- The Advantage
The Kage system combines snow plowing and snow pushing into one machine, and one operator. The simple advantages of both methods are now brought together seamlessly by being able to reliably switch from the cab, in seconds.
The angle plow is the fastest, most efficient way to move snow from a surface. Examine how the roads are cleared in your city, for instance. The local municipality uses fixed or reversible plows to push the snow to one side of the road at high speeds. The snow pusher would be useless in this situation. If there is no room for a windrow to the side, however, the obvious next choice is to move the snow forward, where the snow pusher is very useful. It can contain large amounts of snow, and move it in a forward direction. The simplistic design and proven efficiency of the straight blade angle plow, combined with the capability to contain and push snow in one direction gives the operator more reliability, versatility and momentum than ever.
- The regular snow pusher box is less than productive without having another piece of equipment along to do back dragging, scraping, and general cleanup. Not to mention that it will leave trails on both sides once it becomes full of snow.
- The straight blade angle plow by itself is limited in efficiency when there is no snow storage off to the side. Itís also limited to how much snow it can stack, and how high.
- The SnowKage box comes completely off of the plow. This means that it is not hindering the operation of the angle plow when itís not needed. Wing plows that have movable containment wings on the ends are heavy and expensive to repair. One wrong hit on a wing might put the entire unit out of use.
- The Kage system can pull onto site, back drag and windrow away from the building. Then hook onto the SnowKage box, and push out these piles and windrows. Then finish by dropping the SnowKage box and angle plowing the parking lot Ė or any other sequence and combination.
- The angle and trip edge functions of the plow are fully functional when the SnowKage is attached. This means that you can angle your pusher and limit the spillage off to one side after it fills up. This also helps when cleaning out drive circles, or trimming around small islands with a tight radius.
- Imagine the profitability gained by replacing a pusher and a pickup truck with one Kage System. Your sites can look better, faster, with less equipment and manpower. That is the Kage Advantage.
