FAQ's

How can Skid Runners help to extend front-end loader cutting edge life?
Skid Runners can help spread wear over a larger area than just the cutting edge. Install Skid Runners on the bottom of the bucket, level with the cutting edge. This ensures that bucket down-pressure is evenly distributed to all wear parts.
