To run skids, or not to run skids, that is the question.

    I've got a question for those of you that plow with an ATV. Do you run skids on your plows on driveways or not? I have some paver drives, as well as some paved drives, and I wanted to get your feelings on it.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    I would say no, mainly because the plow doesnt weigh enough to hurt the pavers.

    Thanks Premier, I'd like to get more feelings on the topic though, especially from those of you that plow with ATV's.

    I wouldn't always say that. The cutting edges are more narrow (width and length) and can dig in easier. That's why they clean ashphalt better than a regular snowplow.

    Anyone else run an ATV w/plow? Do you run skids on paver driveways? I just don't want to damage the drives, but I want it to look good when I'm done too.
