    Getting equipment ready for this weeks snow storm.

    This is my new PT80 with my New 10ft Kage system. We have used this Kage on 1 storm so far The operator likes it and it does what they mfg says it will do. This unit replaced a 10ft Arctic sectional, and the jury is still out on which unit is faster.

    I also have an 8ft unit that I bought the same day, and the guys like it alot as well. The 8ft unit replaced an 8ft snow bucket on a heavy condo association route. Thus, plowing times have been cut in half on that route.

    Quite the snow tool.

    Thats a bad axx set up right there, I would love to have a KAGE system, but I have no where to use it. How much are you supposed to get out of this storm? We are in the 8-16" watch for Wed. Thurs. so we will stay pretty busy on that!

    J, awesome setup, I will be also getting a 10' kage system for my 100 at the housing association we do.

    how well does the unit scrape? do the operators leave the arms in float, is it heavy enough that way to clean well?

    Thats my question - leave arms in float - enough weight to scrape the snow?
