Toro
The American CTC Pioneer Touts Eight
Models Today

An Australian-born concept, the compact tool carrier (CTC) made its way to the United States in 1995, and shortly thereafter was acquired by Toro. Its initial popularity in the United States proved that there was indeed a market for compact tool carriers, and for the last 20 years Toro has continued to innovate and build upon the proven Dingo product line. Currently offering eight Dingo models, Toro customers can pick from a variety of Dingo configurations, including narrow track, wide track and wheeled models, which can be equipped with or without dedicated platforms, depending on operator preference and model. The models that make up the full line of Toro Dingo compact utility loaders include:

  • Dingo 323: Wheeled unit equipped with a Kohler Command Series CH23
  • Dingo 320-D: Wheeled unit equipped with a Kubota D722-E3B
  • Dingo TX 427: Tracked unit equipped with a Kohler engine
  • Dingo TX 427 Wide Track: Tracked unit equipped with a Kohler engine
  • Dingo TX 525: Tracked unit equipped with a Kubota engine
  • Dingo TX 525 Wide Track: Tracked unit equipped with a Kubota engine
  • Dingo TX 1000: Tracked unit equipped with a Kubota D1305 diesel engine and rated operating capacity of 1,000 lbs
  • Dingo TX 1000 Wide Track: Tracked unit equipped with a Kubota diesel engine and rated operating capacity of 1,075 lbs

With the addition of the Toro Dingo TX 1000 and TX 1000 Wide Track models in 2016, Toro says it offers the broadest range of compact tool carriers on the market. Toro gives customers excellent CTC solutions — from the entry-level wheeled 323 all the way up to the TX 1000 Wide Track — which boasts a rated operating capacity of 1,075 lbs. In addition to these trusted Dingo models, Toro will be launching the largest compact tool carrier on the market later in 2018 — adding even more power and range to the Dingo product family. The new TXL 2000 will feature telescoping loader arms to provide optimal versatility and streamline operations on the jobsite. This is especially useful in instances where extended reach is important to operator safety. Currently in the final stages of development and testing, the TXL 2000 represents a continuation of two decades of dedication to and innovation of the compact tool carrier equipment class.

Advice to Buyers

“Simply put, if contractors want to make the most of their equipment investment, they will want to take a close look at which CTC will allow them to be the most productive considering all the different tasks they need to accomplish on a regular basis,” says Kyle Cartwright, associate marketing manager at Toro. “There are many contractors who own a fleet of Dingo compact tool carriers because they can accomplish so many different tasks from dirt work and general material handling to landscaping, augering and trenching.”
