I've got and older rear blade (3 pt blade), Ford I believe and I'm trying to find some kind of skid shoes I can mount on it to keep the gravel out of the ditch.

Can not find much on internet that will work.

Any one know of where a guy can get a pair?

I use a set of sway bar mounting brackets. Have to oblong the holes about 1/4". Gives me about 3 -4 years of use. I plow about 4 gravel driveways a year in S.E. Michigan. Cheap and easy to remove to plow the 6 other driveways I plow.

Split a piece of 2 1/2 or 2" galvanized pipe from end to end, weld two tabs w/holes to line up with 2 of the blade bolts. Remove the bolts, slip the pipe over the blade and replace the bolts. This covers the entire blade and keeps it from diging in if there is a high center crown.

When I sold my old loader I saved the rear mounting brackets. I later bolted them to my scraper blade to hold the round shoes from TSC. Works like a charm!

 Pipe and $56 skid shoe.... in reply to South Dakota Ron, 11-13-2011 20:34:23  
Called the local plow dealer in Rapid City, SD and had my wife pick up a pair of heavy duty skid shoes. I thought they were $56 per pair, WRONG that's &56 each.

I'll have a friend weld on a pipe to mount them in the back corners of the blade.

The brand was "Sno Way".

Thanks for the imput gentlr men.

Maybe they need to drop the S from the name, and call them "No Way" with that price :-).

We had a snow plow that was given to us on our old farm truck. It didn"t have any shoes on it, so dad took an old leaf spring and cut the ends off of it about 6" long or so then used the rolled end as the leading edge. Worked like a champ and it was all stuff we had laying around.

I agree with Ken that they are hard to come by when not already connected to a blade. Probably best to fab your own. The meyers shoes are round so you could made a bracket with a pipe that attaches to the blade then slide it over the meyers shoes then use the washers or pin system for adjustment. Prior owner of one of my snowplows used engine valves instead of pins. Farmerized looking but it works.
