    we are going to be ordering a kage in the next few days for one of our skids that currently has a 8' sectional on it. The machine is a 70 hp 7000lb machine is the 9' plow to much for the machine? we never really had a problem with the 8 ft sectional on it last year.

    I have a 10ft Kage on a tractor, great product. I have used it on the case 450. I think u will be fine with the 9ft if you are in light fluffy snow. How far you pushing is also an issue. Do you need to clean between cars/?? Might be to wide.

    the pushes wont be very long, it is going to be used in a hoa that is a series of 10 parking areas with about 10-12 paired houses in each one so its basically pull out the drives which are mostly about 20 feet long then plow the roads/ stack up the snow. The machine is a 236b2 i am probably just going to go with the 8ft kage to be safe. I have a pair of 256c cats but most likely will take them to other sites where the extra power can be better used for some longs runs.
