A Dingo Mini Loader is fantastic for any of your garden or construction works that include earth-moving or evening out soil, or when there’s restricted access that an earth-mover or slip steer can’t overcome. While most mini loaders have wheels, there are a number of different types of Dingo or Kanga mini-loaders, which are great to use if your workspace is sandy or sloppy.
Prior to starting any work, let’s lay out the safety rules. You should always ensure that you are wearing the necessary safety gear, for example, steel cap boots, safety glasses, gloves and protective ear-wear, if necessary. Ensure that liquids like fuel and oil are at the right level, and the fuel cap is safely fixed. Lastly, guarantee that the air filter is free from any garbage or muck.
Mini loaders have a great range of different accessories and attachments, so that they can be used in a variety of situations and on many different projects. The 4-in-1 bucket that is generally found on dingo or kanga mini-loaders is really adaptable, as it can scoop soil or material – usually as much as 125 kilos. It can also open up to get things and edge/back sharp edge regions to make a smooth and level surface on the dirt, mulch or soil.
You can use a trenching attachment to dig or create channels, usually up to 150mm wide and 1 meter down. There’s additionally a connection in the form of rotary hoe, in the event that you need to turn soil over a large area, or a post hole digger attachment that can make holes to 600mm in diameter, 1 meter down or even 2 meters down on the off chance that you utilize an auger attachment or extension. Dingo or kanga mini-loaders are extremely flexible and give you the chance to perform many different jobs, depending on your project or work required.
The difference in a mini-loader is that you stand on the back of the machine to operate it, instead of sitting in a driving seat. There are usually four controls to be found; two to operate the steering component and two to control the attachments or accessories that attach to the front of the digger. It takes some getting used to, but using the levers to steer will come naturally after time. You simply push both levers back to reverse, push both forward to move forward and a combination of the two to steer left or right.
