    Anyone ever use the Snow Wolf Fast Tach? How is it and how much $$ is it? Looks just like the Kage system>

    Haven't used either. The Kage is heavier duty it's a Falls plow theSnow Wolf is a Meyer/Diamond

    Pretty sure that snow wolf pays royalties to Kage for similar design. They have some agreement. We do use to 1 Kage plow with their box attachment and it works well. We also have a snow wolf plow only. I would say that the Kage seems to be a little stronger but it also could be the operators in each machine.

    We run 2 Snow Wolf Fast Tachs and like them. They seem to rust quick though.

    I have owned a snow wolf and seen the kage in person. The kage is a stronger plow but the snow wolf is not pos. The snow wolf was MUCH stronger than my bobcat plow. To be honest I think I like the snow wolf better just because it is a simpler design than the kage.

    Get what from? That the Snow Wolf is a Meyer? Or the Kage is heavier duty?

    Thanks Guys for your input. Went and seen one today. Last years model and the dealer wants $5,300.00. I laughed and told him to take care!

    I'll admit I haven't really kept up, but at one time Snow Wolf was making the plow and Kage the pusher attachment.

    Pretty sure that Kage took over both and is selling them as a system now.

    At one time, the SnowWolf was just a rebadged Kage.

    And I don't think Meyer\Diamond has had the trip edge plow out long enough to be SnowWolf since they started selling them as SnowWolfs.

    I could be mistaken though.

    It's a 8 foot snow wolf. He said the price is going up a few hundred if I wanted this years model.

    The blade looks similar but from there back looks different. I thought Stonebrooke equipment owned Snowwolf. As for Kage vs Snowwolf, the Kage has some subtle but key improvements.

    Are you just saying they look similar to these others? The tires I knew were pre-exhisting.
