Basic snow pushers usually lack the ability to backdrag snow away from garage doors, loading docks etc. The patented Kage System allows you to backdrag just as you would with a straight blade angle plow. Get as close to the obstacle as you feel comfortable with, drop the blade and back up. Have long runs to backdrag? No sweat, you can even angle the blade as you drive in reverse to direct the inevitable spillage to one side. In previous articles we have addressed some important design features of a snow pusher. Previous articles covered: “Snow Pusher That Angles”, a “Snow Pusher That Trips”, a “Snow Pusher That Oscillates”, and a “Snow Pusher That Scrapes”. In this article we will talk about why a snow pusher needs to be able to backdrag.
Snow pushers are widely used as the ‘implement of choice’ by the snow removal professional today. There are many varieties of snow pushers on the market today, and Kage Innovation has created the ultimate snow removal tool. The Kage Snow Plow Box System combines the straight blade angle plow, with the snow pusher, into one incredibly efficient tool. Not only can you turn the angle plow into a snow pusher without ever leaving the cab of your machine, but we have designed this ‘snow pusher’ with 5 other important features necessary when doing snow removal. In previous articles we have covered the “snow pusher that angles”, “snow pusher that trips”, and “snow pusher that oscillates”. In this article we will explain why it is so important that a snow pusher can scrape, and how the Kage System does that so well.
