    What sized SS?

    Personally, I think the SpeedWing would be destroyed on a SS of pretty much any size.

    Even the 810SS model didn't hold up well to a Toolcat.

    Lol,the Speedwing will not work.

    The 810 or 8100 or whatever they call it won't work.

    Good question, lol.

    I have no experience with Kage, but they seem like good plows\pushers.

    I've been very happy with the LiveBoxx.

    I wish I had gone with an 8611SS and would recommend that, but since DD stopped making 8611's...................

    The only thing I have seen of a kage is the ones that were at the auction where I bought my 2 blizzards and sectional. Most of the blizzards and sectionals were in decent shape but kages were bent up and most had been welded on.

    Knowing who owned them and ran them, it's hard to say if they're poorly built or if it was strictly operator abuse.

    A 272 should handle a 10' pusher without much of a problem. Get a boss plow and the kage pusher and save a little cash

    I have a 810 SS. I have run it for the past 8 years with zero damage or problems. I'm not sure what the concern about weight is my truck weights in a 13k plus and I have been running a 810 on that! The other trucks are 10k with no problems. My buddy runs one on a cat 908 loader no problems. When using it remember it's a snowplow not a bulldozer. I watch s guy run a Kage on a cat 262 after one season the plow was junk so worn and welded three times! I have watched guys destroy plows in one season and others like me run them for years(still using a 2000 810 as s spare. Just food for thought.
