    Finally went and picked up the 26 series
    Love the plow, truck handled it nice
    Spreader is top of the line equipment

    Question is
    The shoes have spacers, I want to be 2/16th of an inch off the ground
    Just barely holding it level

    Or should I go strictly concrete to blade?
    I don't want to have to do repair work

    I'm new so give me best look/safety spot to be

    Trash the skid feet for anything but gravel. Interferes with the Down Pressure's ability to cut in to hard pack.

    Why do you want to be 1/8" above? Adjust so the blade just hits the ground, by about one washer. Do it in a flat parking lot, not in a road/drive. They have a crown so water doesn't pool. Parking lots tend to be more flat. You can use a flashlight behind it, or put a washer or two under each shoe... what ever.
    You want to wear the blade down to the shoes. Once or twice a season check it. Many times the center wears more than the ends, then lower blade so the ends meet center for wear.
    I don't see how shoes interfere with scraping. If they did, you would see the two shoes leave marks in the snow/ice.
