Kanga Kid TK216

Recommended Posts

Anybody own or use a Kanga Kid TK216? Im thinking or getting a machine that can tow the chipper around on rough ground and shift timber. It needs to be light enough and small enough to fit in the back of a 130 so I can still tow a chipper or trailer. Are these machines up to the job or is there a better alternative?

Boxer skidsteer, we have one and its worth its weight in gold. You should look at the 322 ( i think) or 325 diesel. Will fit in the landy for sure.

the kanga has a real poor lifting capacity mate. my boxer 427 lifts about 750kg and still doesnt feel enough

On a site, i reckon my Boxer 427 does the work of 3 men easily, ive used it in woodland on fellings to stack 10 foot lengths upto 2 feet in diameter, we have done large tree dismantles and it just makes life sooooo much easier.

13k is a bit but i thought that at first, but i would never sell mine now.

 

Have a look at the Vermeer SC range, now they are expensive!!!!!!

 

The attachments you can get for it also are vast, if your into landscaping it must be an even better asset.

Gibbon- what about a mini digger with a grab- heres mine at work extracting some timber from a wood. the big sycamore log is probably at its max.

Its won't fit in the back of the landy but its worth bringing another vehicle to the job (or tow it to job in the trailer then load trailer with timber and pick digger up later) You can get a decent mini for £6-7000 plus grab at £600. Its great for flinging brash into piles and also pulling brash out of rivers if you do much embankment work. Also easy to hire out for other work. I have a postbanger and hydraulic auger for mine and it makes it a very versatile machine. I find the fact that its 360 slew coupled with the longer reach makes it better for brash/timber work then a skidsteer type machine. 597661cd57969_DSCF54511.jpg.b4d93a3afe18343a03a92cc5c0b1334c.jpg
