    Default Skid Shoes for Woods blade

    I just got a price from my local dealer on a pair of skid shoes for my RB72 rear blade. He quoted me $144. Does this sound right? I was kind of shocked. Anyone know of a cheaper price for these or has anyone made a set yet. I would appreciate any advice. Thanks in advance.

    FABEATS,
    I'm hip baby!!! They cost about what --- 25% of the blade?
    What's up with that. If you do find a source please let me know.
    Thanks,
    Nick

    looks like you should try and cut a deal for the shoes when buying a blade. What about those highly polished First Choice blades. Do they have a shoe option? bw

    I WAS LOOKING AT MAKING SOME. I WAS THINKING ABOUT TAKING SQUARE TUBING OF 2 DIFFERENT SIZES SO THAT ONE WOULD FIT IN THE OTHER WITH SOME EASE AND SLIDE IN AND OUT. TAKE SOME ROUND PIPE AND WELD TO EACH SIDE OF THE BLADE AND TAKE ANOTHER PIECE THAT WILL FIT ON THE INSIDE OR OUTSIDE OF IT AND WELD IT TO THE LARGER SIZE SQUARE TUBING. SLIDE THE ROUND PIPE WELDED TO THE SQUARE AND SLIDE IT OVER THE ONE WELDED TO THE BLADE AND DRILL ONE VERTICAL HOLE THROUGH BOTH PIECES SO THAT A PIN WOULD FIT THROUGH AND LOCK THE SQUARE TUBING IN THE UP OR DOWN POSITION. NOW DRILL HOLES THROUGH BOTH PIECES OF SQUARE TUBING IN WHAT EVER INCREMENTS YOU WANT SO THAT YOU CAN LOCK IT IN PLACE A WHAT EVER DEPTH YOU REQUIRE. NOW TAKE THE SQUARE TUBING THAT WILL SLIDE IN AND OUT AND WELD A 3-5'' PIECE OF PLATE ON THE BOTTOM WITH THE FRONT AND BACK EDGES ROLLED UPWARD SO THEY WILL SLIDE ACROSS THE GROUND WITH SOME EASE. I PLAN ON PUTTING THIS TOGETHER AND MOUNTING ON MY BLADE TO GET A CONSTANT DEPTH OF MATERIAL ON MY ROAD I'M BUILDING TO MY BARN. STILL TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT WITHOUT HAVING TO WELD.

    I went ot my local snowplow parts dealer and
    got a pair of skids for western plow (looked like these
    would work best) $25.00/pr.
    They are 1" dia. solid rod w/ about 5" dia rounded shoe
    the shoe is about 3/4" thick and have stack of washers
    to adjust height.
    They work in any direction.
    I welded 2X4X1/4" (overkill) tube 3" long to back side of blade
    after drilling 1" hole in each pc.
    Heavy angle will work too .
    It can be bolted on also.
    I also use these as hitches to pull 2 48" lawn rollers behind tractor
    in spring has about 2' gap but works w/ overlap.
