    I'm interested in the Kage system front mounted on a tractor (non loader.) Is anyone running this setup? And if so, how do you like it?

    We're and love it. We have it on a Kubota L5740 with a 10ft Kage.

    That is hydrostatic transmission right? Is the 16mph max speed an issue? Do you drive it between commercial lots or do you use it for residential? I'm curious if a kage system on a tractor could completely replace a plow truck on an "in town" commercial lot route. Also, I'm surprised/impressed that 57hp can handle a 10ft box. Do you often run out of power or traction?
