As a pioneer in the compact utility category, The Toro Co. introduce the newest and most powerful Dingo to its lineup at The Rental Show last week — the Toro Dingo TX 1000. The newest member of the Dingo family has a rated operating capacity exceeding 1,000-lb, which is the strongest in the category. When the loader arms are fully-extended, the hinge pin measures an impressive 81 inches from the ground to allow the TX 1000 to easily reach over the side of dumpsters and one-ton trucks to maximize jobsite productivity.
Also unique to the industry in the category is the vertical lift loader arm design, which keeps the load closer to the machine to allow operators to lift more weight with greater confidence. Additionally, this feature increases the reach at full height to make dumping more efficient. The vertical path of the lift arms is also exceptional in vertical applications with the auger or concrete breaker. Another exclusive feature on the new TX 1000 is the weight-to-power ratio. The narrow track model is 2,610 lbs (1,184 kg), and wide-track is 2,790 lbs (1,266 kg) and can lift more than any CUL in the category.
“We are extremely excited for the Dingo TX 1000 to increase the jobsite productivity of contractors. The new design innovations are intended to exceed operators’ expectations,” explains Sean O’Halloran, marketing manager for The Toro Co. “We listened to what was important to operators of compact utility loaders, and our end result is a highly-engineered, feature-rich machine that is the leader in a number of specifications across the product class.”
The Toro-exclusive traction control design is intuitive and effortless, providing operators all-day productivity. Other operator-centric features have been engineered into the new TX 1000, including thigh and hip padding on the operator station for a comfortable experience and an auxiliary foot control integrated into the suspended platform which frees the operator’s hands to focus on ground speed and attachment positioning.
In terms of productivity, the Kubota 1305 liquid-cooled, diesel engine boasts an impressive 24 gross hp at 2,600 rpm with increased displacement and high torque — giving the TX 1000 maximum power. The machine also is equipped with dual fuel tanks to reduce downtime in the field. Other time-saving features include an easily accessible engine for routine maintenance tasks, belt-free design to minimize maintenance, and ground speeds of 4.7 mph in both forward and reverse to maximize productivity.
With nine different models — from wheeled, tracked, gas or diesel, and now the all-new Dingo TX 1000 — Toro offers the strongest compact utility loader lineup in the industry. Customers can continue to count on a Toro Dingo to get their work done with a powerful, reliable, and easy-to-use lineup. The Toro Dingo will be available from Toro’s trusted network of equipment dealers across the globe.
