    I have looked, demoed and seen them. Talked with them and I am pretty certain I will order one tomorrow of Monday. They quoted me a 9 and 10 ft. I have an S650 Bobcat. No real big runs at all.

    Curious though is 9 more manuvable than the 10 or spend an extra $200 and go with the 10 vs the 9??

    Thanks

    No trailer. Longest drive is about 10 minutes from shop and about ten minutes b/t locations.

    If your not going to trailer it and for only $200 more I would get the 10 foot. an extra foot each pass adds up

    I have a 9 ft kage with an A300 and its probably the perfect size. With wet heavy snow, I can definitely feel our machine working and traction starts to become an issue. With light fluffy snow its no problem. If you don't get heavy wet snow then go with the 10 fter.

    Good. I think the ten will be it then for me. Since I am traveling down the road - mostly will be at night, depending on snow event but you guys place any extra reflective tape, stakes etc on the sides? There is a guy here in town that uses a 928G Cat loader with a 14ft snowwolf - right down the road, through town, lifts the pusher up so cars can go under him. Some day it wont be good for him.
