Default Carbide Savers

Just was wondering if anyone has any experience and feedback on the Carbide Saver Dolly System?
carbidesavers.com


I have to take my sled across a long driveway and the carbides are destroying my driveway as well as the garage floor.

Also looking at ski boots like the tracks usa or the skinz ski guards.

SLP makes a nice ski guard not designed to backup but going forward they work great for loading in trailers, driveways, and garage floors.

Great customer service, nice quality product especially compared to the competition, make sure the protection rubber stays on or they chip your spindle, work great on any surface but snow.... You can't turn on snow, and it's extremely hard to install them in the snow. Once on I can drive into my trailer or into the garage nicely, but getting them on in the snow, even a few inches, sucks!

I dont know what sled you have but there is set of rouskis in the classifieds that may work. Just a thought.

Pros: You can drive and steer, easy on the back installing and removing
Cons: you can't rotate your sled to fit into a tight spaces, cost!!!

I picked up two sets $60 each, maybe not as nice but for 1/4 the price I don;t think I am missing out much, my guess there was a IP issue and were pulled off Amazon. If you have access to supplies and the correct tools they should be easy to make.

If your thinking of spending a couple hundred I would look into these https://www.denniskirk.com/rouski/ge...=All+Products& I never used this product but they look like a good idea only down fall is you cant use on multiple sleds.

Also, Have a set of Rouski wheels on the wife's sled......They are easier and better than the carbide savers, but are permanently attached to her sled......Sure does make it easier for her to handle her sled at gas stations and long road running.
