    If you don't know maybe you shouldn't offer advice. 50hp hence the 50 in the model number. Yes it will push an 8 footer

    I wanna say the video on the Kage website is with an RC50...could be a slightly larger model but I think so. They have a rep on here who is great with questions check out Kristin Stephan if you have any other questions.

    We run the same setup just different manufacturer on our RC50 and yes, it is the perfect attachment and size for that machine.

    The Kage video has an SR80 pushing a Kage System.

    I have a PT60 with an 8ftkage system, and it handles it just fine. If I still had my RC50, I would run an 8ft Kage on it as well with out hesitation.

    In fact, my 8ft Kage replaced an 8ft Arctic Sectional and my 60 operator is extremely happy with my purchase of the Kage.

    Especially if you are plowing with the storm, you will be fine. Eight inches of wet snow is another story. I had a blizzard 810 on an rc 60 and it worked fine.
