    Hello I'm looking for some advice about whats the best size to purchase a Kage Snow Fire setup for my Cat 259B3 compact skid loader, 8' or 9' also thinking about putting on a set of Camoplast SD Tracks, do they make a difference?

    You should be able to run a 9' with no issues on power and weight of machine. I am running an 8' on a 226B wheeled skid. Handles it well but could use a little more weight as it get light when stacking.

    I have a 8' and a 9' in stock if you need one. I can ship yet this week. Kage is a great product and because it has a 30 degree angle you would be surprised and how easy it is to control and push.

    We run an 8ft Kage on a CAT 262C skid. We have counter weights on the machine and it seems like a good combo. We use it at a site that has some tight spaces and have been very pleased. In the past we were running 2 pickups at this site and both were replaced by the Kage. The pick ups lost a lot of time in the tight spaces. The 8ft was a good choice for us because of the close quarters. Traction was never an issue.
