As winter rears it’s head once again, we’re reminded of the importance of a good snow plow. But, how do you know what size plow and box is the RIGHT size for your equipment and why is it important? You might be thinking, “the bigger, the better”, but there is more to consider when choosing your plow.
There are a few major factors to consider when choosing the right plow and box, such as speed/efficiency, safety, and spaces where you’ll be operating. So, let’s break it down.
You’ve got the equipment, and the jobs are lining up. You don’t want to find yourself unable to take care of business when it comes down to crunch time. The size of your plow is going to need to work in all the areas you will be clearing. Not every job is a wide-open parking lot. Before making your decision, it’s a good idea to make a trip to your sites and evaluate the areas you’ll be clearing, taking things into consideration like: accessibility, curbing, parking spaces, and even the estimated number of passes you would expect to be making to complete the snow removal process. Keep in mind the pace you will want to keep to complete your tasks.
What happens when you can use one product to do the job of many? You make money! Take the popular Kage Snow Storm for example. It’s made in the USA and comes in 10’, 12’, and 14’ widths making it built tough and crazy efficient! With the Snow Storm attached to a wheel loader or backhoe, you can eliminate the need for truck plowing altogether. Easily attach or remove the Kage box from the blade for complete versatility with just the flick of a thumb. Using just this one attachment, you’re able to push, stack, scrape, backdrag, and trim saving you tons of time so you can take on more jobs!
Some other specs on the Kage Snow Storm:
· 36 degree angle snow pusher
· 9” trip edge for safety
· 90 degree trip back
· Clearly visible from cab
If you felt bogged down this winter using your same old plow, consider a Kage system for next year to make your snow removal life more fun AND more profitable. Afterall, Kage products were “overbuilt by design”.
