    You wouldn't believe me if I told you. It's an oldie. I was under the impression that they were fairly standard. That is the way they list them on ebay anyway. Thanks.

    Aren't blade runners fairly standard?

    Hmmm.... maybe you need to be more specific about what your looking for... what type/size plow is it... what are you plowing...

    Does the plow have a location to mount shoes???

    If not then just buy some plow shoes, and fab a mount that will work... Most shoes are similar in how the mount, and there are not many styles that you have to choose from...

    I take it the plow is a rear mounted plow on a tractor???

    Thanks for the input. I'm not entirely commercial yet. My drive is gravel as are most out here in the country where I live. I have no ambition to go into town yet. Maybe next year. Therefore, I need shoes. Thanks again, I'll go a barefootin in town on asphalt and concrete if and when I get there.

    Yes I have a couple of mounts: 1 3/8" I.D. I could just buy a pair, but thought maybe one of the many resourceful members here might have whipped them up homemade for less.

    No, this old John Deere we had while farming carried a large Balderson blade on the three point rear mount hitch. Therefore, the majority of my snow management and removal has been at the wheel of this awesome rig. It was also good at draggin friends out of ditches. Since then I've removed snow with endloaders, small bucket tractors, and skidsteers.
