Labor Saving All Stars: Toro Dingo Compact Utility Loaders

You can almost hear it roar: King of the Dingos, The TXL 2000.

MASTERS OF MULTI-TASKING
There are some machines that seem to “come out of the bullpen” day after day. Ready for anything. Nimble, powerful, adaptable, and so easy to jump on and use that you find yourself becoming attached to the things. That’s pretty much the whole plot with Toro Dingo lineup: the new TXL 2000, the TX1000 (wide and narrow), and the TX525 and TX427.  The more you use them…the more uses you discover. 

YOU SURE CAN GET ATTACHED TO THESE DINGOS…
The stand-and-drive setup is always easy and efficient, and our customers have always loved the simple and intuitive controls. It’s a machine you’ll learn quickly and love to operate once you do. But it’s the other end of the machine where “attachment” truly becomes a thing of beauty.  Just a few possibilities:

New Service: Hose Repair While You Wait!

Parkrimp hose repair: now IN-HOUSE at Martin Implement!

WHEN DUCT TAPE WON’T DO…
Nothing pokes a hole in an otherwise productive day like a leaky hydraulic hose. And whatever miracles the stuff might perform throughout the rest of the universe, you know Duct Tape just isn’t going to cut it.  (Hey, leave that stuff for the family car!) …Of course, we kid, BUT: for the machines you use to run your business and serve your customers, there’s just no substitute for a full-length crimp, total-pro hose repair.  At Martin Implement, we’re happy to let you know, we’re now doing those repairs in-house. 

WHILE YOU WAIT, WE REPAIR 
We’ve recently procured a state of the art, Parkrimp hose repair machine. This beauty enables us to restore almost any hose to like-new look and capability.  Most repairs can be accomplished in 30 minutes or less. So if your skid steer, wheel loader, or excavator needs a perfectly crimped new hose, bring it on in to Martin Implement — and scan our magazine table! — while your hose is remade to perfection.

Note that there are a few specialty hoses we’ll still need to send out, but the Parkrimp will very likely be the answer for your leaky hose. (If you have a unique hose, just call us and we’ll let you know if we can handle it.)

Cold Weather Best Practices Checklist

WHEN THE POLAR VORTEX IS BACK, AND EVERYONE’S CLOSED BUT YOU…At Martin Implement, We’re Prepared To Help 

The Midwest and the greater Chicago area has always been a great place to live if you like a REAL WINTER: snow, sleet, ice — and now and then, a truly epic cold-front.  Since so many of our customers are the folks everyone else turns to when the cold gets Arctic, we make sure at Martin Implement that we’re ready to serve our customers who are out on the front lines.

In that spirit, we thought it would be timely to share a few reminders as another Polar Express rolls into town:

FIRST AND FOREMOST: CALL US IF YOU NEED HELP. We’re open here at Martin Implement, and like the furnace repairman, we know that THIS is our customers’ hour of need. If we can be of help, remember that we have on-site service available 24/7.

KNOW YOUR EQUIPMENT: A blizzard is a good time to catch up on a little reading, so it may make sense to review the cold-weather capabilities and precautions that will keep your equipment in service without unnecessary wear or damage. Our handy cold weather best practices checklist is right here — it also has our phone numbers.

Just In: The New Toro Dingo TXL 2000

STEP UP TO THE NEW TOP DOG

The Toro Dingo line is an all-time favorite here at Martin Implement.  This is a machine that’s so easy to use, and at the same time, so powerful and versatile, it’s hard to imagine what life was like before these doggies showed up in our lives. And now there’s a new leader of the pack, the DINGO TXL 2000.

S – T – R – E – T – C – H – !
There are two versions of the TXL 2000: the version pictured, with Telescoping Arms, has an incredible reach of just over 10 feet. (A 123.4″ hinge-pin height, to be exact). That means you can easily clear the side of a standard dump truck, or backfill behind a retaining wall. With a full 44” of telescoped reach, you can also completely unload a flat-bed truck from one side. The Non-Telescoping version is no slouch either: with a hinge-pin height of 98.6″and a dump height of 64.1″.  Either way, you…can…put it on the board: the new TXL 2000 takes the stand-up skid-steer category to new levels of productivity and versatility.
