Product Spotlight: Toro TRX Walk-Behind Trenchers

Why, what big teeth you have! …The business end of the new Toro TRX.

How Many Attachments Can the Toro Dingo Power?

It’s a question we get a lot: what attachments are there available for the Dingo?  The compact loader from Toro is a lot more than a glorified wheelbarrow, that’s for sure.  This one machine (that’s narrow enough to fit through 3 foot gates mind you) can power augers, trenchers, brush cutters and tillers, just to name a few.  It’s like a pocket knife out on the job site and it’s a big time labor saver.  Check out a few of the attachments we carry in our rental fleet in our latest video:

Skid Steer Attachment Special and Open House Event

A skid steer is only as useful as the attachment it’s running. Sometimes a bucket is all you need, but there are hundreds (if not thousands) of specialty attachments available for skid steers and track loaders. We carry a large inventory of common attachments like trenchers, grapple buckets, tillers, and brooms – things our customers use daily in their businesses – and because we keep a lot in stock we can offer great pricing on these attachments. Now for a limited time you can save even more with sale prices and special finance offers!

To help kick off the summer construction season we’re giving you special offers on all of our new skid steer attachments we have in stock. Here’s a chance to add a productive attachment to your fleet that will save you time and money. If you’re not sure which attachment is the best fit for you and your crew, you’re in luck! On Wednesday May 22nd and Thursday May 23rd we’re hosting an open house showcasing our available attachments. That means you can see first hand what these machines are designed to do and how they can be applied to your job site. We’ll have our manufacturer reps on hand from 10am to 1pm to answer any questions you have and also to provide safety tips and operator training. Don’t miss out on this! It’s a great chance to see what’s out there and to test it out before you consider buying. We’ll be showcasing Allied concrete breakers, Ammbusher mowers, McMillen post-hole diggers, Bradco trenchers, Sweepster brooms and MORE! The May 22nd open house will take place in Orland Park and the May 23rd will be hosted in South Elgin. We look forward to seeing you!
