“5 years ago, I decided to purchase a Kanga and jump into a business with my friend Tony, who has had the Kanga Kid since about 2004. I used to work in the feed lot industry and was just looking for something new.
The Kanga Kid, which my business partner originally purchased when he started ‘Cobmatt Rural Contractors’, is still in good use now. When I joined in, we decided to purchase a second mini loader with more power, the PW628.
The Kanga Kid is still always in use and so practical – instead of having to worry about transport for a tractor, you can just load it up on a 10 x 5 trailer and you can fit all other gear and attachments too. This is a big advantage of the mini loaders.
We do all types of fencing jobs and have been using a 4in1 bucket to clear the fence line, a power head and 3 different types of augers for the post holes together with an extension to be able to drill deeper. Currently we are looking at getting some angle blades. We own a trencher too, which we would like to use more often in the future.
In our business, the Kanga is used to shift soil along the fence line. It is such an easy-to-use and versatile tool with the different attachments. We have previously shifted trees with it too and the Kanga is ideal to do work in peoples house yards, fitting in narrow and tight spaces.
Our Kanga Kid has only had some tyre changes and very little repairs over the years. And last year was the first time, that we had a small hydraulic leakage on our 6 Series loader. Jason from the Service Department was of great help and in general we’ve always had a good experience dealing with both Kanga service and sales staff.
Our decision to purchase a second mini loader was highly influenced by the fact that Kanga is very price-competitive. Deep down always knew we were going to go with another Kanga. But of course, we looked at different options and were actually surprised at how well Kanga performs in terms of value for money, when compared to other mini loaders on the market. You just can’t go past a Kanga.”
