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:

Labor-saving All Stars: Fecon Forestry Mulchers

In this new series on Fully Equipped, we dive a little deeper into the benefits of some of our favorite labor-saving machines. 

First up: FECON MULCHERS

MULCHING MAKES IT BETTER Here’s the thing: the FECON BULL HOG mulchers can cut brush, stumps and trees up to 8 inches in diameter (cutting them down to ground level).  Trees and brush truly get mulched –which means you eliminate the need to do a lot of follow-up work. Chain saws, chippers, and the people required to run them…all disappear from your job-costs, just like the BULL HOG erasing a gnarly stand of trees and tangled brushes.

RIGHT MODEL FOR THE JOB Fecon and Martin Implement offer BULL HOG models that can work beautifully when hooked up to a compact track loader (with high-flow hydraulics). We also carry their FMX BULL HOGS, which are designed to use when you have to have the greater reach of an excavator. Attaching these mulchers to tracked machines allow you to maneuver in more variable terrain than you can access with a PTO / 3 Point setup on a tractor.  Check out the FMX50 in action on this video — you don’t want to try this with a tractor!
