    Well, I bought it back in April, but I keep forgetting to post pictures of it here. I bought it brand new in April this year, and now have a little over 100 hours on it. I am purchasing a 7.5' Boss skid steer plow for it. Its a new Kubota of the L40 series with the grand L cab. I'm excited to start pushing snow with her this year! Here is some pictures from delivery day, she is now all lettered up with the company name and website.

    Did you get down to the Snow and Ice expo this year? There was a companythere with a Kage plow/pusher system that looked pretty interesting to me. They have a setup specifically for the Kubota L40 series. Maybe you could get a demo? http://www.kageinnovation.com/tractor.php

    KAGE system

    My name is Justin and I am the general manager for The Natural Landscape Snow & Ice Division. We are the distributor for Kage for all of New England. That was our booth at the Expo in Marlborough, MA. Just to clarify, all Kage models that we sell come with the crossover relief valve standard and they are already included in the price. For example the 9' model is $5750 with relief valve icluded. Please visit our website www.thenaturallandscape.com/winterto learn more about us or to contact us with any questions about the product. We would be happy to arrange a demo for your machine. Thanks for yout interest.

    Very nice tractor!! Once you drive that you won't go back to a truck. I have to ask, why such a small blade for a big tractor?

    Thanks, its only 32 HP so I think 7.5 is as big as I would want to go. Its got a six foot bucket that has no problem pushing through 5-6 yard piles of dirt, so I figure a 7.5' blade, pushing a few inches of snow, windrowing, with the tires filled and a ballast box shouldn't be any problem at all. I'm really looking forward to plowing with it. I'm installing a 2 way radio in it next week to add into our system with the trucks and office.

    Here is a picture of my new shop from ontop of my pallet racks that I store the plows and salters on, and another of the tractor moving some sod pallets.

    I paid around 28,700 for the tractor with the cab, loader, filled R4 tires, and 72" HD bucket. Not to bad, I find it a lot of machine fore the money.
