SKID SHOE ADJUSTMENT
The Skid Shoe mounted on each side of the Header
Housing adjusts the distance scraping is raised above the
surface. When removing snow from an uneven surface or
a gravel driveway, it is advisable raising scraper as high
above the surface as possible to prevent possible damage
to the Snow Auger and to help prevent stones from being
thrown with snow.
On blacktop or concrete, keep the
scraper as close to the scraping surface as possible.
