    I am selling my used 8' kage system for a skid steer. has quick couplers for bobcat brand machines ( or anything that these fit...). plow is 5 years old, used as a backup for 2 then front line for 3. have original cutting edge for it with minimal wear, currently has a poly cutting edge on it. both come with plow. pressure washed and fluid filmed regularly, always kept inside during summer. I also have a spare oscillation plate that is included. These plows are built like dozer blades, It might have some surface rust but it still has a lot of life left in it...

    $3,750.00 OBO save big over new... I will deliver locally for free, farther for a fee call to discuss, I have skids to help load if you are coming to pick it up.

    I am getting rid of this because I no longer need it, I switched the current contract to a truck instead of leasing a machine and using this plow.

    call me at 847-321-8261 for questions

    How did the S250 handle this system? I have a CAT 226B currently, which I know is smaller than the s250, but wondering how it may handle this 8' setup. Would like to upgrade skid in another year or so to a bigger CAT.

    The 250 handled it very well... Also depends. a lot on the tires you have and what kind of snowfall... If its a real wet heavy snow you might not be able to push a full box... Just lift it and dump some, or get a running start. Powdery snow you will have no problems....

    I've had this setup on a s-185 before.... Just be carefull with the smaller machines because the plow sits out front so much that with the 185 it would sometimes come off the rear tires, like I said the kages are a very heavy duty, heavy plow... While you might be able to push it no problem, you might run into a problem lifting it with the Kage attached to full height...

    Anything special on the Bobcat hydraulics that would make it not work on a New Holland ls-180. Please pm me with reply and bottom dollar.

    How does the plow backdrag?

    Great... What's nice is because the Kage pivots it allows you to put a **** load of pressure right on the cutting edge if needed...back drags just like a regular skid plow

    Why do people say "cash". It has to be cash anyway. Who takes a check for a used item? Saying cash doesn't really change anything. Am i wrong? Sorry, rant over. Free bump tho!

    not true, I would take a certified check called into the bank to verify, I would also tkae a credit card... there is a much bigger reason for taking cash however....besides the fact that you can verify the funds immediately...
