- The Advantage
What are the two biggest hassles with installing large quantities of snow plow stakes?
- Carrying the stakes
- Placing them into hard ground
Kage Innovation's Snow Staking System eliminates these hassles and more.
Carrying stakes with a Kage Quiver makes each indivual more productive by reducing the number of refill trips and helps to ensure that the individual isn't skimping on the number of stakes used. Without the Quiver, the alternative is for the individual to fill their pockets with stakes. These individuals might hesitate to place that one last stake in a crucial position if they have to return to the truck because their back pocket is empty. The result could be costly - damaged turf, landscaping or anything else when spring arrives.
Inserting a stake
- One individual can now install over 100 stakes without going back to the truck to refill pockets time and time again.
- The Kage Quiver features long adjustable straps, making it comfortable to wear. Because of this feature, it can be fitted over bulky clothing, even heavy winter coveralls and jackets. The double strap feature allows you to wear it over your shoulder, or strap it to your leg and waist. Since the Quiver has double straps, it stays secure to your leg and doesn't flap around while you walk, ensuring that the stakes stay inside, and don't fall out when you walk or bend down.
Inserting fiberglass or plastic stakes can prove to be a hassle when using competitors' meager insertion tools. The Kage Pounder uses a 3 lb. slide hammer to drive a pointed steel tip into the ground. Unlike other insertion tools this does not require you to stomp it in with your foot; because you pound it in, the straight downward force does not easily bend the tip. If the tip becomes worn, or if it bends or breaks, it is replaceable. You can also customize the tip based on the size of the snow stake you prefer. The tips are available in 3 sizes; 1/4", 5/16", 3/8".
- The Kage Pounder makes it easy to obtain the right depth for the snow stake, and since you pound the hole, you are able to pound a straight hole resulting in a straight stake.
- This system is faster than battery powered drills which require constant charging in cool weather.
- Proper installation of snow stakes is important to keeping your sites looking good curb to curb all winter and damage free when spring rolls around. Properly installed stakes also help prevent equipment damage and costly repairs during crunch time.
Use the right stake. Don't be fooled by the up - front seemingly inexpensive "irrigation" flags, or painted
wood lath. Neither of these products are easy, and both will "shrivel" and become eliminated at the first sight
of a snow storm!
These stakes are made of a hollow plastic polymer, and are engineered to stay flexible and rebound even in sub-zero temperatures. Experience says that you can never completely avoid touching the stakes while trying to plow the lot. With these, you can actually drive right over them, and 90% of the time they will rebound back, and even be reusable the next season!
