotate these things around to fit practically any bolt locations. They can also be used to put any skid (not just the Roller-Skid) on practically any manufacturer's machine...

Easy to install.
Skids don't grab and pull.
Much easier to maneuver.
No more scratched up surfaces.
No rust stains on the garage floor.
Replacement wheels are available.

Not great on gravel driveways.
