If you take to a site with a kanga loader in order to bring it to level, you’ll find the process strangely rewarding! With that said, my assumption is that you are given to finding satisfaction when handling dirt. Even if you are not, you may well discover that you could be if you just put your hand to the levers on our green and gold machines.
How to level you site with a Kanga loader
Before you begin leveling your site on your kanga loader, it is worth standing back to asses your approach. As with many things in life, you need to ‘begin with the end in mind’. An imperative part of this vision of the end is to establish your ‘datum’ or reference point. It is worth nothing at this point that a laser level will be a great friend in this work. (Needless to say that U Kanga Do It will hire you one of these if you need!-$50 per day) From this datum you can begin to work out how you will achieve your level site. Whilst it is valuable to establish your reference point before breaking earth with the Kanga, you will often work out by sight how you need to start. However it is always valuable to know exactly at what level you need to finish the site.
If you have proceeded ‘working by eye’ on leveling the site you will eventually get to a point that you want to fine-tune things. With the laser level in hand I simply walk the site with my landscape paint and check intervals of the site to see if they need to be filled or cut. I mark the earth accordingly with the variation from level. For example ‘+20’ or ‘-50’. This enables me to then go with my second draft on the leveling process with the machine. This part of the process can be done anywhere from the beginning of the job right up to the end. It really is a matter of repeating and fine-tuning until you are satisfied with the end result. The precision of the end result depends of course on the requirements of your job.
The final part in finishing off your leveling is made good with a leveling bar. This is a basic attachment that you simply run over your site to take out the rises and fill in minor depressions. Not only does it make for a great finish it also looks great! In the end the best way to begin leveling your site is to hire a Kanga loader and give it a go.
