    Do you leave plow feet on or take them off? The only application where these make sense to me is on gravel.Whats up with those thangs?

    well i leave mine on but adjust them to be level with my plow edge i think that it gives it a little more support .

    Another good application is "door stops".

    we don't run with shoes on but we still use them

    we cut off the shoe part and weld heavy duty casters to the shafts,then we pull up to the garage put our wheels on and roll our blades into storage

    Plow shoes are a joke! They don't help on gravel unless it is frozen and if it IS then you don't need shoes. I never figured the shoes were there to support the plow anyhow but to help cut down on wear on the cutting edge.

    I had shoes on mine but i took them off. now they
    hold my garage door open.
    my opinion is they are junk. They serve no
    purpose. I would take them off and through
    them in the corner.

    Thats the first thing that comes off all our plows are the shoes. I like finnegans idea about the wheels on the shoes.
