It’s hard to believe it, but depending on where you live you could have snow in 7-9 weeks. Sorry, I know you don’t want to hear it. But if you want to save more driveway rock and stop scalping your yard along the driveway, while pushing snow, consider bucket ski edge protectors.
The Pocono Metal Craft Tractor Bucket Ski Edge Skid Protector allows your bucket to glide 3/4″ above grade, saving your grass/gravel/soil/etc. from being displaced. Capable of leaf removal without harming turf. Great for pushing snow and not scalping your rock or lawn. Measures 12″ L X 4.5″ W. Comes in a set of two skis which are recommended for buckets up to 48″ wide. Three bucket skis are recommended for buckets wider than 48″. Available in John Deere Green and Safety Yellow. Made in America.
If it saves you 2 hours of yard repair in the spring, they’ve paid for themselves.
