THE TORO DINGO GOES ELECTRIC! No, it’s not a new App. And no, it’s not a new style of dance-music the kids are all going wild for. It’s something even better!
Behold the e-Dingo 500, with a sizzling set of new whitewalls, this is a quiet revolution: the world’s first electric Dingo®.
It’s perfect for indoor construction jobs, but rugged enough (and powerful enough) to hang outside on the construction site with the big boys. This machine gives you all the functionality and flexible performance benefits of a standard Dingo, along with the power — with almost no noise, no fuel costs, and ZERO exhaust emissions. With a maximum operating capacity of 515 pounds, and hydraulics at 3,250 PSI, the e-Dingo has the kind of strength you need to handle a huge variety of jobs. As a bonus, it’s just as agile as all of its Dingo cousins.
TX1000: THE CATEGORY DEFINING COMPACT UTILITY LOADER The TX1000 is the closest thing in our inventory to an Iron Man suit: First of all, It’s VERY red. But it’s also compact, powerful as all get out, ridiculously versatile…and: YOU WILL LOOK GREAT IN IT. The 1,000 lb. rated operating capacity, smaller frame / lighter footprint makes the TX 1000 a go-to alternative to larger skid steer loaders and other multi-purpose machines. It can squeeze into very tight places — the 33.7-inch narrow track model passes through 36″ garden doors or gates. It’s also easy on the terrain: that same narrow track model (model 22327) applies 5.4 psi, and the 41″ wide track (model 22328) offers up only 3.6 psi! Now that’s some first class creepin’!
A NEW SERIES This is the first entry in a new Fully Equipped Series, where we’ll review and share (details) on maintenance recommendations for specific types of machines. User Manuals sometimes get filed away where they’re tough to retrieve, but you know as well as we do, that maintenance on these big machines is much more than just changing the oil every 100 hours of use. So we thought it might be helpful to do a series on these machines and, over time, build up a handy archive here on the pages of Fully Equipped. There’s even a full video on this one (below), and a full checklist you can download at your leisure.
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 radial lift 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.
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:
Our customer, a general contractor, does floor repair and tile work on commercial properties indoors. This encompasses floor demolition and removal in relatively confined spaces.
They now use a Toro Dingo 323 utility loader rubber tire unit equipped with a dual fuel system that switches between gas and a propane, which provides the versatility of working indoors or out. The narrow tires allow access through standard 36” doorways. The customer added a concrete breaker, backhoe, pallet forks, and a bucket to perform this type of work.
Heading to the NASCAR triple-header at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet this weekend? We are, and we’ll be in the New Holland booth by the Champions Park main gate, so stop by and say hey. They’ll be a lot of NASCAR racing for you to take in including the big Sprint Cup Series Race on Sunday, Sunday, Sunday. Lots of equipment to take in too. We’ll be bringing the best landscape and construction equipment for you all three days, like our New Holland L228 skid steer equipped with SnowWolf gear and our newest Toro Dingo, the TX 1000.
