Warn Provantage Tapered plow shoes

    Has anyone had any trouble out of the shoes on the tapered provantage Warn plow? I plow a long gravel drive and at first I ripped the brackets right off. Called Warn and emailed them pics. They said they will send me a new blade. I rebuilt the shoe brackets out of necessity because it snowed. Now, I've worn completely through a shoe and winter is only half over. The wear bar sure is wearing fast to and it hasnt even touched the ground.
    I know some will say dont even use shoes but when I angle the blade the side closest to the ATV hangs much lower than the other. So it would be impossible to just raise the blade a bit in the angled position.

    can you post up a pic of what your talking about?

    can you maybe only run your shoe on the angle side?
    that way when 1 is worn down you can then put the other one in its place?

    just a idea

    and that is exactly what I did!! I welded 1/4 angle iron on for a base and then made a box out of 1/4 angle iron. Stuck 2 cast iron western round plow shoes in there. I bet those wont wear out.

    Not sure what you want a pic of. The repair?

    i had stainless welded to the bottom of my shoes[non prov]
    also had a blade made from cutter bar steel[1/4"]3-1/2 " wide
    and i drilled holes in the center so it can be reversed for twice the life.
    did the same to the shoes on my simplicity snowblower.

    just a pic of your blade and where shoe was mounted up.

    I don't have a warn plow so I was just trying to get a better idea of what your problem was.

    Pics are very helpful sometime

    any ways glad you got it worked out.
