In today’s urban environment working spaces are becoming smaller and tighter while the cost of labour is constantly on the increase. Solving both of these problems is easy when considering a mini skid steer loader. This compact piece of versatile machinery will allow you to gain hydraulic access to spaces you never thought imaginable.
360 DEGREE VIEW
The operator’s platform boasts a 360 degree view of the surrounding area, which is a great advantage when it comes to safety on the building site. The operator is able to see any other vehicles, materials or people around the vehicle without any dead spots in the visibility. On many sites, space can be limited and having such wide range visibility makes it possible to manoeuvre the machine quickly with no safety risks involved.
The fact that the mini skid steer loader proves to be small in size makes it possible to easily enter the grounds of small residential areas and construction sites. Urban environments mean tight entry points and narrow streets that require a machine that is capable to reach sometimes complex work sites. Not only that, but its size makes it easier and safer to manoeuvre on a smaller site by minimising the risks for everyone around. Kanga Loaders offer optional safety extras such as lights, reverse beeper and horn, if you need to comply with strict safety standards.
The size of the equipment makes it easier to have an efficient, easy to access entry point giving the compact loader operators the ability to access the machine without the requirement to climb over large attachments, which can be physically draining, unsafe and time consuming. Frequently the operator needs to leave the vehicle for a short amount of time to undertake other tasks. The small size and easy to access entry point of the equipment makes it possible to hop on and off quickly and safely.
The mini skid steer loader will also help your company reduce labour costs when it comes to hiring or training professional operators. This machine does not require a license, which means training staff, is easy and cost effective. Utilising a mini loader in your business effectively transfers the impact of manual labour from the workers body to the machine, leaving staff feeling physically fit at the end of the day, and not exhausted by the end of the week.
My original ‘need’ for a mini loader was to shift the impact of landscaping from my body to a machine! Machines don’t have feelings! (although I’ve become so attached to our Kanga’s that I could be swayed on that idea!) So we purchased our first Kanga for lawn and paving installs. The choice of a stand on skid steer was it’s muscle, ease of use and maneuverability. There just wasn’t another machine that came close to this option for our work.
The hop on hop off nature of the Kanga was immediately what i was looking for and it proved its success quickly. I was tired of running wheel barrows all day long and paying my staff to do something that i knew a Kanga would do in half the time. In return it also left myself and staff physically feeling better each day and not burnt out.
