    I've used the shoes on mine most of the time. I believe using them has extended the life of the blade and given it a more even wear pattern. Others differ in opinion. If you do a search on it you'll get a lot of good info, as this topic comes up often.

    I keep them on but use the washers to adjust them high. Once in a while I have to do a stone driveway and I'll take the time to pull the pins and adjust then down. Makes a big difference.

    This topic has been discussed in detail, even a poll.

    I personally use the shoes all the time.
