 Type of metal for snowblower skids

Have to weld up some metal to the
bottom of my tractor mounted snow
blower skids. Looks like originals
measured 1/2 inch thick by 1 inch
wide and looks like they were flat
bar stock that had been shaped and
tacked to the mounting plate. Anyone
have any recomendations on what type
of bar stock to replace them with.
I'm thinking just going with hot-
rolled A-36...but wondered if anyone
else has any better ideas.
Thanks,
geo.

Hot rolled A-36 should be fine for residential use. For business use, I would recommend AR 400. That is a wear resistent material that requires carbide tooling to be able to even drill a hole. Road plows use that stuff. Another place is prison bars. It work hardens when a hacksaw is used.

Depending on room some companies will use cast iron.
