Will the Kage fit on a Boss plow?

Has anyone tried fitting the Kage on a Boss blade or any other blade?

Are you sure about that? Have you used one before or seen it done?

I contacted Kage a few years ago when I got my boss skid steer plow. The saleswoman told me yes. I have also seen it in a video demonstration that Kage put out before. I don't know if they still have the video because they sell their own plow now for the last few years so I am sure they want to sell the whole set-up. For now I use the Boss wings since they work best for my applications.

LOL, there is never a dull moment on here! I called Kage a couple weeks ago and like they said.....yes it will fit. You will need the brackets and drill several holes for those brackets to fit the plow. The price I was quoted to fit an 8ft BOSS skid steer set up was 1800.00 plus shipping and I think that was 346.00. So IMO, if you already have the blade set up buy just the cage end of it. I think if you were to buy them separately you would still be a few hundred bucks ahead.

So does it have to be a skid steer plow ? i know the boss skid steer plow is 30" tall but i have a super duty plow i was going to make into a skid steer plow and its 29" tall... Next question is can it be adjusted to fix a 8'6" plow or does it have to be the 8 or 9 '

The SnowKage is welded solidly into an efficient snow moving tool. No moving parts, electronics or additional hydraulics - simple and tough!
Polyurethane skids are standard (rubber is available for a less expensive replacement). Engineered for the SnowKage, they feature adjustability, and a cavity to prevent premature bolt wear.

SnowKage models are made for 6', 8', 9', and 10' plows; for machines starting at 5,000 lb.
Half sizes can be special ordered.Bar Style and Hook Style are 2 different methods of attaching your SnowKage to your Blade.
Hook style is for skidsteer applications.
Bar Style is for tractor applications, and uses hydraulic functions

With the Kage weighing in at 433 pounds they would have to seriously lighten it up. Replacing the ram on the plow may do to lift it but I am not sure about the tower and frame holding up.
