    hey guys, FWIW...
    Kage Innovation has a redesigned website with a new longer version of the kage pusher and plow video. some of the dialog is "corny" ( no offense michael) but it's a good video depicting what the kage can do . this year there is a tractor version also


    EDIT PS watch the whole video because as you start watching you'll probably notice they're not pushing the snow in the most effective way, back and forth to opposing ends of the lot..it kind of looks like someone just learning to push with all the windrows of snow in the open lot....but they explain why that is towards the end
    the Kage is also redesigned with bolt on side panels

    that's pretty cool. but bobcats don't go 65 down the freeway to the next job. you need to make a unit like that but for a truck.

    Thats a really cool idea, an angling box pusher :D However, the first few seconds where he refers to "snow warriors" ..... I could have done without listening to that section haha

    $2100 for just the pusher part?....If so, what does the whole setup cost?. How long have you been running one? And have you ever had a problem with the cage/pusher part coming off while stacking? Thanks

    just the kage attachment is 2100.00 i am using 9 ft boss skid steer plows (trip edge versions) that i buy here locally for 3100.00 i have seen some boss 9ft skid plows recently on Ebay for 2600.00 (new). you probably think 5200.00 is alot but compared to comprably priced trip edge pushers it's in the ballpark but with extra features. if you look through the site i think there is still a demo of how the kage hooks to the plow and the cam locks won't allow it to come off unless the bucket is almost completely uncurled.(that
    's how you remove it so fast)
    this will be my third winter with the kages. they are powdercoated blue and mine look almost as nice as the day they arrived. i have the older version with the welded on side plates and haven't tweaked them yet but my guys are union operators so they are pretty good anyway.... but it's a beefy unit,

    Really corny, but like you said, it's a cool idea.

    I'm lost, the video was alright but I casn't see any use to the Kage system. The tractor system is a complete joke, why would I buy that when I can buy a wingplow.

    Maybe if you had a "snow warriors" mentality you'd understand. :D

    ...More like a snow PIMP.

    That Kage has its applications I guess-just dont forsee myself buying one.

    Yea thats what I was thinkin. Whats stoping the kage from poping off if the edge happens to hit a bump or curb? Even with down pressure.

    Thats a pretty neat concept.

    I think its pretty cool, it kinda fixes the problem that I always had, never seeming to always have the right attatchment for every job. Sometimes a blade is great but a pusher would cetainly speed up the job once you've done all the trimming around curbs.

    it works for my applications ..ie: mfg plant with lots of dock doors that i need to remove the kage and back drag....the wing plow is neat too but how much is it? not that this is a huge deal but alot more moving parts to fail

    just found this vid of a wing plow http://www.degelman.com/index.php?p=Speedblade

    this particular one looks fragile and no trip edge..what would happen to those wings if you hit a sewer lid? not sure how i would back drag dock doors with the wings open..it'd be too wide
