I don't know if KGet is the thing you want if you want to schedule downloads. 
But this is what you could do:

1. Add all transfers to the KGet list, make sure you're in Offline Mode.
2. Run a (daily) cron job executing

dcop KGet-Interface setOfflineMode false

to disable offline mode and it starts downloading.
At 8 am you could run

dcop KGet-Interface setOfflineMode true

to stop downloading.

But maybe wget is more suited for this purpose, since it's a command line tool 
and easier accessible from a cron job.

Kind regards,
