    We have a 908M, use it 7 days a week, 365 days a year, and gets about 4.5 he's a day on it. What do you want to know?

    Thanks for the reply. I wanted to know if you have any issues running a pusher box on it with the skid steer mount. My cat dealer said it may not work due to the height difference of a skid and loader. This is my first small sized loader. Cat dealer said rear edge or rear of pusher shoe may not touch the ground. What do you run it with in the snow. I was thinking a kage

    I'm not so sure your Cat dealer knows what he is talking about.

    Yeah, not a problem. Handles the boss no problem with no height issue.

    Appreciate it gentleman. Now only decision is an HLA or Kage.

    Kage is simple but less width flexibility on the go. I would go Kage, only because I've seen them.

    HLA all the way. If you go with a Kage, you're stuck with that level of productivity. I know you said you don't have the work for an HLA, but if you pick up more work this year or next, you're stuck with the Kage.

    The HLA is a minimum of 25% more productive than a Kage.

    What size would you imagine would be ideal? I have a 300 unit condo oversized roads and many small parking lots. Was thinking 8-13' or is that too small

    I would go bigger. I bought a 9-15 for my Deere 244, but a lot of others are using 10-16s on theirs.

    I was thinking 8-13 3200w so your saying 9-15 4200w is what you run. Appreciate the help.
