    Default Rear blade

    Does anyone know if shoes can be purchased for a 5' rear
    Woods blade?

    In the brochure for the Woods blades, they show shoes as
    an option on the 7' blades, but not the 5' or 6', so
    obviously Woods themselves don't sell them.

    Just wondering if anyone has shoes on a 5' blade and,
    if so, where they were purchased.

    Thanks.

    I bought a pair at an auction for $40 to mount on a 7' rear blade... I ended up selling the blade, but still have the shoes.

    I'll measure the slot later, they should work on any blade as long as you have 'holes' at the bottom of your moldboard to mount these...

    You can have them for what I paid plus shipping if you're interested.

    I priced the shoes that are mounted on my Ford 8' Rear blade and almost fell down... $85..... EACH! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/frown.gif[/img]

    TonyC,

    They are talking about skid shoes. These allow the cutting edge of the blade to run just off the surface.

    Hmmm...that's a new one on me. Do you mean if I used these on my blade, I could plow snow off of my driveway without having the blade edge scrape across my $$$$$$ blacktop? Anyone have a picture or a website that sells them where I can see them?

    John,

    Sold if Snowman does not want them. Just send me an email message with the particulars.

    Yes, it appears that most of the manufacturers do not offer skid shoes on the smaller blades.

    John - thanks for the offer, but I don't have any place on the
    blade to bolt them into; there are no holes in the moldboard
    or the blade itself (other than the bolt holes to bolt the
    moldboard onto the blade).

    It does answer another question that I had, which was how
    do the shoes attach to the blade.

    Anyway, since I first posted that question, I bit the bullet and
    had the driveway paved, so my need for the shoes is not as
    great anymore.

    Thanks again for the offer.

    I guess I'm still not clear on the purpose of these shoes. Would they not help to protect a paved driveway when plowing snow, or is the use of a normal blade safe enough?

    Yes, they are primary used to protect a hard surface for snow removal. Similar to what you see on plows mounted on the front of a truck.
