Never saw it before. I was always worried about flexing at the bottom corner, that is where I see the tears in the body when they go. Give it a whirl. 6 inches of extra clearing is a ton. Just try a 36 vs 42 inch blower and its a big difference! Give it a whirl. The only problem I see is when there is a lot of snow you will have to slow down some more, and it will not clean all the way down. I have a boulder retaining wall on my driveway so it would be a problem. If you just boarder grass it would be worth a try! By the way, they are made up very well. If it were me, I would put a second set of straps on the inside to combat the force rather than just hanging them on the side...

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
