how do you like the Kage plow systems after a few years? How are they holding up? Would you buy something different today?
Thanks

The Kage's are the most bulletproof snow removal device I have ever owned, or probably ever will own. I look at all these other pushers with 10 different hydraulic pistons, power wings, etc and say what a nightmare of maintenance. Everyone should own one of these things who does snow removal.

Book to read this winter: The E Myth Landscape Contractor by Michael Gerber and Tony Bass.

I like our kage system thus far. Its our skid. As far as working hours though I try to keep our guys within that 40-50 hour range. I hate OT but sometimes to get work done it is what it is. Me on the other hand - summer I would say easlily 80 hours a week, there are some weeks I push 100. But I am up early, first to job site, last to leave, maybe setting sprinklers different at nursery etc. Winter time - I sleep alittle more but I help my wife with kids breakfast, off to school etc.

Jarod,

The Idea Gallery on the website is absolutely amazing! Thanks for continuing to contribute to the industry and to this thread the way that you do! I hope that you have a GREAT year.

PS - I hope the "Responsibility" sign was not copywrited. I am copying.

Thanks you too.

That poor website went through so many revisions I lost count, but it came out first class.

Use the responsibility quote, it works.

This one works too.....

Wishing everyone a strong 2013. Off to the Mants show in Baltimore tomorrow.
