Who here uses a Kanga mini?

I’m in the market for a new “wheeled” mini skid. The 8 series seems like the ticket
Any information based on experience with these machines is much appreciated.

As a side note. We are not interested in the articulating loaders. We prefer stand on machines

It's a great simple machine built like a tank! I've had the original one's as well. Love mine, as a matter of fact I'm ordering another one. Maybe we can get 2 for better pricing.

On the paper the lift capacity of the Kangas is a joke compared to the competition but what about your real world observation, is it really that tippy?
I would love to have an 8 Series, the way they are built - fabulous simple and sturdy, while the non charged 4 cylinder diesel is the sweet topping. I would expect that machine to run a lifetime in a one man Show. The last loader you buy in your life.

I run an old 5 series. Limited in lifting but I can go places other machines might not. I also run near bald tires so it’s pretty grass friendly. Not so great for traction some times. I can pick it with my grapple and drop it into the bed if needed. Have also lifted it over fences to otherwise inaccessible yards. Ground clearance blows so it can get stuck fairly easily. But it’s not hard to get unstuck either.
