    the product looks intersting but the video is so fast and jerky it just doesn't do justice. Its hard to see how things work on the blade when there are so many popups, rollbacks and everything is speeding by. Those skidsteers are flying by.

    I like the ideas of the design and the versitility but does it have enough bulk and how to the endplates work if they hit something/go over speedbump?

    midtownpc- The SnowKage product is designed to be least ‘bulky’ as possible to help reduce weight. Since the plow is really the “backbone” of the whole system, the SnowKage frame can rely upon the strength of the plow behind it.

    The side panels are elevated from the ground by flexible polyurethane skids, which take the abrasion of the plowing surface, and offer some flexible dampening when hitting obstacles such as curbs or speed bumps.



    Also, if the panel gets hit enough to bend it (light pole, retaining wall etc) it is bolt – on replaceable. However, we have not yet sold a side panel replacement for this reason.



    I hope this helps!

    I wonder two things.

    Is there a sub frame for a 4000 series John Deere?

    Are there dealers in my area?

    It seems like a good setup. If anyone has one I'd like to find out about their experiances good and bad.

    I bought one last season and I have no complaints about it. I bought the 9 footer for my A300 skidsteer. The videos says it all. The one good thing is you can really stack a lot of snow with it.

    DeVries- Unfortunatley we do not have a subframe for your machine yet. Our closest dealer to you would be Regional Tractor Sales Ltd. located in Freelton. The person you would want to contact is John Hepburn. There number is 905-659-1094 or email rtsl@bellnet.ca.

    We have quite a few customers on here. If you search 'Kage' you can see all of their feedback. Please feel free to contact me with any further questions or concerns. kristin@kageinnovation.com.

    wcb607a- Thanks for the good word:)
